What Is CQATest App?
CQA stands for certified quality auditor and its name explains what it is meant to do. This app was developed to provide a report and monitor the performance of many apps and widgets on your phone. While most mobile phone users might not need it in their phone’s lifetime, in most cases it is pre-installed in your device and is not shown in the app drawer. If all of a sudden the CQATest App appears on your screen, it means that the app is gathering some data it deems useful. Other than this, the app also checks for glitches, abnormal graphics, and viruses within your mobile phone. CQATest App notifies you if it finds any abnormality in your device.
What Does The CQATest App Do?
As we mentioned above the CQATest App sends various reports to your mobile phone manufacturers and then installs the required updates or fixes the broken software files so that your mobile phone can work smoothly and without any problem.
In simple words, the app runs in the background and deals with software problems in real time without being displayed on the running apps tab. If your phone is having some problem, it fixes it automatically with the help of the manufacturer. All you have to do after this is to reboot your device. Have you ever experienced that whenever you have some glitch in your mobile phone, that glitch or problem is gone once you reboot your device? This happens because the CQATest App has just dealt with the problem and in order to implement the changes, you had to reboot it.
How Is The CQATest App Pre-Installed On Your Device?
In most cases, CQATest App comes pre-installed on your device from the manufacturer but it’s hidden in a way that you mostly can’t access it. You cannot find the app in your app drawer but you can find it in your system apps section. It is merely a diagnosis app that is used even less often than other system apps.
Is It Safe To Use The CQATest App?
CQATest App is a safe app and does not have any harmful effects on your smartphone. Keeping the app will allow the phone manufacturer to access important details about the software and hardware of the phone. The details do not comprise your personal data but rather the phone-related data like the Smartphone model, UI version, Android version and more. Still, if you have a problem with an app accessing your information, you can always switch from Android to iPhone.
Frequent Problems Faced By CQATest App Users
Although the app is deemed safe, there are still some problems that you might have to face during App usage. These problems include:
- Your mobile phone’s home button might not work properly if the CQATest App is still open.
- The display of the phone has started acting weird.
- Some applications might not be able to work properly.
- CQATest App can drain your device’s battery faster than usual.
- The app can also cause excessive heat.
