    Hopefully, this is not hacked, probably the internet/ mobile data is on and some background data/ app(s) might downloaded (assuming android based). If you think this app is not for your use, you can delete it from application menu. Now put off the service of mobile data/ internet and see what happens.

    What kind of apps are being downloaded with out your doing? IT may be you downloaded an app that was infected and is allowing other apps to install. You need to be very careful when downloading apps. Look at the permissions it's asking for before you hit accept. If they look fishy do not use the app. Example is why does an app need my contacts. photos or other personal info accessible to them for me to play their game? You can try an antivirus program like AVG for mobile, it's free in the app store.

    Basically Android is based on Linux, and as far as my knowledge, yhis is not necessary to install an external anti virus/optimizer tool for Android based mobiles. They have enough built-in protection, that can protect itself without help of so called external tools. This was my experience, when I faced trouble with my Android based mobile.
