Hi @Zam,

The detection used for Android/Adware.Cootek is very specific.  There are several versions of TouchPal for vivo that indeeded infected with this adware.

Please note that adware is NOT the same as malware —   it's more of an inconvenience than a threat.  For more information, you can read two recent blog posts about adware.
