Hi Dmarti25,

 

This has become a big problem with cheaper priced Devices originating from China, they come preinstalled with malicious apps and cannot be removed using Android's uninstaller because they are installed as a system app.
 
These apps on your device should not be trusted, there are a few things you can do.
 
- Disable the app – Can be done via Android Settings -> Apps -> bad app -> Force stop/disable
        This will prevent the app and any associated services from running.
 
- Root your device and uninstall the malicious apps. Usually reserved for advanced users, please do at your own risk.
 
- Install different, trusted, ROM to replace infected one. Usually reserved for advanced users, please do at your won risk.
 
- Return device where purchased.
 
I wish there were more options but where Android's openness and built in security collide; openness, anyone can flash a device with a custom ROM, security, you can't uninatll system apps.
 
Regards,
 
-Armando
