Clock app disappeared and com.sec.android.app.clockpackage.clockapplicationsettings apk popped up in its place. Same thing happened with the Bixby app. Both kept crashing. I disabled Bixby, but can't disable or delete the clock app to re-download. How do I fix the issue?

If you can't find the app on the device go to Play Store or Galaxy Store and uninstall it from there. I personally only download from Play Store.

@Itshimslim This is very strange. I would download and run an application like malwarebytes or BitDefender to determine if there is malware on your phone. 

If it was me, I would backup my critical data and then do a factory reset.
