Special Containment Procedures: Foundation webcrawler KYU-193 "Open Late" is to monitor online forums and susceptible devices for SCP-4527 related activity. SCP-4527 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-4527 infected device during testing.

Description: SCP-4527 is an application named "Life Coach" that manifests on Internet-connected smartphones, capable of spreading to devices in close proximity.

Upon being opened, SCP-4527 will present a screen with two options: "manual" and "auto". If "manual" is selected, the screen will display a 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-4527 will automatically generate text identical in nature to the "manual" option without the need for a button. SCP-4527 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-4527 is viable for use in Foundation operations.

Incident SCP-4527-1: Senior Researcher Cameron Zhou made several unauthorised edits to the SCP-4527 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-4527 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.
