Avast detected a trojan in my Settings app. Is this a false positive?

Hey, all. Avast detected a trojan within my Settings application. It says, "Trojan detected - Android:SMForw-Al [Trj]." I can't, and probably don't want to, delete my settings app, which it keeps on prompting me to do.

What should I do?

Just ignore it, it better for you, to simply follow good security practices:

Carefully check app permissions before installing

Be careful about granting root privileges

Keep your phone up to date (preferably running the latest android version)

Don't install apps from outside the play store (or at least be careful)

Thanks

RE: avast! Free Mobile Security App

Unable to remove the all malware?

Avast antivirus is a good software, it remove all the malware but sometimes my phone is affected by some malware. Today scan my phone with avast but I am feeling my phone doesn’t work properly.

After scanning my phone, its sms and call filter is not working. And it is also not blocking unknown calls.

I had tried all the possibilities but not working at all.Currently i am using Samsung s duos.

I am sure it’s a malware problem. Please help me…

Scanning is too slow on Avast antivirus app!!

I’ve installed it on my Galaxy S4 last month and it working well but now a days it’s scanning is too slow. No doubt it’s very good antivirus app according to my experience, it find and remove the malware easily. I have had a full scan my galaxy s4 and it’s take time to scanning around 65 minutes and still the bar showing that only 6% of the scan .

I am unable to understand why is scanning too slowly??
