From what I can tell, this is a some test on Samsung's end to assure services are working. U expect Samsung will make an official statement explaining but I want to mention it now to hopefully put some of you at ease.
I hope this helps.
Ok but now that I know it's there, I went and checked and I cant turn off the app or its ability to track me, it says the device needs it on in order to function. What the actual F.... start paying attention citizens
Yep, it's a self-installing app that was supposed to go unnoticed until a recent malfunction. It tracks your phone all the time and is not allowed to be turned off. Welcome to 1984
My first thought was some hacker trying to get some kind of verification to either control my phone or validate an attempt at accessing a bank account so I just cleared to notification and changed a few passwords. Overkill to be sure but better safe than sorry (and broke)
