    The only safe way to remove any malware on android is reset to factory settings

    There are loads of antiviruses / antimalware programs for android.
    Several listed on https://www.techradar.com/uk/news/the-best-antivirus-for-android-in-2018
    Most offer a free limited, basic functionality with a paid for full service
    My personal choice for best security & protection would be either Kaspersky or Eset

    You can find many antiviruses on the market. The best ones are usually tagged by Google as their best choice. So it's easy to find one.

    Not good advice
    All the Google best choice tag means is the highest paying advertiser, often the scummiest & worse product on the market

    Really? Haven't seen it be like that. I used some stuff that is marked as the Google choice and it was always good.
