    Hello. I have an S10+
    During a recent scan I noticed an app called Your Phone Companion, which I'd never seen before and never installed myself.

    My question is, does this app come pre-installed on Android phones and I just never noticed it before? Or did it get pushed out with a software update? I know it's a legitimate Windows app, but I never installed it and I don't want it on my phone. I also noticed that when I went to the app list and clicked on this app, there's no option to uninstall it, only a 'force stop' button. Should I be concerned? And how can I get this app off my phone?

    Thanks in advance!

  2. This appears to be a piece of system bloatware that was installed with an update a while back. I have it on my S9, I just ignore it.

    Yeh, Samsung has a partnership with Microsoft to install MS apps on Samsung devices.
