I'm not sure if it's malware?


Recommended Posts

"TopBuzz" only shows up when I go into my storage device cleaner in my settings, during the brief few seconds where It scans and cleans storage space and cache. But I've never installed the TapBuzz app, and it's not anywhere in my apps either. I've looked through various files in solid explorer, and through all my applications lists. According to a few Malwarebytes scans, it didn't detect anything suspicious either. I've also used Sd Maid to try and locate anything with TopBuzz in it, but there was nothing. Afterwards, I tried getting the app to see if that had any effect. When I tried going into my settings and did the device storage cleaning again, TopBuzz was not listed. But it came back when I deleted the app again. The only place where the name shows up is in the device cleaner that came with my Galaxy s9 plus in my settings. I'm not sure if it could be harmful, but so far it hasn't had much effect besides apparently taking up slight cache space. No ads, sudden pop-ups, randomly installed apps, etc. Could it be harmful?

Hi @Kizu,

Although it is most likely harmless, I can check for anything malicious on your device if you send me an Apps Report.

To send an Apps Report with Malwarebytes for Android use the following instructions.

1.Open the Malwarebytes for Android app.

2.Tap the Menu icon.

3. Tap Your apps.

4. Tap three lines icon in upper right corner.

5. Tap Send to support

Choose an email app to send Apps Report.

Your email app will open with the Apps Report included. Send the Apps Report to create a ticket.

PM me the email used and/or the ticket number assigned.

Nathan
