    I understand that but what is this other file that says SPYWARE? it wasn't there before. Is it anything to be concerned about? Should I uninstall whatever apps is tencent?

    no need to get rude. if you don't know anything about my question then please allow someone to reply that does. I'm simply asking is if safe to just ignore thiis or should I delete the app. As for when I installed the app those files weren't present! so those files were added without my knowledge by said app.

    I figured out what this was now.... OnePlus had me to get device log files for a system bug I was experiencing. That made the tencent folder and files. [e]1f44d[/e]

    Nope. That won't create these folders.
    I have given lots of bug reports and logs and never had it create this folder.

    If you say so sir! I have recreated it the exact same way four times now to be sure. So I'm 💯 positive this is what's creating said files.

    Do one thing, install fx file manager. It attaches the icon of every every app against the folder it creates. Take a screenshot and send.

    look I have other things to do than argue with you about this. I know for a fact what created those files. if you don't want to believe that then it's on you.

    Well, then move on to those other things that you have to do.
