I just scanned my wife's S10 phone using Norton 360. It showed a few things that were different than my phone.  With both have the S10 and she isn't likely to install anything.  So I was surprised to find a few things the scan on my phone didn't find.  One was HdmApp (originally, I had a typo here and put N instead of H, but have since corrected it).  I haven't heard of HdmApp and I couldn't find it in the list of apps (including hidden apps).  Nor could I find it in My Files.

Anyone know what it is and where it is on the phone?

HdmApp is a standard low-level core app ... easily found under Apps

Not NDM, Hdm.  I found HdmApp Apk in the android store, but no way would my wife get an Apk.  (I'm a programmer, she is not).  But the store didn't really say what it was.

You should correct the spelling in your original post ... you have a conflict of spelling

Oops.  Thanks.  I wondered where the ndm came from 🙂   When I saw the first reply, I thought  "where did he get that?".  I looked at the title and thought, "Yep, typed it right".  I guess I should have re-read the post itself.    

I changed it, thanks.

Not there on my phone.  (I'll have to look on the wife's phone later as she is watching some crafting video right now with the phone plugged into the old Windows phone puck with hdmi output showing dex).

Do you know why it might be on her machine and not mine?  (Same model S10 but mine has more memory and storage).

So it's a safe system app then?

It's there ... you need to enable "Show System Apps"

Great, except I don't see where to enable that.  That option is right there in the Apps page?  Sorry for not being able to figure that out, but I haven't tried to do that sort of thing before with "hidden system apps".  I found 2 places to show hidden stuff.  One in finder settings, and the other in My File settings.  Neither one of those seems to have let me see hidden ones in the Apps page.

One more clue?   🙂
