You can view *all* apps installed on your phone by going to:

Settings > Apps.

Every application will be listed, even if it's hidden on your home screen.

Hope this helps.

@kingpatch843 To include system apps, you need to:

  1. Open Settings
  2. Click Apps
  3. Click the downward pointing arrow with 3 lines to the right of "Your apps"
  4. Enable "Show system apps"

Now does anyone know where to find a list of what system apps can be found on each phone so I can tell if there's something on my phone that isn't supposed to be?

Hello, and thank you for reaching out. 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/
