The other day my phone number was added to my Google account, data was turned on and off. Different things have been happening. I have a LG V35 and it has an LG VPN section and when I check the log. It shows background scripts or whatever being run in my phone. I do not have a VPN. I tried resetting my phone to factory and it didn't work. Please someone help me get this person out of my phone. The other day it said it got one profile.

  • Its the log from the app itself. I dont think its from some hacker. What other problems are you having that suggest it is hacker? – Rohit Jul 7 '19 at 4:15
  • My Google phone number being added to my Google account. Me having to toggle my data on and off like somebody battling over a light switch. – Chrissorey Jul 7 '19 at 9:00

    imagine i would give you full remote access via USB debugging on my phone. what exactly would you do if you were the "hacker"? btw you would need root access for a backdoor, and for this you need physical access to my device at least once. And why should a 'hacker' switch off internet connection when this is the only way for remote access? You are really not that interesting.. – alecxs Jul 7 '19 at 9:10
  • @alecxs agreed. This looks over-consciousness without evidence. Or may be the issues are something else. – Irfan Latif Jul 7 '19 at 13:02
  • My phone is not rooted. I have no VPN. A guy did have physical access to my phone and messed around with developer options and what not. He was telling me how he could hack into people's Wi-Fi and all kinds of shit. – Chrissorey Jul 8 '19 at 21:27

Look through your installed app (in settings). Is there some new weird app you have never seen before and not installed yourself which is labeled as "System-App"? Yes? Your are screwed. Only way to get rid of it is to re-flash the whole ROM. Well you could also root your phone and use one of countless apps/modules to remove System-Apps. But God knows what the virus will do when it gets root access. I have seen this years ago on a Huawei Mate 1. The app was turning on WiFi and Data permanently to load ads and malware. Factory reset did nothing. Clean flash of a new ROM was the only way.
