Today when I opened Camara app it was showing black screen and after some time it was showing msg camra is being used by some other app, ease close that app. I checked my recent apps and found there was no app which had camra access. I want to noe that is it normal or some is trying to spy me? For reference I have attached screenshot. Or some app is stealing data in back ground..


  • Hi, we'd request you follow the below steps:

    1. Check your phone for latest software version.

    2. Go to Camera settings Clear cache & storage of Camera App after backing up & disable/re-enable camera App

    3. Try the same under safe mode:

    Hold the power button for 5 seconds => When the screen flashes with option => Press & hold power option => You will get an option to restart in safe mode

    4. If still you face the issue factory reset your phone after taking a full backup:
