  • bloatware: It becomes bloatware means an inbuilt app like message, settings so you can’t uninstall simply even you can’t remove by resettings your phone. literally all

Some Other problems

  • Some apps are automatically downloaded and installed.
  • Mystery gift icon appeared on the screen and when you click on this gift a link will open.
  • Unwanted notification like this screenshot.unwanted notification from alarn controller

Here I am posting for both root and without rooted devices with root you can completely uninstall it but if you don’t want to root your phone don’t you can bypass problems from this app.

How to uninstall any virus

Here I am posting removing methods with and without root but if you want to remove this completely then I will suggest you to rooted device method although you can control it in a unrooted device but can’t uninstall it.

For rooted devices

  1. First of all Root your phone.
  2. Install any bloatware removing app like System app safe remover app (link provided)

What is root: Android is operating system in which you have the ability to can change anything in your phone but by default these features are blocked by manufacturer. Process of unblocking these features is known as root

Rooting your phone means you can change anything in your android device like expanding ram, remove ads of apps, Can remove bloatware but on rooting the phone, it will void your warranty but don’t worry you can unroot your phone after deleting this virus from your phone.

  1. How to root your phone: Currently there is no app which can root all devices. Rooting process of different is different so search on google how to root your phone model (go to settings→about phone)
  2. Last step:  Now install System app safe Remover from play store which is made for removing system apps, moving any app to SD card etc and open it on opening it there will a pop up open from SuperSu asking about root permission to give root permission click on grant (you can’t use this app without root permission)popup notification by suptersu

Select this virus and click on uninstall button when you uninstall any app it moves in recycle bin so uninstall from recycle bin too. You are confusing what is the name of this virus. I find many names of this virus given the blow

  • Alarm controller
  • Battery controller
  • Smsmanager
  • Proxyservics
  • wallpapaerservics
  • .com.system.update
  • system certificate
  • music provider
  • net alpha
  •  demo

unisntall ghost push

How to Stop reinstalling proxyserver, smsmanager, etc

some user complains that alarm controller, battery controller is automatic reinstalling because there is an app settings provider delete it too.

 Remove without root

If you do not want to root your phone for any reason then you can restrict data of malware. To restrict unwanted materials from this virus go settings→data usage and scroll down and disable data for the virus which you have. But I will prefer you to uninstall it completely by rooting your phone. If by default your smartphone don’t have restrict data feature then use any firewall app like Noroot firewall.

Note: I have received many complaints this method is not working. so you have to root your phone.

If your phone have that kind of problem but this virus has the different name then please tell the latest name of this virus so I can provide better results for the user because all of the users searches on the internet How to remove smsmanager/alarm controller etc. Comment or use this contact form to tell the latest name.

  4. I rooted through kingroot but malware bytes detected it as malware.
    What to do?
    Money plant, dataUsageLockScreenClient, omacp, one time Init….are all these viruses too?

    1. Uninstall malware for some time use kingoroot do your work then unroot your phone and install malware bytes again

      1. DO NOT ROOT THE PHONE. It is a very stupid idea to even expose an infected device to administrator rights. Since it is running as a standard user, it is unlikely it could modify system files. So try a factory reset.

        1. In my case, I tried factory reset but it did not work because it is bloatware. Looks like you did not root your phone I rooted my phone couple times for a specific task nothing happen but I deleted virus by rooting my phone

          1. You’re lucky it’s just bloatware, and isn’t something very malicious. If you ever come across something very nasty, always format using TWRP and flash the default ROM. This is the only way to ensure it is disappeared.

          2. Also, bloatware isn’t really ‘malware’… it is just unwanted software given by the manufacturer…

  5. thank sir for this…. i try it later,, my problem is my WiFi is always on,even if you switch it off and it download apps w/o my permission, i don’t know what virus it is,, plz help me… thank

      1. Download a terminal shell. Then issue the following commands :
        ps -a (shows all running processes, take note of the Process ID)

        netstat -ano (shows all inbound and outbound connections, the remote IP address IN NUMERICAL FORMAT the socket is connected to, and the Process ID ….once again, take note of the Process ID)

        If you want to display the domain name instead of the IP address, simply omit the -n option

        whois [IP address OR domain name]

        1. whois command will show you details about the remote computer your PC is connected to…look at the ISP most importantly

Nothing from google works. Neither YouTube, nor Gmail..not even PlayStore. How can I solve this problem? Please help
    Thank You

  9. my phone redirects me to start typing to Google, touches itself on screen,takes long to charge, restarts it itself, what can I do?

      1. Viruses can still function without an internet connection… you are confusing virus with remote access trojan.

  10. Thanks for your precious article Harinderpreet,
    Really, your technique to remove viruses has helped me to remove viruses from my phone. While following these techniques faced some issue but at last I removed viruses from my phone.
    Thank You dear please post this kind of article which help us to protect our phone from malware and viruses.

  11. Thanks for providing such nice information to us. It provides such amazing information on care as wellHealth. The post is really helpful and very much thanks to you. The information can be really helpful on health, care as well as on examhelp tips. The post is really helpful.

  12. Sir can I root my mob without paying as I download oneclick root its asked me pay about 70 dollar.
    Any free software for rooting please

  13. Root it?? Seriously??? Thats the stupidest thing ever. The phone is safer under “normal” user, as the virus cannot gain administrator privileges. The moment you root it, THE VIRUS CAN GAIN ADMIN PRIVILEGES AND DO ANYTHING IT WANTS. As of now you are safe, as it can only mess with your system data. But just to make sure its gone.
    Now before you do anything, make sure your phone’s bootloader is unlocked. If so, you can root it and immediately install a custom recovery software, like TWRP. Then reformat EVERYTHING, and flash the stock firmware.
    If you have locked bootloader, DONT install TWRP. Just flash the default firmware onto it.

    1. Sorry, what I meant to say was… it can only access and manipulate your user data. The system data is fine.

      1. After you root, IMMEDIATELY install TWRP. DO NOT ROOT IT AND DO NOTHING, as you will give the virus enough time to do whatever it wants under root.

      1. Rooting doesn’t invite, but if its a trojan, it can attach to a program that accesses administrator rights, and then screw you. Then finish.

          1. The hacker can easily gain su permissions once he compromises an app.You really have no clue what you’re talking about.

          2. Also, who said malware only comes in the form of apps? I had a scenario where a malicious executable came embedded to an image file (.jpg).
