Dear Community,
As some of you have become aware already,
there is an intrusion on Galaxy A53 in which the manufacturer has included a hidden spy app called Softbank.
Please avoid this phone unless and until Samsung stops selling phones with Softbank running as a hidden spy app.
If this were a legitimate safe app, Samsung would label its purpose.

Softbank is a Japanese cell phone company. Unless you have proof of another app with the same name.
But it is the name of a Japanese phone company.
Where is your sources about samsung putting a "spy" app which also has the name of a popular phone company in japan

Or maybe, don't use the app? Disable it if it bothers you so much.

Great idea. The point here is to make Samsung aware of this so systemic action is taken, not just ignoring the monkey on the back.

Whatever Softbank is, Samsung should be clearing it from phones or stating its purpose and safety.

It is within Apps and this phone is brand new. As far as a spy app, if it is from Samsung, it should say Samsung. If it is from a third party, it should not be a hidden app and there should be a clear indication of its safety and purpose.それはアプリ内にあり、この電話は真新しいです。スパイアプリに関しては、Samsung製の場合は、Samsungと表示されます。サードパーティ製の場合は、非表示のアプリであってはならず、その安全性と目的が明確に示されている必要があります。
