Day by day, Smartphones and mobile devices are evolving, making our personal information vulnerable to intrusion, such as bank details, private messages, calls, emails, personal account details, social media and many more. So you have these signs that may indicate that your smartphone is hacked.
The Smartphone is working slowly
If the performance of the Smartphone is slower than normal, it may be due to malicious software, causing the Smartphone to slow down. This type of virus can affect the performance of the device. This malicious program can be a spyware program that pulls your data and files to another device Which affects the work of the main processing unit that will slow the operation of the device.
The Smartphone suffers from running out of battery charge quickly
If you start to notice that your battery needs to charge frequently at short intervals, it’s usually something that works in the background on your device.
In the worst case, it’s because you’ve downloaded a kind of malware that runs in the background and slows down everything. That’s not good, since – depending on the type of malware – you may become a victim of a breakthrough for identity theft or hijacking your files.
Increase the consumption of the active Internet package on your Smartphone
Another thing to keep in mind is your use of data. If you notice that Internet data usage has increased or exceeded the custom data packet limit, your Smartphone may have been compromised by some types of malware. The increase in data usage may indicate that there is one It transfers data from your device to another device.
And then delete any new applications you have downloaded and if you continue to do a reset of the Smartphone.
High temperature of the Smartphone
If you notice that the device is too hot this is a bad signal, this may be due to running a malicious application in the background, which is a pressure on the CPU.
The most versatile and successful hacker’s tool is phishing, the way someone pretends to be a trusted person or a company to access your personal information.
This method is often represented in the form of e-mail messages, and may be difficult to detect, but there are key indicators that reveal that you are a victim of a scam:
Spell errors, grammatical errors, excessive punctuation, such as exclamation points. Informal e-mail addresses are also fraudulent because banks and airlines try to be as formal and transparent as possible and use official, established email addresses on their domain names.
Embedded models, foreign attachments, and alternate website links are also suspicious, so ignoring these suspicious emails is a good step to prevent them from achieving their goal.
Use of public Wi-Fi networks
One of the easiest ways for hackers to penetrate your Smartphone and access your personal information is to use the public Wi-Fi networks to connect to the Internet.
Hackers use different techniques to access your sensitive data while connecting to a public unencrypted Wi-Fi network. They can provide you with a fake site that asks you to enter your data. This may be compelling and difficult to detect. We recommend that you do not use mobile banking or shopping while using Wi Fei general.
Always remember to sign out then disconnect from the public Wi-Fi network because if you leave without doing so, an intruder can follow your web session on the site you used, such as Facebook or your e-mail, and can do so via cookies and HTTP packages , So always remember to log out.
Bluetooth is on, even though you have not turned it on
Bluetooth can allow hackers to access your Smartphone without even touching it. This type of piracy can pass unnoticed by the user. It can also infect other devices surrounding you if connected with them via Bluetooth.
Turn off Bluetooth and be aware of any suspicious downloads or URL links in text, e-mail, and messaging services such as Facebook, which can disrupt and harm your Smartphone.
If you notice that Bluetooth is turned on and you have not turned it on, turn it off and run the Smartphone scan until you reach and eliminate the malicious files that are doing this.
