    What is the mysterious "Apps" app on my KeyONE? It's installed, but doesn't show up in Google Play. Icon looks like a white "smile" on a blue background with with red, orange and yellow squares on the bottom. No developer info and its trying to access my phone.

    Delete it. It was bloatware accidentally installed by TCL. They fixed it so that it shouldn't come back.

    Yes, I think that is what it was. Although, it never showed up on my K1. I wasn't able to delete Apps without coming back until just a few days ago as well.

    Yes that's probably the one. I never got the K1 but it's on my K2 hiding in the apps drawer, lol.
    I think it can only be disabled however so I did that and will not open it again.

    Yes, it's okay.

    It allows for control of Cellular and GPS settings. It can be accessed by using an application called Chairlock which can be found on F-Droid.

    However, it only opens on the Key2. On the Priv and Key1, the app won't open.

    Any possible way to download the Key2 ARDA app on the KeyOne? Using the secret code *#*#7862732#*#* (RUNARDA) doesn't work either.

    P.S. thanks for your posts about disabling system apps. Learned a lot.

    I dont think that's possibile, they are both system apps. I'm not sure why it doesnt open on the Keyone or Priv.

    Cheers

    So the app isn't whitelisted, and appears to have an error when using the 7 digit code. Sigh.
