With everything firmly manifested in the digital age the next logical step in our security seems to be encryption. How can we protect our private information, whether it be texts, phone calls, and/or emails, from potential hackers or big agencies? With everything now on the internet being easily accessible to everyone, what are some ways that we can protect ourselves and also ensure that we are not being spied on?
Whereas before we used to protect our laptops and computers, nowadays it is about protecting that little computer that sits in our pocket.
Here are six clear signs that your phone has been hacked and some ways to prevent it from happening.
Before we move on to the obvious signs that a phone has been hacked, we must first touch on ways and methods that your phone could be potentially hacked.
The first and probably easiest way is for a hacker to manually take your phone and install spy apps. The second (and probably just as easy) way is using an unprotected Wi-Fi network such as those in a cafe or an airport.
Because it is a public Wi-Fi that is open to all people, everyone around you can share or potentially see all of your traffic.
A lesser known way of charging your phone is via a foreign USB. If you plug or charge your phone with an unknown USB there could be a risk that your information is transferred and/or revealed.
