• Obvious signs that your mobile hacked
Your smartphone - a small computer connected to the Internet. It is very convenient, but there is the same risk of malware infection, like a full-fledged PC. Hackers do not usually tell their victims that they were victims - gaining access to devices and the information they crank up their dirty work, leaving a minimum of traces. Because of this they will be able to come to you again, to see what else you can profit.
You can not guess what your smart phone hacked. But there is no crime without any evidence at all, and there are several signs by which one can determine that there is something wrong.
The smartphone suddenly began to rapidly discharge. Possible cause - start your application uncontrolled. Spyware "locked" so that you can act as a secretive, but without food they can not do.
The device is not heated during a conversation or other use, and in passive mode - another sign that runs some program, consuming resources.
Smartphone without your teams off, reboots, dials or launches applications. Often it is not the operating system crashes, but a sign of tampering.
The opposite situation: you can not shut down the smartphone. Instead of stopping it opens up various applications, including lighting and the like.
In the call log were unknown numbers. Or you get an SMS message from a friend of the subscriber, but it looks strange - for example, start with a meaningless set of letters or symbols, such as squares. Most likely, the message is sent to the hacker. You open the message - and your smartphone itself will load the virus program. Where the attacker knows your number? Perhaps he has already hacked your friend's smartphone and uses its list of contacts.
When a telephone conversation is impaired or echo. Or you may call and then "put up". It is not always caused by malfunctions in the operator's network: it is possible that someone is actively trying to get into your smartphone.
