Hope this helps and please let me know what happens. After installing the Anti spy app you recommended Anti spy mobile free it returned 3 warnings on scanning: Please interpret this, and let me know which ones should be uninstalled? Hi Joddy, Welcome back! Let me look into it and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
I think you mean Palmchat, not Palmchart. I would uninstall this immediately! Get rid of it or you WILL have problems! Kind of scary if you think about it, right?
What is your suggestion for junk cleanup. My phone has been glitchy going to black screen and not wanting to reboot ect. What do you recommend? The apps they have such as task killers, ram optimisers, battery doctors are not only unnecessary on Android but actively counter-productive. I would not install anything from that outfit. What kind of phone do you have?
How to tell if someone is spying or tracking my Android phone
Guessing above apps are virus: I have done factory reset but still i am facing issues like:: Hi There, If the tab is not rooted, you could turn off WiFi and perform a factory reset. Unless the tab came with that stuff on it from the factory, then a reset should get rid of it. IF, however, the tab is rooted, then my guess is it will need a complete reflash of the factory firmware.
I think that it came rooted with this stuff installed and even if there was firmware to reinstall it might actually have the malware cooked into it. My recommendation is to replace it. Hi Moon, If you get a new phone that one will be clean as a whistle.
2. Battery Drain
After an injury and mountains of medical bills, I now have a bill collector who I believe has somehow gained access to my cell phone contact list and maybe tracking my whereabouts. I do not know how to check an app drawer or file list for dates of possible spyware downloads. Here is what happened: The people that were sent these messages have no connection to me besides being in my contact list.
One of the individuals was a male friend I had just met 3 weeks prior and had no other communication with him besides a few text messages. What can I do? How can I figure out how this happened? I cancelled my gmail account from my phone. Hi There, How unfortunate to hear about your injury and the mountain of bills. I hope you are feeling better. When you unlock your phone, there should be an icon that says Apps. Tap on that and you should see all of the icons that all installed on your phone. Perform a factory reset and that should wipe your phone clean and that includes any spyware that was installed.
Before you do this remember to backup all of you data. Did you try using the Anit-Spyware app that was included in the article? I have recently had a small white dim light appear in my upper left hand corner of screen or three small dim white lights in a row across the bottom of screen where menu buttons usually are.
Also when light appears in my upper left hand corner there is no notifications verifying it could you please help. Hi Alex, Have you used the anti-Spy app to see what results in gives you? It could also have nothing to do with spying, has your phone experienced any damage, from a drop maybe?
I had the suspicion my ex was spying on me because he would make comments that I would say on my phone conversations. And when I was making phone calls the wiretap app warned me of hangouts activated another call. I was so paranoid that I lost all of my pics and videos, and just did a factory reset and changed all my passwords. Please help…and thank you for all your helpful answer. Hi Mvy, How unfortunate to hear about what you are going through. You did well in doing a factory reset since that eliminated any apps that may have been downloaded to your phone.
I hope this helps. Thanks for commenting and reading. Sorry to hear about your situation. The only way that can happen is if your ex somehow gets hold of your smartphone and installed the software. Hope this helps and if you are the US, you can report this to the cyber crime division easily. Thanks for another fantastic article. The place else may just anyone get that type of information in such an ideal method of writing?
I have a presentation next week, and I am at the look for such information. Hi Cecila, You are most welcome for the information and I am glad that you liked it. What do you think? Hi Crysta, I have never seen a pop-up of Google telling me that I have a damaged battery. Are you asked to give any personal information in that pop-up? Scams usually look for that, they try to get you to introduce your information. Have you considered a reset to clear any spyware?

I am a stay at home wife and mother so I am always scared someone is watching me or going to try. I am completely, mentally healthy and physically so it is not paranoia. I have proof to back this up.
I have an antenna for my tv, so I noticed one day, this number calls. After I deleted those two files my phone stopped making my TV go all crazy when I would stand by the antenna. Before I would stand by the antenna and it would make the picture all crazy. These people will not stop calling, and they keep downloading files.
I did a system re.. I started over from scratch, taking the sacrifice of losing everything. I backed up all of my files but still lost everything.
How to tell if someone is spying or tracking my Android phone
Someone is spying on me, and putting fIles on my phone. Also, can spy people hack into my phone and watch me through the camera, and record me and how do I stop that? I have a feeling pretty soon technology will advance into some sort of invisible tripod that rises from our screens and can pivot around the room. I am healthy but can see this sort of thing and can feel it happening now or soon. Please help me and answer my question so I can have peace.
Hi J Lion, If you did the factory reset, that should have gotten rid of any spy apps that were installed on your device, but did you install an anti-spyware app, like the on 13?
Having a good, a anti-virus also helps. I understand how scary technology can sometimes get since basically we have our lives on devices that can be hacked somehow. If there is a tracking app installed on my phone did the person need to have access to my phone?? Can the app be installed remotely?? And, if so, do they need access to remove the app?? While typing this message my phone had two notification rings within 4 minutes… No text message… No recent calls noted.. Is it normal like that? Hey — thanks for the advice. Anyway — guess I feel a little better having run this app on my phone- but what are the chances of there being less well documented or perhaps iffy-on the legal side of things software available that people are using?
Can anyone or any app detect, clean or limit them? Hi Ed, I agree, the smarter devices get, the scarier they get for some since you have to protect yourself from all sorts of threats, Back in the day, phones were mostly used just for calling but now, they are like computers in our pockets. Hi Joy, my Trouble is extensive. If I were in your shoes, I would go to the local authorities to see if there is anything they can do. You can always try a factory reset with this your phone will be like when you first took it out of the box to wipe your phone clean of any spyware and some users have even switched phones as well.
I have just installed Anti Spy which found no Spyweare on my device. But, I have a nagging feeling that my Android phone has been tapped due to a consistent nose sniffling noise on the line whenever I phone people. Is there any other way foreign or domestic could spy on my phone activities other than installing a spyware on it?
