    Rogue App????

    Hi All
    I noticed something strange today while just looking at my installed apps on the market and an app has appeared called "TWOSTARS" i have never downloaded this app and it does not give me the option to uninstall it ?? also it doesn't seem to appear anywhere else on my prime i have checked the downloaded/all/running section in settings and it isn't there if i select open on the market place Polaris opens??
    I am an android and prime rookie and i may be missing something obvious here but if it shouldn't be there i would like to uninstall it but how ?? i have searched the forum and cant seem to find anything regarding this app or anything similar please accept my apologies if its staring at me and I've missed it.

    Thanks In Advance

    Paul

    Yeah seems kind of fishy to me. Does it appear in the Apps list in Settings? Go into Settings, Apps and find it there. You can Force Stop if it's running and Uninstall. A Google search turned up Twostars as an Asian app developer. Toast it IMO.

    Have you downloaded anything recently from the market?
    Or sideloaded an App from a sketchy source?

    Nothing showed up in a search of the market when I looked
    Are you experiencing any pop up Adds?

    When you search in Settings-Apps, go to all apps, and look at apps that start with com.twostars.*

    Or better yet look under Running Apps for an app starting with com.twostars.*

    Also you said when you tap on it in the Google Play installed app list, it opens Polaris?

    I have Polaris disabled, but when I was using it there was nothing like this in my apps list on Google Play

    I would suggest you install ES File Explorer and use the search feature to scour your system for anything with *twostars* and delete it.

    Just try a reboot see if it clears it out of the system

    If it's showing up in your purchased apps list, what was the app, just out of curiosity?

    Perhaps you and the OP can compare apps?

    I would though be interested to know what it was.

    Also after years of using "questionable" apps, finally learned my lesson a few years ago when I had to wipe a laptop to get rid of a virus/trojan
