Recently several apps were downloaded onto my phone!
I don't have a facebook nor an instagram and when I checked my phone five minutes ago BOTH apps for these sites were added. No one in my family has them either so I am very concerned as to why they are on there. The same thing happened with twitter a couple days ago. Don't have twitter and then the app appears!

Is this happening to anyone else? Random apps being added to your phone?

Re: Recently several apps were downloaded onto my phone!
phone companies can "push" apps to your phone...

It was prolly some sort of auto update and the apps were downloaded... sucks

just delete em if you dont want them.

Re: Recently several apps were downloaded onto my phone!
I have and they end up coming back. I'm seriously frustrated with this. I don't want to sound like one of those people shouting "DAT DERE GOVERNMENT IS SPYIN ON ME. THEY GON CHIP ME. ITS OBAMA" but I've asked a few other people at Uni and they say the same thing has happened.

I also haven't upgraded to iOS6.

Maybe Apple is just pissed at me.

Go into the general menu and shut off all Push Options for all of your apps. Then go to Safari and turn on private browsing and block cookies. Then hit the clear buttons underneath and clean your phone.

That should stop the bullshit negro.

Peace.

Do you keep your data in the cloud? Do you have other devices on your account like an iPad? When ever my 9 year old downloads a game onto the iPad it shows up on my phone

Re: Recently several apps were downloaded onto my phone!
do you have a Mac? do you sync it? did you back up your phone to the Mac?

you can never really delete apps...you can only tell iTunes not to add it to your phone...maybe that's how it got loaded onto your phone? Also, do you have Wi-Fi synch enabled? which means if it is on, it will also sync wirelessly...just some ideas.

No Mac, no iPad, etc. Just a cheap ASUS laptop. Don't use the Cloud because to me that stuff could go bad really fast.

Dr. DoomLittle - :)

To both Anons, I don't ever back stuff up. If I need a document, I print it. If its music, I have the discs. Nothing is that important (ie I'm not a picture person)

Honestly, I might be reading too much into these things (been on GLP too long methinks)

Again, thanks for the responses you three!

If its a jailbroken phone it could provide a remote shell and you should change your root password.

Not jailbroken, but I am considering it.

Would jailbreaking make my phone more susceptible to these kinds of situations?

Not in generell if you change the default password.
From where have you got the phone? Maybe its already jailbroken and you don't know. Or somebody else did it without giving you notice.

Straight from the Apple store three years ago.
