    If the phone's not rooted (you can check with this app Root Checker) A factory reset will clear out anything she did to it. It could be that she has access to your Google account, so I'd change the password and enable 2-step verification.

    Thanks .. I changed password and she keeps getting into my accounts, how is that possible? Facebook, google photos, instagram, she changes my passwords and locks me out. I have too many memories of my daughter on google photos to just give up on trying to get back into my account.

    My guess would be she's got herself setup as an alternate emergency contact, so when you change your password, she gets notified. Since you don't have 2-step verification on, password recovery can be done by any contact on the account.

    With 2-step verification, when you try to login to your account they send you a code by text (or phone call ... i'd avoid email) and without that you can't get in to make changes.

    Without root some things are possible.

    If it's rooted it'll more then likely install as a system app vs a user app. Best bet is to first check for root, 2nd look at system apps if root is present. Look at the permissions for the app. A enormous amount of permissions is going to be the offending app if one is present.

    If it's not rooted or even if it is look under security, device admins and see what apps have that kind of control.

    She'd only be able to do that with physical access to the phone.

    Uh oh. I see one click root in there which means that it's quite possible the devices are rooted. You could install root Checker to verify this. If they are rooted, then really the only way to make these devices secure again is to flash the stock factory firmware. While that's probably doable for the Samsung phone, I'm not sure about the ZTE and probably not for the tablet.

    In the browser bar it says mspy which is a spy app company. Are you on their webpage?

    FWIW recent ZTEs are a tough nut to crack even when one is determined to root them, and can be impossible to root.

    Good catch @James L mspy is indeed monitoring software and if you look at their website it does look like you've got some stealth monitoring going on based on what you've described. I would point out that while this does have some legitimate purposes, to install it on someone else's device without their knowledge or permission could be illegal. You might want to check with local authorities (if you want to press this). Other wise, if the phones not rooted, a factory reset would clear it out, but make sure before you reset that you set your phone to NOT restore apps automatically.

    @lunatic59 . My respect goes out to u as I intrude into ur afternoon but I was wondering if u know what this is. I'm getting the impression that she got into the OS and modified certain apps because she did this thing where she can draw over an other app to show Facebook but with certain gestures she can take picture send sms of location and audio clip in EMAIL (is shit like that possible)

    There are security apps that can take pictures remotely and email them. There are also gestures that can be set to take a screenshot. I don't know of any that work together.

    You attached photo looks like graphics files that are part of a theme or app.
