    reboot your phone. if it is still happening try rebooting into safe mode. if it is still happening, try a factory reset. if it is still happening, go to your carrier and see what they say.

    There's hidden files because they reside within system folders, nothing to worry about

    A lot of the time, the files are labeled "hidden" because they have file-extensions that most normal user apps can't process. PC likes to do similar things as well sometimes..

    Not a good start to a new beginning, no need to be offended, all he was saying were your pictures were large and taking up the whole screen, pictures that size are best as a thumbnail rather then full size in the post, he also said it jokingly with an LOL.

    So let's all keep this thread on track and all get along so it doesn't get out of hand for no reason. Cheers

    OneDeep, welcome to site !!

    well that my sense. But what about the lockscreen capture. that wasnt s hidden file. Why would my lock screen need to be "captured" and the file be in encrypted text. I dont get for what reason that would be for. Never seen it on any phone I had before

    i would definitely put the phone in safe mode and see how things look from there. if it looks normal then it might be from a 3rd party app either being nefarious or has been corrupted(more like a bug then something nefarious). you can then try unstall any recent apps and see of that helps.

    if all else fails like i mentioned in my previous post you can do a factory reset.

    Thanks for the advice. Ive considered doing the factory reset, but I'm a curious and investigative person. So part of me wants to figure out whats going on. Also for my drvice administrators are Google Pay and Find my Device. Just yeaterday the device administrators were Lookout and Google Play Store, But when I hit the check mark to uncheck one as the administrator, the screen just flashes and goes back to the home screen

    well i still don't think your phone is hacked, but something definitely seems wonky. it could be a glitch of some sort and a factory reset might help. if your phone has a safe mode, i would try that and see if something else is screwing with the device.

    I will try that, becauae there are definetly strange things going on. one more example is the developer options under USB Configuration it was set to Media Transfer Protocol. I changed it to charging, and now its back on MTP. Its just things like that. Another theory I have and have read about is some of these phones come brand new from the manufacturer with pre installed malware.
