Also if I take out my sim card and turn off Wi-Fi, I will get a long list of IP addresses trying to get into my phone. Well it use to I haven't tried it since installing your antivirus. But I am going to try it right now will post the results.

This is with the sim card in.
Next one is without a sim card and no Wi-Fi.

-I'm not a Trend Micro representative, but I like to give you some suggestion-

Can you try to disable it from App Management screen, and check if connections stops?
Did you installed a VPN software?

Hi rougetin007,

Thank you for posting your concern here.

Upon checking on your concern, the "nobody" application that you are informing is a possible system application. This system application is required by your mobile device to function properly. As you can notice on your screenshot it has an android logo on its side, that means it is a possible system application along side other applications tagged with red labels with it.

Going on to your next concern about the long list of IP addresses with or without the SIM card inserted, this is natural. As you can notice with the SIM card inserted, your LTE or data connection is active, your mobile applications including the Android operating system tries to check and download updates for them. Analyzing the nature of your application "Protwall", it seems that it is an app for creating a VPN firewall so it is natural for it to display outgoing and ingoing data transfers.

We hope this helps in answering your concern.

If you have further inquiries, please do not hesitate to post it here.

Thank you and have a great week! :)
