• Hi Player did you try emptying out your cache to maybe stop it from happening


  • @player_one We've checked and are unable to locate any such malware or activity in our code base. If you continue to see such activity we recommend that you contact Google Play Store directly and share the information you have with them. They will be able to investigate better and provide you or us with additional information that may lead to the source. We would be more than happy to fix if it is from our end indeed.


  • @betterlate1 I did, but I've a feeling it had stopped this behaviour earlier. I'll investigate later when I can get to my other phone and will get back to you. But thanks for your input.


  • @lexulous Could you confirm for me if it is more likely that the packets identified are being pulled from my device or pushed?


  • @player_one our engineers would need access to your vpn logs and your device to test. At this stage you should contact Google Play Store with your findings in detail. They should have more information.


  • @betterlate1 Yeah sadly it's still happening. Don't know how to attach a screenshot into the forum, but I've just seen another 2 porn sites appear. But clearing the cache was worth a shot, cheers.


  • @lexulous I have reported it to Google Play store, but sadly not had a reply so not sure what else we can do. Uninstalling seems severe, but there's clearly something going wrong somewhere.
    It's happening via mobile data and wireless, to 3 devices, so not likely a 'man in the middle' injection and it happens despite the version being run.
    Clearing the cache didn't do anything.
    Do you have a log of traffic between my devices and the lexulous servers?


  • @player_one we do not have such logs. Our team tested from VPNs in different countries and could not replicate this. Sorry we cannot be of further help in this matter. If you have doubts the prudent step would be to uninstall.

  • @player_one sorry


  • @Pangloss Typical man, unable to see thing right in front of him.... Who knew the button bar at the top was a sliding bar!! 😖
    Cheers @Pangloss


  • @betterlate1 No worries, we'll get there... Just need to find someone else with tech ability to install a VPN...
    Cheers for your input though.


  • @player_one Here's an example of the sites contacted.

  • @player_one These screenshots are not helpful to anyone. They also do not show how the sites are linked with the Lexulous app. Once again requesting you to take your complaint to Google so that you may get the proper resolution.


  • @lexulous I respectfully disagree. They are helpful in several ways. Firstly they prove that there is communication between the app and the websites. They also demonstrate the quantity of communications made (this may be the cause of the level of data used). It also serves to show others what is happening in case they themselves wish to check to see if this is also happening on their devices.


  • @player_one How do you determine it is from the Lexulous app from the screenshot?


  • @player_one Based only on your message we have investigated and did not find any problems in the Lexulous code that would connect to websites that you mention.

    Please note that there are a lot of different aspects which may cause such issues including whether your devices & networks are compromised, source of installing the apps, behaviour of other apps on your device etc.

    We have also recommended that you write directly to Google Play Store support so that they may investigate it with you and figure out the problem. If they are not responding, please get in touch with them again. They have data from across all devices to help you resolve this. In any case they monitor applications for malicious activity & automatically flag them.

    As of now it is a wild goose chase for us & other users.

    This topic stands closed until we get information from Google about such activity linked to Lexulous.


  • Good afternoon.

    I have recently discovered that a huge amount of data is being used by this app and wanted to find out if other users have also experienced the same issue.


  • As I'm not satisfied with the way my issue has been dropped and the way in which my desire to investigate it has been silenced (both posts are now locked), could I request a link to the T&C's of the forum please.


  • Have to ask..this is a new site, they have a lot to work on..why am I getting the impression you want them to drop everything and figure out your situation..maybe it is me, but I would suggest patience is a better idea than arguing
