My google play services app has been using very high amounts of battery, memory,  and data. All of my apps show 30mb or more used In last 3 hours. In a 1 week time frame play services ran in the background for over 5 days. Now my play store is saying my apps like gallery are no longer functional for my device. Galaxy store says nothing like this.  Google account seems to be controlled by me and someone/something else. I can search online for things not important and have great service but as soon as I start searching for google related hacking in my account my searches stop loading. Account s start redirecting me also. Anyone else have these issues since September  to now?

in the case of suspected hacking, report to Samsung Members right away with title something like 'suspected hacking'

When I try to see devices linked to my cloud it shows this but I'm 100% sure I've never set up a work profile for anything. Screenshot_20211204-022409_Samsung account.jpg

Its mostly likely hacked if the devices are hidden
