MacBook Pro

DataQuest

I am having a problem with my 2018 MacBook PRO. On opening from sleep or starting up a window opens asking: "DataQuest requests permission to connect to the net". I have always denied permission but it persists. I have looked at running processes in activity monitor and found 2 entries running:

DataQuest and DataQuest DAMEON, both owned by root. I have tried force quitting the processes but they also instantly reappear.

My questions are:

—What is it? What is its function?

—How do I get rid of it in the event that it is malevolent ?

Thanks for any insights,
