I put a message up around may this year about a strange incident that happened on Google Chrome while I was printing. I noticed on a page on Google Chrome that there was a man dressed in all black and had his hood up and something covering his face and when I clicked onto the page this person vanished. I don't know what happened and who he was, is there anything I can do to search on my Samsung Galaxy S10 phone to see if someone has managed to get into my phone. Is there anyone who has any ideas what this could have been please message me as soon as possible thank you. I am very very concerned.

@Bev54  Think it may not be a big concern ,  possibly just incognitio mode at the time. However  If you go to Settings-Battery and Device care-Device Protection. Run a scan and see if anything detected there.

 Have you noticed any strange behaviour in your applications such as switching on or off unexpectedly.  Is there anything that you do not recognise on your device such as Messages or anything installed.  If anything of this nature it would be best to Factory Reset (after backing up Data) and change passwords but if not and nothing further since then likely not  necessary.

Generally it is best to ensure you are up to Date with security updates  and it safer to just use the Galaxy and Google stores for downloading apps, 2 factor authentication  is also a good idea .

@Bev54  More concerning, though has there been any other issues lately?  in any case you may wish to follow my suggestions and possibly Factory Reset/change passwords.
