    Did you have "ShareIt" installed prior?

    Sorry but it's seems 'Share Karo' is alternative, and user should install it. It's against privacy to install 'Share Karo' without user initiation.

    Nobody from OnePlus installed it without your permission. It is one of your apps which did it.

    Yep, I understand it. Is there anything I can do. Bcoz this app has been installed 5-6 times on my phone automatically and I am really scared.
    Knowing the app is from MX Player group, I immediately Forced Stop the MX Player, and I am awaiting if it's MX Player behind this issue.

    Turn off "install unknown apps" permission for MX Player.

    It didn't asked for that permission either. Share Karo is installed from my Play Store. It seems MX player is initiating Installation of app from my Play Store
