    Got my new LG Stylo Note 6 Dec 22. Promptly got the flu and woke up around the 26rh. Had a notification that someone joined one of my google photo albums. I'd been hacked. Got in through a 3rd party preinstalled app. There were approximately 20. So I uninstall. Then my phone bricks, pin number changed and Gmail account deleted. I just got operational about 6 days ago. Now I'm getting a software update prompt that states it is Android software update when in fact they are LG apps. It is spinning in the background as we speak waiting on WiFi connection. I need to force stop as I'm not using any of the LG apps that aren't necessary. My question is, how can I determine crap internal system apps that I have a feeling are troublesome and can be breeched. Thank you for your help in advance.

    internal systems are safe and i have never heard of a hack using system apps. been dealing with android since its inception and never had to worry about them. there is no list of apps that are "troublesome" so i have no idea how you will determine them.
