Weird Analytics result

I'm using Google Analytics to track my iOS application.
Yesterday I get sessions from 6 different countries and OS (Windows, Mac, Android instead of only iOS) in my analytics, when only I have app installed.
Is it possible that someone use same Track ID as I?

Hi Vadym,

It can be spam, spammers are sending fake hits directly to Google Analytics using the measurement protocol to random UA IDs. If you are just starting to track a site or an app it's a good practice to use a -2 property, most of the spam hits the -1 property.

Hope this helps.
