Is Someone Spying on Your Phone?

by on March 30, 2012
in Phones and Mobile, Cell Phones, Tips & How-Tos, Privacy :: 749 comments

[Editor's note 2/9/17: Since this article was written five years ago, many new phone hacking methods have been developed and/or discovered. We've created a new article to cover those various hacks in our new story: How to Tell if Your Phone Has Been Hacked. Please go there for the latest information. We're keeping this story active for the issues and useful advice contained in the comments.]

You probably know there are plenty of apps you can install on your smartphone to track its location in case it gets lost or stolen. Apple's “Find My iPhone” is one good one and many security apps, such as AVG Mobilation, can track down a phone in seconds.

But what if someone else is tracking you? Is there any chance your boss or spouse could be spying on everything you do on your phone?

It’s easy to do. Spy apps are plentiful and can imperceptibly track text and e-mail messages, location, Web sites you visit, who you call and what photos and videos you shoot. The problem is these apps are difficult to detect and run invisibly in the background.

I decided to track my son and installed an app on his phone called Phone Control by Laucass (free on Google Play). Of course, secretly intercepting electronic communications without the person's knowledge and consent is illegal, so I told my son I was doing it and that I’d only use it if I had good reason.

Every day I receive emails that indicate my son’s location as he’s using his phone out in the world. I can click on those links in my email to see via Google Maps where he is (although I very rarely do). I could also set up the app to send me data about everything else he’s doing on his phone, but that’s not something I personally need—or want—to do.

Signs your phone may have been compromised

Someone borrowed or took your phone

I had to have my son’s phone in hand to install Android Phone Control. Once activated, however, there’s no icon in the application launcher. The app shows up with the name “Android System” in the applications manager so it doesn’t look suspicious. If you think someone could do something like this when you’re not paying attention or asleep, secure your phone with a passcode that isn’t easy to guess.

(Editor's Note 9/26/12: To confirm you have the spyware and not a standard Android app by the same name, follow these steps to open the spy app (dial the phone number.)

(Editor's Note 8/28/13: See our in-depth study of mobile security apps for more detail on 9 of the most common spyware programs and how to detect them.)

(Editor's Note 12/16/14 (Josh Kirschner): In some of my comments below, I noted the unlikelihood of spying on iPhones that were not jailbroken. However, since many of those comments were made, certain holes were identified in iOS that exploit the iPhone's connection to trusted networks and devices to allow someone with access to the network or device to download significant amounts of personal data. Jailbreaking the iPhone was not required. Fortunately, those holes have been patched in iOS 8. For more information, see: http://www.zdziarski.com/blog/?p=3820]

Your phone is acting weirdly

Taking forever to shut off, lighting up for no reason, suddenly getting much shorter battery life or running hot when you’re not using it may indicate hidden processes are running in the background.

Your data usage skyrockets for no reason

This could be because your phone is checking in with someone else, using GPS and sending them text messages or emails that communicate where you are and what you’re doing.

What to do if you suspect your phone's being monitored

The best thing to do is perform a factory reset, which you can find as an option in your phone’s settings. Know, however, that in doing so you will lose all data stored on your phone, so back it up first.

If you’re using Apple iCloud or Android 4.0, items like your contacts, photos and music are automatically synced and saved in the cloud. But if you have an older phone, you’ll want to make sure to export your contacts before doing a factory reset. There are various ways to do this depending on what phone you’re using and which operating system it’s running. If you’re not sure, get help from your cellular provider; they can make sure to retain your contacts and other important data during a factory reset.

You'll then want to use a strong passcode to prevent unauthorized access to your device. For Android devices, you can also install an app, like AppNotifier (free on Google Play), that will email you when programs are loaded onto your phone.

(Editor's Note 9/26/12: See our updated recommendations for Android antimalware solutions)

(Editor's Note 8/28/13: See our in-depth study of mobile security apps for our latest recommendations on how to protect yourself.)

