How To Tell If Your Phone Is Being Spied On

There can be many signs that show your phone is being tracked, tapped or monitored in some way. But we are here to show you what to look out for.While taking phone calls, if you here clicking, static, or a distant voice coming through might be a sign. If you are hearing fragmentary voices, they may not be in your head. Another tell tale sign would be, decreased battery capacity. If the phone is being recorded would leave a footprint in the form of an increase in battery usage.

Is the screen lighting up and making noises when you're not using it or you didn't get any notifications? If it does, that might tell you that someone has access to your phone. When shutting down, the smart phone has to complete tasks beforehand. So, if you try and shut down your phone and it takes a while (especially after sending a message or finishing a phone call) that might mean that your phone is trying to send information to another party.

If your phone feels really hot quite often, than it might be a sign that your phone could be being tapped. Especially if you haven't been using it, but this is only a potential sign. Your phone getting rando messages might not be something to just ignore. If these messages involve random numbers, symbols or characters if it happens regularly, you could have spy app on your phone. If your phone seems to have be using too much data you might have a less reliable spy app on your phone.

So with all these signs, we might just be keeping a closer eye on our phones. How about all our listener friends? Let us know @theMRLshow !
