Hi omotivates ! This does not sound good. Have you installed any app out of the Play Store or accessed links with possible virus? If yes, this could be associated with this. Did you already try doing a master reset and installing an anti-virus? If not, we recommend you to do so.

I havent installed anything outside the google play store and Ive been very careful when browsing the internet and always keep my bluetooth and wireless off. I have lots of other screenshots pointing to the fact that my phone has been hacked with TermuX using WLAN Hotspot and more than likely Hotspot 2.0. and Metasploit Framework along with an APK file with embedded payload.

Understood! Did you already try doing a master reset and installing an anti-virus?

yes tried all the above with a sprint specialist and it all was still on my phone.

Good morning. My recommendation is that you bring the device to a Sprint repair store and have the device diagnosed.  For a store near you, visit: Sprint.com/storelocator

If you can still access the google play store you might try installing Malewarebytes and let it do a scan to see if it can clean things up.
