    It doesn't go away if you reset the phone?

    Unfortunately, many cheap phones (especially those from China) come with deeply-embedded, pre-installed, hard-to-remove malware.

    At your own risk, some possible strategies are mentioned here.

    There is also free, one-on-one assistance with Android malware removal via email at the Malwarebytes help desk.
