Some OnePlus devices, if not all, come preinstalled with an application named EngineerMode that can be used to root the device and may be converted into a fully-fledged backdoor by clever attackers...
If the app is installed on their device, they should visit their phone's Apps section and remove it. Some users have also found the EngineerMode app in phones manufactured by Motorola, Xiaomi, and Lenovo.
