No please.
These are unknown applications downloading self in my phone.
The unknown applications setting is turned off.
I have performed factory reset several times yet they come back after a day or two.
Thanks.

Further to my last explanation,the following applications secretly installed themselves in my phone in the last one hour: Toolbox, Touch light, Branch and Opera Mini.
These applications were removed by me earlier to day.

You installed some other app that has malware included in it and that malware is automatically installing the other apps.

You have to find the app that has the malware in it and uninstall that app to stop the other apps from installing.

Whats up. So Ive been trying to format and use another partition of my sd card with link2sd but my problem is that every time I reformat another partiton of my card as ext2/3/4 the android shows card as damaged and only that partition until I reformat back to fat32. Why is my phone not recognizing ext data file and Im using AParted btw. ALSO tried app2sd but it asked me to mount the 2nd partition and going further on the next screen it showed up some kind of error and card was "damaged". Should I try another kernel on my phone ?

Try Malwarebytes from Google Play.

Some state that the Ambient Display Setting(s) are located within the System UI Tuner as reflected by the following example image.

Though, unfortunately, there's some that state the only resolution was to perform a factory reset/wipe using either safe mode and/or recovery mode.

Try to remember what you have recently installed, one of the last things that you installed yourself is causing this, use trial and error by uninstalling one of the last few apps that you installed, if the other apps are still auto-installing then you know the app that you uninstalled wasn't the one causing this, reinstall that app then try uninstalling one of the other apps that you installed. Repeat this process of uninstalling apps and seeing if it stops the auto-installing apps, if it doesn't stop, reinstall the last that app that you uninstalled and repeat the process with a different app, once you get to where the auto-installing apps are no longer being installed then you know that the last app that you uninstalled was the problem app.

Or, you can use the Malewarebytes app or any other app that scans for malware, If it finds anything, uninstall whatever it shows as malware.

Faced the same issue on various devices. Resorted to partitioning/formating card with a Windows app. Free version of Partition Magic works a treat.

So I've had an Amazon fire 7 for a few years, which I unlocked last night. I made a mention or two here and around about a selinux booleans called device_unlocked in /sys/fs/selinux/booleans.

By default, it is set to 'off'

Code:
su
getsebool -a
device_unlocked --> off
Well I took a look at it again after I unlocked it, and guess what. Now it says 'on'. Now we can set that as root, but it won't persist on a reboot. I wrote a small script to go in su.d to set the bool to 'on' after booting, on my Amazon Fire HD 10, but that's just like setting the selinux switch to run at boot.

So the bool is definitely tied into the the device actually being bootloader unlocked. It's also written in the selinux policy. I would love to hear what anyone thinks of this, even if it's crazy.
