My logs recently showed the following user-agent:

samsung-gt-s5620 UNTRUSTED/1.0

Why would a user-agent have untrusted in caps in its name?


Possibly because the phone considers the browser an untrusted application.

    This appears to be the case. According to this UNTRUSTED is "Added by MIDP whenever an application is not signed" (where MIDP = Mobile Information Device Profile, I believe) – jacobq Mar 5 '14 at 22:59

The User-Agent is a HTTP header sent by browsers. Thus, everything can be put in it. It is a decision made by the browser manufacturer.
