So like almost everyday i scan my phone with the build in Device Security.
But now it tells me Stream Theater is a virus of some sort, but it's not, and it's irritating me.
Can someone please explain me how i can manually allow the app, so when i do scan, it won't come up again.

This is not a threat specific to Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, so there is no threat in Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.

Rather the threat is from the app itself, if it is indeed a threat, it will be present in any Android phone that install Stream Theater so it is a threat for all Android phones and not just Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.

You can either remove the malware or wait for Stream Theater cleans up its act.

Thanks for the reply, i do wish we had an option to tell the phone the app is safe to use, like windows defender, it scans, it finds a threat and it'll ask you, remove or mark as safe, something like that.

Norton Mobile Security will do what you describe above, it is free to use for a month.
