    No idea what that may be.
    Do you get ads on your device?

    Sometimes adware/malware can show up as an actual app, usually without a name or icon so that it won't show up in the app drawer.

    But it will show up in the apps section of your settings.

    Starting from your homepage, goto

    Settings
    Apps
    (all apps)

    and scroll until you find the app that is the one you showed in the photo.

    I could be all the way down at the very bottom of the list.

    Here you can delete all data first, and then uninstall the app.

    If the Uninstall button is not functional, then goto

    Settings
    Security
    Device Administrators

    and look for that app there.

    If it is there, you can deny/revoke the administrator permission for that app, go back to it in the app settings page, clear the data (again) and uninstall it.

    Could you provide more details as to just how bad is your battery drain situation is? Your screen captures don't really reveal anything out of sorts. Do you need to recharge your phone often each day? Are you a relatively heavy user (almost always using your phone to do something) or more of a use-just-whenever-necessary user? That's of course a vague, subjective kind of question but if your phone is constantly in use that's a pretty heavy draw on the battery (the CPU, the GPU, and display, all power hogs, are taxing the battery of power). But otherwise, how you defining how bad is the battery drain? Has it significantly changed since in the last day or so, or are you comparing it to a few months ago?

    Yes. It's not showing up as an app . Only in the battery usage

    Moderate usage . It won't last a full day . It will last only 5 hours when I'm using the hotspot with the screen off

    I'm going to say it's about half of battery life before that widget appeared

    Try enabling Developer Options and there should be a Running Services (or Process Statistics) option that shows a more detailed summary that the Settings >> Battery menu.

    There might also be a Cached Processes tab next to Running Services that you should check too.
