I have a moto z2 play with a stock android 7.1 firmware. Every now and then I notice random apps are being installed by themselves. I have a stock android rom and it's never been rooted before.

  • How can these apps just install themselves?
  • What type of android vulnerability is this?
  • How can I find the culprit app or bug to prevent this?
  • Point wise : 1. By malware (see that tag for more) 2. It's not likely to be a vulnerability , else this would have been reported widely so back to 1. Last how to find you will find hints in malware tag ; Prevention again read questions there – beeshyams Jan 13 '18 at 8:25
