when I searched for installed app from setting>App then under ALL heading I found the "Commmon data service" app with unknown/suspicious icon. is it a android pre-installed system app? or something from unknown sources? Device is: HTC Desire 620g, dual sim with Android version=kitkat 4.4.2, & Kernel version=3.4.67

pls help..

  • Since different phones come with different apps pre-installed, you'll need to edit your question to say what phone you have and whether you got it from a carrier. – Dan Hulme Mar 6 '17 at 13:53
  • Thank u Dan for the reply, I should have added the device details earlier, however let me know if this particular app is from Android system installation or from HTC. Thanks, – Rabi Ranjan Mar 8 '17 at 7:15

It seems to be a program that enables the device to access data from one app while using another. Like an internal search engine as it were... I'd leave well alone....

  • Yes I also think so but the main concern is whether this app is a part of Android system or OEM or installed separately from any unknown third party..., thanks, – Rabi Ranjan Mar 8 '17 at 7:20
  • You say "seems to be". What information is this based on? – Dan Hulme Mar 8 '17 at 9:52
