Samsung S8 Unknown download

Post by Doc67 »

Hey Techies!

I keep noticing my phone's download manager trying to download something unrequested by me. It has a long and scary number and no other information

Any ideas what it is?

Totally guessing, but kind of looks like it could be a video file, since it's so random. Have you recently watched a video on a site or something? Or maybe Google Play Store downloading some apps in the background or something. That's all I got.

I don't really watch video's on my phone, not YouTube etc. People send me random stuff that I watch and then delete right away as it just clogs up the memory.

It has done this download a couple of times with no adverse effect but I have occasionally cancelled the download, again with no adverse effect, so it seems benign - so far.

I just want to know what it is...
