Not sure if this a rouge app issue or Samsung bloatware

    My wife uses a GS6 Active and the other day she said when she hooks the phone up to a charger the lockscreen changes. It looks like some kind of lockscreen replacement app, I went through and removed any questionable looking apps it messed with it a few minutes and it wasnt appearing. Last night she tells me it showed back up. Has anyone seen anything similar to this on their Samsung?

    Uh no, I can't say I have ever seen anything like that on my S7/S7 Edge on Marshmallow or my S8+ on Nougat. Did she download a theme that changes lock screen wallpapers? I've seen those on the Samsung theme store but they eat up more storage space than I want to give to themes so I avoid them. So I can't say for sure what they do or if that fits what you're seeing.

    Try changing her theme to the default and see if that changes the behavior.

    Photos would help. I do know Samsung had Trip Advisor pre-installed in previous phones. Maybe that's activated.
