    It has come with one of the apps you have installed. Anything you installed or updated shortly before it started is a suspect. There isn't just one app with this.

    When you find it report the app to Google, as I'm sure this thing breaks play Store rules.

    There's another recent thread on this, and in the later posts there people were naming apps they'd found it in.

    You need to identify which of your apps contains it and get rid of that app.

    If you can't find any other way, trial and error can be used for this.

    Read the help I got on it yesterday. Seems to have worked. Start deleting apps that you downloaded before it started.
    Cheers

    I uninstalled Amazon Shopping, and all is right in my world now! That's the app that brought Beita Plugin to my phone .

    Wow. No way!! O use Amazon way too much to delete. At least in Canada. I deleted Rosegal and some other similiar ones that I have no idea how they got here. I didnt even order anywhere. So that seemed to do it. I still have my Amazon apps. I use it too much too much. That damn WISH I think is the culprit. Its like a bad smell but no one knows where it came from. That started my madness. It attaches itself to everything.! I never shopped that either. Oh and TOPHATTER....RUN DONT WALK FROM THAT NIGHTMARE. thanks for your input though. Appreciate😊 it.

    I only uninstalled Amazon Shopping, not the "regular" Amazon app. It was the shopping app thst contained the plugin.

    Oh really? U.S. Amazon or Canada? I have both. I tried to uninstall it but it wont let me. It came with the ph I guess. Also Amazon Assistant. Maybe I will uninstall that as well.

    I'm in the U.S. Do you have an app that's called Amazon Shopping? Maybe it's called something else in Canada. I'd uninstall everything except the basic Amazon app and see if that does the trick.

    Same thing with my AT&T Samsung J3. Came from nowhere, unable to delete because not showing in Apps. I spotted tiny SmartScan icon when it blocked my phone, so went to Google Playstore, searched for Smart Scan, uninstalled, problem appears to be solved. Quelle nuisance! :0) Apparently, from the questions in this forum, it is downloaded in a number of apps. LOCK 'EM UP! ;)
