Hi folks,
I bought a Samsung A20 recently and I decided to poke around inside using adb.
When I listed the network connections with "netstat -e", I saw that one of them was a connection to, which raises concern because I've seen used in email phishing scams to hide sketchy activities.
The user/app that had this connection open was u0_a178.
How can I find out what app that corresponds to?

tcp6 32 0 Galaxy-A20:40338 CLOSE_WAIT u0_a178 3755349

To answer my own question:

The access was from the AMC app.

I typed:
ps -fA | grep u0 | sort
And this showed me that u0_a178 is AMC's somewhat badly written app.
