Techopedia Explains Cell Phone Spying
As upsetting as cell phone spying sounds, it is worth remembering that a spy needs to physically gain access to the victim’s phone to set it up. Some possible signs that a cell phone has been compromised include:
- The screen lights up at random times with no prompting
- Background noise on calls
- Random camera flashes
- Difficulty powering down the phone
If you believe your phone is running spy software, you can take it your provider and have it wiped and restored to its factory settings.
