My S20 suffered a lot because of it and now it's at Samsung. This is a Galaxy S12 and already, pictures in it, documents, total psy ops. I am looking for an answer here!
I am afraid I will never be able to live a peaceful life.

I understand how frustrating this is. If the phone has been rooted, the original software would need to be reflashed. This can be done by any local uBreakiFix location. https://www.ubreakifix.com/samsung If you’re worried about your phone getting hacked, or if you think it may have been hacked already, there are some steps you can take to keep it safe. For example, you should only download apps using the Galaxy Store or Play Store and you shouldn’t click on malicious links in apps, texts, or emails. You can also keep your phone safe by running anti-malware apps and removing apps that are causing issues. Give this link a try: https://www.samsung.com/us/support/troubleshooting/TSG01209886/
It is also recommended that you change your account passwords.
The phone can also be shipped in for service. However, if the device has been rooted this does void the warranty. For service options, please reach out to us via one of the following options: 1.

Aside from some helpful apps from the play store I ended up learning and running ADB. After running different commands to the phone and it returning the outputs it did is when I realized the actual enterprise that I'm up against. Honestly, the only way out is to completely start over. New phone, cards, accounts, because changing your passwords from a friends computer ain't gonna do $#!+. Gotta replace the router too.
Here's where I'm disappointed. There's no warning before your privacy doesn't exist anymore it just happens and if you try to find help or answers your **bleep**.
Ultimately, everything always reverts back to "This is the EULA you agreed upon." Again, gotta keep it short but just wanted to say Vic that you're not going crazy, and unless you're a developer/programmer, the few core enterprises behind the scene of this remote ambush will always be 10 steps ahead.