You'll then have to tackle the issue of who's doing the monitoring. Keep in mind that if your device was issued by your company or is authorized to access your company's email and other data services, you may have given your consent as part of your employment contract or when access was data access was granted.

What should happen when you dial the #000* as my service provider came tnrough with automated messages saying call cant be co pleted at tnks time a d tk cal them for more i fo. As well as the restof you i am fed up with the hacking, spoofing,fake sites, settings being changed or inaccessible, weird codes and files left on device never put there and some that says audio or other types of files i cant opem. Passwords bei g changes constant, links thatbare not real just images. CIntervertebral Disc Diseaseoding, bullyimg, harrassment and breech of security that has made my life hell. Fake certificates. Encypted websites that say people could be watching in transit? Even the passwords to log in change from pinto password. Recordings played back to me. Apps taking permissions seriously withpictures beimg take without my knowledge. What in the world is going on here. All documents and pics wiped from phone when wasnt online? Ip address targets every computer. Erases documents and external harddrives and such. Bluetooth and wifi turn on whenever it wants. Enough data to last a mth gone in two days. Battery consumption ridiculous. The list goes on and on. Even though all proof gets wiped most people have seen all lf thi I want for this hackimgto stop. How? When all anti virus, malware programs and other apps dont detect it. I am no longer administer for own computer. No one here is crazy, what is crazy is to do this to people knowingly causing harm and making life difficult

Apple Image Web kit for Developers

From Vincent'so Gal on November 25, 2017 :: 3:26 am

The camera is in the screen itself. They handed them out willy nilly at a lot of tech conferences.  Didn’t check to see if it was mentioned here. CPU went nuts. Try moving an icon over the camera on your screen and it won’t take. Forget about tape over your camera. I was hacked with this in 2014 by my IT boyfriend. Yet, now you can’t find any info on this program. Wonder why? Each we kit has a #.

Name and number Blinks

From Lee on January 23, 2018 :: 11:46 pm

When I go to delete a text message that I have received or sent to a certain individual that name will Blink when it’s highlighted but only for that certain number.  What does that mean?  It will not blink for any other numbers that I have noticed.  I’ve never noticed it before until the other day.

I'm not fully following your issue

From Josh Kirschner on January 26, 2018 :: 3:36 pm

Hi Barbara,

The Casting icon can appear on your phone if you’re using a Google device that has your account information associated with it, such as a Google Home or Chromecast. For example, if I play songs over Spotify on my Google Home, I will see a music casting icon on my phone. Or if I cast YouTube from my phone to my Roku. When you look at the casting notification on your phone, what device does it say it’s connected to?

I'm very confused by your story

From Josh Kirschner on March 01, 2018 :: 10:15 am

Sometimes it’s a niece, sometimes a granddaughter. You say she lives with your mother, then you say she can hear conversations from across the country. But I’ll try to answer as best I can.

If she is living with your mother and you believe that she is controlling/abusing her, you could talk to adult protective services to see if they can investigate and take action. But if your mother is allowing your niece to live in the home, I’m not sure there is anything illegal about her placing a recording device on the landline, especially if your mother is aware of it - it’s her home too, and there’s nothing illegal about recording your own calls. Some states require two-party consent, but if she’s told you she’s recording the calls, then you’re already aware you’re being recorded when you call.

