    I was browsing my iPhone 8 (iOS 12) and found something pretty disturbing
    in Settings-ScreenTime-Always allowed
    In the non allowed section Choose Apps
    there is an app that is a very long number (more than 24 number and ends with dots because there is no more space)
    86364341AA3E4....
    The icon is blank, non identifiable
    I have it on another old iPhone as well but I cannot understand what it is, how can I get rid off
    I have an iPad but there, thanks goodness , doesn't exist
    If I go to check among my apps it doesn't show up

    Thanks to anyone who could help me to understand and eliminate the intruder!

    By chance do you have any unrecognized profiles installed under Settings > General > Profiles?

    thanks to you as well.
    I tried today to compare all my apps on the iPhone and the one that are not allowed but couldn't find any not listed already
    I took several screen shots on both lists and compared them all on my computer.
    It's not a visibile app but I figured it out:cool:
    I tried to save a Safari page as “Add to Home Screen” and there I got another weird number, deleted and the second weird number is gone. Now the hunt is open to find the other page;)

    Thanks for doing the detective work. I have 3 of those and will now know where to begin checking on mine.
