Special Containment Procedures: Foundation webcrawler KYU-193 "Open Late" is to monitor online forums and susceptible devices for SCP-XXXX related activity. SCP-XXXX infected devices are to be transported to Site-15 and stored in a standard containment locker. No electronic devices are permitted within a three metre radius of an SCP-XXXX infected device during testing.

Description: SCP-XXXX is an application named "Life Coach" that manifests on Internet-connected smartphones, capable of spreading to devices in close proximity.

Upon being opened, SCP-XXXX will present a screen with two options: "manual" and "auto". If "manual" is selected, the screen will display an text input box and prompt the user to ask a question. When a question is entered, the application will generate a response, typically advisory in nature. Tapping the screen again returns the user to previous menu.

If "auto" is selected, SCP-XXXX will automatically generate text identical in nature to the "manual" option without the need for a button. SCP-XXXX will generate this text in response to any situation the user runs across where advice may be given, regardless of severity. Each message generated is accompanied by an audible buzz.

Testing is underway to determine if SCP-XXXX is viable for use in Foundation operations.

Incident SCP-XXXX-1: Senior Researcher Cameron Zhou made several unauthorised edits to the SCP-XXXX file. Upon investigation, Zhou was found within their residence, holding their smartphone and requesting assistance. The smartphone was later found to contain an instance of SCP-XXXX and was removed from their possession.

Following psychological assessment and treatment, Zhou was administered Class-C amnestics and reassigned to another project. Follow-up testing to verify Zhou's claims commenced on 21/01/2020 under the direction of Dr. Katherine Tindall. As of 07/08/2020, no new anomalous properties have been observed. Re-classification to Thaumiel is pending has been authorised.
