It must be for a reason This can happen when there is an unknown app running on your phone Such apps or an in background mode without notice, so you don’t even have to start them, but they still take away your phone’s energy Number 12 your smartphone seems slower than it used to be We often think slower operation speed is the reason of our phones old age in? Fact just like shorter battery life it can be caused by malware running in the background on your phone those bad apps Transfer data from your phone, so it’s performance drops a lot a smartphone is smart But hackers are sometimes even smarter Number 11 if your phone gets warm Your phone gets warm even when you don’t make a call or work with it You’re probably used to feeling the warm touch of your communication tool, and you might even like it especially when it gets cold But warming up for no reason is not a good sign Again, it means there is an unknown app making your phone work so hard that it warms up Number 10 your phone reboots itself switches off dials numbers or starts applications You might like to believe self rebooting or dialing numbers is the result of paranormal activity and you’re about to call Ghostbusters Sorry to tell you this, but if it’s not a system breakdown that could be tapping Number nine unknown phone numbers appear in your recent calls and it costs you Hackers can proxy through your device to make expensive international phone calls They can also use your infected device to make calls to companies which charge for them Of course they don’t actually call overseas themselves they offer this paid service to their customers, so they get profits Number eight your phone is sending and receiving strange text messages Just like unknown numbers in your recent calls you can find text messages You did not actually send from your phone it can also happen to your email if you are using it from your phone If you don’t notice it yourself Your friends or colleagues might tell you about it when they receive weird messages from you do not ignore it number seven you cannot switch off your device As you are trying to switch your device off it starts opening different apps Increasing delighting and so on it is very wrong and it is most likely not the manufacturers fault Number six there are noises or echoes during calls if you hear noises or echo during calls And you haven’t had them in this location before it means someone else has access to your phone They might be tracking your phone and listening to your conversation this very second number five websites appear different than before in your mobile browser It can be a sign that someone has installed malware on your phone It can be reading your online communication and tracking your activities It’s it’s somewhere between your browser and the internet and stops the sites from displaying normally Number four you noticed an increased use of mobile data If you have a data monitoring app you can sometimes see your mobile data usage growing way too fast It can cost extra charges if you pay for a certain amount of traffic per month And it is one of the signs your phone is not only used by you You can also try finding detailed app traffic usage in your phone settings It tells us exactly how much mobile data each of your apps is using You recently installed that app from a new source, and it is eating your data. Like crazy that app could be malware delete it Number three pop-ups start appearing on your device out of nowhere You probably see it a lot on your computer unless you. Have a good anti-virus software You are informed that you just won the lottery or a new iPhone all you have to do is click one button and it’s yours Such popups on your phone are likely produced by malware. You don’t do what they are telling you to do Number 2 email sent from your phone are blocked by spam filters it can be assigned a third party is reading your emails How if they got control over your phone? It could have changed your email configuration to send all your mails via some unauthorized server Hackers, probably have direct access to that server Number one you can’t make calls or they’re being dropped if you experience calls being dropped the Inability to make calls at times when you appear to have good signal strength or strange noises occurring during your phone conversations Something may be amiss Normally these problems are indicative of technical issues unrelated to a breach, but that is not always the case So if you notice these symptoms shortly after you took some action that you now regret You may wish to consider whether you need to take corrective action What should you do if you see any of these signs on your phone? try running mobile anti-malware software Delete all the apps you have not installed and unreliable apps eating too much traffic If it is possible you can also reset your phone and go back to its original settings if that does not seem enough to you consult a professional We all know prevention is better than cure, so here’s what you can do to protect your phone from being hacked If you receive a message with a link, and you cannot see the full URL never open it If you charge your phone via an unknown computer when connected choose only charging Don’t use the remember passwords function Switch off the automatic connection to public Wi-Fi networks instead choose them manually One more thing about Wi-Fi networks avoid networks with suspicious names such as free internet or Wi-Fi free Choose those which are protected with a password Especially if you are somewhere like a cafe Don’t make online purchases or fund transfers on public Wi-Fi networks if you use Android install a reliable antivirus program and Of course add a password to your phone We hope you found this video useful if it is give it a thumbs up keep your phone safe now You know how to do it Subscribe to our channel not to miss any updates always stay on the bright side of life
