Clean Master Antivirus issue

    While scanning my device, an issue was detected that requested four files - two with android icons, one with perhaps notification icon and another which I can't remember - to be uploaded to CM security cloud or something like that. I was unsure if I should allow this or decline, but then did it anyway.

    Afterwards, I downloaded CM security app as the clean master app requested. But the previous action made me realize that there can be security concern. I have my fingerprint added to my phone galaxy j7 prime which runs android marshmallow.

    Should I be worried? I later uninstalled both of the apps clean master and cm security.

    Once I thought I should reinstall clean master and perform the same process to take a screen shot, but the full version of clean master app can no longer be found on playstore, only the lite version is found.

    Any help and insight is appreciated.

    Get a security app from a reputable firm and see whether it finds anything. Don't install anything from Cheetah Mobile for any reason - they make their money from data-mining people who install their products, and are infamous for making fake claims in their apps.

    Is Kaspersky antivirus and security a good app for this?

    I've not used it, but they are a reputable company.
