I know that a malicious malware/spyware has been installed on my Samsung Galaxy S3 phone and I constantly get the message to close apps not in use because they drain my battery. But I do not have anything running. I have about 3-4 apps, others were turned off/updates uninstalled a long time ago.

So the questions are not if my phone is infected - I know it is. The question is, how to find and remove it?

    It's not clear how do you know that a malware / spyware has been installed on your phone. I'm afraid no one will be able to help you. Please add necessary details to your question. – Irfan Latif Jan 12 '19 at 2:46

You can try using AVG Antivirus or maybe Malwarebytes' Antimalware which I use a lot and it's really a good app.


The app List My Apps lists all the apps installed on a device (including malware). Use this to identify the suspicious app and try to uninstall it from system settings.
