    When I click on my phone icon and go to Groups I found something under iCloud that I don't recognize. It says all iCloud and then underneath that it has another group labeled as Hoover's. Now I'm freaked out that my phone might have gotten hacked?

    You don't recognize the name Hoover? Do any of your email accounts have that name tied to them?

    Never heard of it. Need to know how to remove it too.

    Go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars and select each account one at time. First toggle off the calendar check to see if it disappears in the calendar app. If that doesn't work, delete the account.

    Delete all of your email accounts from the phone and reboot. Check the Calendar app after that and add the accounts back in.

    Okay, I'd reset all settings in the Settings app. Be sure to check the calendar app afterwards. It will take less than ten minutes to set your phone back up (set wallpaper, ringtones, WiFi passwords, etc.), and you want to make sure it's gone before inputting all of this stuff.

    I'm not sure how it got there, but it sounds like the name of an email account. Mine showed my Gmail account under "other" before I disabled it in settings.

    It was a long time ago, but I think I just toggled it off like I showed in my second post in this thread.
