    I'm receiving these mobile broadcasts from like 3-4 days, they seem to be in some kinda code language and I'm receiving somewhat 50 per day. I'm receiving them even when my internet connection is off , I'm scared if my cell is being hacked. Please help!
    Attached some screenshots down. Screenshot_2018-08-10-16-42-04.png Screenshot_2018-08-10-16-41-47.png Screenshot_2018-08-10-16-41-51.png

    Hello there!
    I saw you posted this in your device, Lyf Water 1 forum and thought it may get more attention in this forum, so I moved it ;)

    My guess would be that message is coming from some misbehaving application that you downloaded. Did it start appearing after a certain app was installed?

    The last app I installed was Microsoft Hyperlapse which was about a week ago. These broadcasts messages didn't appear then ,they started appearing somewhat 3-4 days after.

    Well, looking at the permissions, it just could be coming from that app. (the app appears to be able to activate wifi, internet and gps) Perhaps disable or uninstall it just to see if those "mobile broadcast" popups disappear?

    It would help if you share the name and model of your device so AF members can check into that particular device model infrastructure to help rectify your issue. Also are you using any type of encrypted email or SMS messages apps on your device? Rooting information would be also helpful etc?

    This may also be of some used to you:

    The Signal Protocol (formerly known as the TextSecure Protocol) is a non-federatedcryptographic protocol that can be used to provide end-to-end encryption for voice calls, video calls,[3] and instant messagingconversations.[2] The protocol was developed by Open Whisper Systems in 2013[2] and was first introduced in the open source TextSecureapp, which later became Signal. Several closed source applications claim to have implemented the protocol, such as WhatsApp, which is said to encrypt the conversations of "more than a billion people worldwide".[4]Facebook Messenger also say they offer the protocol for optional "secret conversations", as does Google Allo for its "incognito mode".

    It could be Base64 encoded, try putting it through a Base64 decoder, there's any number of them online. Just Google it.
