    Hi.
    I have just found that my phone has randomly downloaded an app to my phone without my permission it was called ! HOT APPS ! This is not something I have ever seen before I promptly uninstalled but now when I go onto Google play it doesn't show up in my previously downloaded apps and doesn't appear to exhist anywhere when I have searched.
    I plan to factory reset to ensure it doesn't happen again. But I was wondering if anyone would know what caused this?
    Thanks

    Are you sure it was installed or just a shortcut on the homescreen?

    It appeared in my Apps page there was no home screennshort cut or any other evidence of it and I was able to uninstall it so it must have got onto my phone somehow I am just not sure how.
