As my user name suggests im probably just being paranoid. But im not that tech savy and there are apps that I don't recognize. Im paranoid because I've busted my soon to be ex wife going through my phone and emails multiple times.
autopreconfig is one and it's probably just a primary function of the phone but I don't know that. Tried google for hours and didn't find anything helpful. There are tons of apps in the app list that I have no clue what they are and have a whole lot of permissions on my phone.

the only rule I go by with apps on my phone is when I go to application manager if it lets me uninstall it its not needed otherwise it will just let me disable it fi you can only disable it your phone needs it

What kind of phone do you have? If you could also provide a list of apps that you don't recognize, that'd be helpful. :)
