Thread: How can I find out if my cellphone has been hacked?

  1. #1

    Default How can I find out if my cellphone has been hacked?

    An elderly relative of mine has called me and told me that my cellphone has been hacked and that someone is listening to my calls, he refuses to say more even if i call from my wife's phone. This is quite strange. Usually i would write it off as a misinterpreted news report or such, but im involved in a legal situation at the moment where there is another party involved that has clear motive for obtaining personal conversations of mine. How do i find out if they may have access to my cellphone conversations?

    Haha. He is definitely not trolling. Im being dead serious though. There must definitely be some way to track someone's calls. The people whom i suspect are responsible could have had physical access to my phone. Now that i think of it i should probably have posted in the android section? How do i get the thread to be moved?

    It's not impossible to intercept cellular comms if you know the right people.

    Your SP can check.
    If your screen comes on without interaction, it could point to malware.

    Unfortunately that type of software can be easily bought and in some instances it is free parental control software. Swapping sim cards will not help. The os must be replaced afik.

    Not impossible, but not something that people will do for random lawsuits, unless you're talking multiple million payouts.

    There is software that can spy on your phone but it needs to be physically installed on your phone so who ever want to spy on you needs to get access to your phone IFAK this software cant be remotely installed,.
    You cannot detect the software once installed.

    As I understand it can be remotely done. The user must accept it though., images or apps.

    Not sure. I had a lady that complained that her ex was posting on FB using her details although she changed passwords, created new email accounts, etc.
    She mentioned that he knew details that she discussed on the cell phone. Shechanged sim cards and numbers several times.
    She asked me to check her laptop.

    At first I thought she was a bit paranoid, but did find key loggers on her laptop and pc.

    She took her cellphone to her SP and apparently they did find spyware that can use the cell as a listening device, listen to calls, use the camera and GPS.

    I did Google a bit and saw reports that mentioned that the software can be installed remotely. Apparently on BB's you can search for the presence of 2 files, but on Androids it is not easy to pick up.

    Apparently the ex eventually admitted that he had her cellphones bugged. He had someone from Johannesburg do it. Apparently remotely.

    I can't vouch for that info obviously.
