So for weeks now a fake Chrome app had been constantly coming back to my phone every time i uninstalled it and until 2-3 days ago a fake email and Facebook app have started appearing too and they all require a ridiculous amount of permissions (ESPECIALLY the Facebook one as you can see in the video i recorded which has administrator permissions or atleast the next closest thing to that.).


While the fake Chrome only showed the occasional ad (Never more than 2-3 times a day.) recently the fake email and FB one have started installing apps on their own (With the installation prompts for each of them showing up.) and letting them run in the background (I can't find the installed apps on the home screen or Settings>Applications or through ES File Explorer either) but once i uninstall the fake apps the ones they installed stop running.

Also i tried booting into safe mode but it didn't go as expected.
