Chinese handset maker and networking company Huawei is reportedly installing a third-party application named GoPro Quik on some devices without notifying the users or asking for consent. A number of Huawei users have reported their phones have suddenly been equipped with GoPro's Quik video editing app, Android Planet reported late on Friday.

"The installation is the result of an internal error," a spokesperson for Huawei Netherlands was quoted as saying. The company has apologised and said its developers are looking into the matter. Its representatives have suggested affected users to reset the Quik application to the factory version and then uninstall it.
