    Why does my s4 send me a message data being secretly used it just started happening about a month ago I have had DU speed booster and cache cleaner on my phone for about a 1 1/2 years and it just started sending me that message and I know it's the DU speed booster because when I link on it that app comes up. What does that mean?

    Maybe an update made those useless apps more useless? Just uninstall those apps. You don't need it.

    DU Speed Booster. Yeh your messages are being sent to servers in Beijing. DU means Baidu, largest internet company in China. I suggest you remove it, you don't need snake-oil spyware like that.

    Yeah, get rid of DU and don't go looking for something to replace it with. It's not actually improving the performance of the device (much more likely the opposite), just spouts BS to claim it is, and meanwhile it is spying on you. Same as Clean Master and similar crapware.

    Hi. I am getting the same message on my note 4 all of a sudden along with overheat warning. I can't seem to find DU Speed Booster on my phone though!?!

    Long press on the notification and it should tell you what app is producing the notification.

    Thank you Hadron =). I have cleared all messages, deleted a couple of apps that I have never used, and cleared my system cache. If it ever shows again, I will try your suggestion. I appreciate the response!

    You need to identify which app is doing it. If you have any speed boosters/phone cleaners/ram manager/other name for a task killer, anything from Cheetah Mobile, DU or similar company, I'd start by getting rid of those.

    @Mandy brar. You contradicted yourself.
    You either do or don't.
