If your Phone is Hacked…
We get calls all the time from concerned clients wondering if their Cell Phone is Hacked? As with any form of hacking, there are certain indicators that can tell you if your cell phone is hacked or not. Prior to having a private investigator run digital forensics on your phone, take a few minutes to review these Indicators to tell if Your Phone is Hacked:
Strange Text Messages:
Texts appearing in the form of strange characters or squares can be hackers attempting to access your device. Also, on a Phone or Tablet, the text only has to be received by the device, the user does not have to take any action in order for the program to download into your device.
Decline in Battery life:
If your battery drains quicker than it used to, it could be a sign intrusion or of unauthorized activity taking place which could be a sign that your phone is hacked!
Increased Data Usage:
A very common sign that your phone is hacked or has spyware on it is the fact that it usually doubles the amount of usage of your service. This is due to it “Phoning Out” your data to another source.
Strange Activity on your Phone or Tablet:
This can consist of something as simple as your light going on and off without you touching it, or it could be the operation of apps or other programs that appear to be taking place “automatically”.
Disruptions in Service:
Dropped calls or loss of signal are signs that are often blamed on your service provider. However, if your carrier can not explain the disruption of service, they are often key indicators that your Cell Phone is Hacked.
