Strange 'Service Started' notification

Hello, 

 

At random points throughout the day, a small pop-up notification appears on my Galaxy S8 that just says 'Service Started'. I cannot find what app is causing it. It sometimes happens when there are no other apps working in the background and appears to be totally random. Is there a trick to see what services are running? I am worried that there is some sort of malware running in the background. 

 

Thank you for your time. 

 

Adam

I can't help with Bixby but turning off the device and user permissions on wuntu appears to have solved the problem of the message all the time!

Hey @bllipp and @Ntale

 

Can you both send a screenshot of this?

 

What network are you both on?

I am on the Three network.

I wish I could take a picture but it's only on the screen for about three seconds- by the time I've selected the screenshot tool it's already gone! It's a grey oval with Service Started in it, that's it.

I have been looking for information on this and on a different thread found this is connected to the wuntu app, I am also on 3 and getting the pop up so this would make sense. No idea how to stop it though!

Hi, I too am on 3 and have been having the exact same notifications. I have been wondering if I've been hacked or something.

 

I have the wuntu app (bit poor in truth) is there any non 3 customers got this? 

 

I've only just noticed the notifications recently (past 4 days) but had the app since getting the phone on launch day.

 

Also I know it's off topic but any news on when we get full bixby?
