Today, above app was suddenly installed on my Note 4!

What purpose has this app and have more Note 4-users this app on his/her phone?

Can you check (please) in your app-manager (all files)?

All options to do so are greyed out. It accumulates about 500KiB of storage and network data a day despite the actual app being disabled (and not once ever being launched ) the only thing I can do is clear the storage data.

This really bothers me.

Seems you don't have root. But if you did then you'd have a few options eg uninstall, freeze. I can hear your frustration! Root!

Answer to facebook services on Andriod
I recently upgraded to the Galaxy S6, and wanted to remove any of the bloatware on the device. I disabled the FB app first, since I don't use it on any of my mobile devices. I then came across the com.facebook.appmanager and com.facebook.system applications listed under the application manager on the device. I first stopped and uninstalled the two apps, but I found that they both will update on their own over wi-fi once it's connected. I can't disable the two apps as that option is greyed out. I believe the answer to this is in the permissions of the appmanager stating that it may
1: Download files without notification
2: full network access
3: run at startup

Curiously after I have attempted to kill the app on any occasion that I'm using the device, I received an email from FB stating that they're sorry that I'm having trouble getting into my account. So, in conclusion, the apps must be gathering data (at least all configured email accounts) from the device and sending it to FB. Once FB identifies that an email address on the device matches an email account in their database, it sends the email. Looks like my next step is to root the device.

tried removing it using titanium backup
i tried removing this in my note 4 using titanium backup. sad to say it is making my auto rotate functionality unusable. it took me half day troubleshooting and identifying whats making auto rotate faulty. Why does Samsung loves bloatware? Its making me frustrated as i want to stay on touchwiz but it has so many bloatware. I dont want to go on other roms as majority of them are buggy. Does anybody know any solution with my problem? I dont want any freeze/disable solution pls.....

I've heard about this before in a different thread. It's something to do with a lib that's in the app. Try renaming the apk to bak see if that works, might keep the lib
