Selfie video camera starts when different app is chosen.

0 votes

This morning my Android tablet started opening the video camera app whenever I tried to open Facebook. I don't know why it started doing this. I was unable to access Facebook until I went to app store and updated the facebook app. Could this have been some sort of virus?

Yes, this could be a virus installed on your tablet. However, if the error was fixed by updating the Facebook application, then it should also be considered as a bug in the application's code that triggered the camera automatically. To check the tablet for infections, simply install a virus solution from the Play Store. You can use Bitdefender, for example.
