    Hi,
    what do you think about this black thing starting right after encryption process finished. Is this malware trying to run way before any security app, is this something in the firmware or what? It is Samsung Galaxy A70 with the latest update and android 9. If this is the malware it is trying to get to the settings but its blocked with a pin of sp soft app lock. Who said that android 9 smartphones does not get viruses??
    Any info is more than welcome.
    Thank you!

    That black screen worries me. There was not that black screen on a brand new phone. This is happening after latest update. But sometimes it happened like the black screen was coming from the left to the right corner always with app locks triggered. That was i thought that it might be some app with no ui starting. Otherwise i have some good antivirus like AedanSafe with even better firewall but nothing gets detected. Also my network is under RATtrap firewall protection.

    It's most likely related to the update. I see absolutely no reason to assume that your phone is infected.

    It's actually pretty hard to get infected on an Android device.
