Hi. Today I installed a 4.1 rated app called Screen Stream Mirroring Free on my Nokia 5 running Oreo 8.1. This junk of an app simply freezed and didn't allow me to do anything, even to restart or turn off the phone (the "perks" of having a non-replaceable battery). It stayed like an overlay over anything except the thin Android top bar. When I connected the phone to my PC running W10, it detected the phone but not the internal storage, perhaps because that USB confirmation dialog was obscured by this app. I had to go to a GSM service who thankfully "rescued" the phone with no data loss.
How should I handle these situations in the future because GSM service is not free? Which software to use to get rid of the malicious apps or even to do a factory reset/resofting? I do daily backup and my data is on a micro SD, so it's not a tragedy if I do a factory reset.