it is NOT moms own calls

From Janet Curtis on March 26, 2018 :: 6:34 pm

so because we are aware of it we have to live with it? w said no we do not agree to be recorded!ITS A FELONY to tap someones phoneas far as I know. Thee has to be a way to get rid of it and remove her from my childhood home so I can see and talk to my mother before she dies. yes she hears it all she hears mom say i hate her i should call the cops. I want to slit my writs yet this sociopathic narcissist doesnt care if shes hurting her granny. at all. she likes it. shes been told get out of my house and take that mean dog with you. she just stares at her and says thats never gonna happen??!! ttthis is NOT ok yes it IS moms home for over 60 yrs! shes my best friend and its OK because she knows about it? NO IT IS NOT IT IS rude and deadly. she already called aps on everyone of us that are out of state. but I was in her home 8 months out of the yr taking good care of her. I never screamed at my mom in my LIFE and now her bp is so high this niece is gonna kill her! but since she already said she covered her butt by telling aps i was bad for my moms heatlth and was given MPA I cant do a thin!? what does that mean she knows about it is is her house. she knows about it doesnt like it and there has to be a way to make this lil bitch sto spying on her I WANT IT OFF does the phone co do it do the police do it? this is pure evil and unwanted. how do we get rid of IT AND HER!?>??no one can answer this and it has been 7 yrs! i have always been with or in touch w my folks my whole life! shes gonna die yet there is never a way to et this evil from her house? im afraid someone in the family is gonna really kill this mean woman she never works or pays for anything she is pure evil. no soul no empathy just a creepy do nothing spy it not LEGAL TO DO THIS why doesnt anyone have an answer?

AND SHE SAYS IM NEVER LEAVING ITS A FREE RIDE! why do you say my mother is allowing this? and why do you say if we know about it its ok? it is NOT OK WE KNOW AND WE HATE IT AND I CANT KEEP ASKING OVER AGAIN YES it is her home yes it is her phone she is NOT IN ANYWAY trying to record her private calls or the family that calls her! why do u say elder abuse is the only way when she is committing a crime!? it is NOT MY NIECES HOME TOO what does that even mean? and who has the right to jutt go into someones elses home and tap someone elses phone yes she said she was recording us and we have been warned. so we are to just put up withit really?>??? she doesnt belong there she has to get out and someone the police maybe must DO SOMETHING you cannot go around tapping phones that are not yours. i dont have a clue why youd even say that its her phone too? no it is MY MOTHERS PHONE PERIOD AND I BOUGHT IT FOR HER! I also got her a cell phone that disappeared as soon as the evil one found out she was talking to me. and yes she went bk east to rip off her other aunts and uncles and while there she was able to hear us! And she isnt supposed to use moms computer but she IS and how is a 91 yr old woman supposed to throw her out of her house her chair her room. my deceased fathers room and then just fill the house with all her things while my mom says get out dont bring that here getrid of that dog he scares my dog no matter what she says a narc is just gonna stare at u like what are u gonna do about it. DIE? thats what!

I'll say again

From Josh Kirschner on March 27, 2018 :: 9:49 am

If your mother is competent and doesn’t want her in the house, and your niece refuses to leave, she can call the police and have her arrested for trespassing. If she is not competent, you, as her daughter, likely can file to become her legal guardian, at which point you can have your niece expelled. You could also talk to adult protective services where your mother lives to see if they can investigate and take action.

In any regard, it is probably valuable to talk to an attorney about this situation and your options since this is far more than a technology issue, from the way you describe it.

spyware

From Diana on March 15, 2018 :: 10:26 am

I know for a fact my phone was being monitored. I have since purchased a new phone.  Changed the phone password and icloud password.  I have not done a factory reset.  Is there a chance the spyware was transferred over to new phone with other data? If so can the person access new phone without knowing new passwords?

Reply

Probably not

From Josh Kirschner on March 15, 2018 :: 10:49 am

If you just transferred data to your new phone, spyware wouldn’t go along with it. If you also transferred apps, I’m not as sure. My initial thought is “no”, even if a spyware app transferred, it would still need to be configured on the new device - that’s how the apps I’ve worked with have functioned. However, I’m not 100% on that and would need to do some testing to confirm. Again, though, if you didn’t transfer apps from your old phone you should be fine.

What should I do

Reply

Probably just an annoyance

From Josh Kirschner on March 27, 2018 :: 9:53 am

When you register a phone number with an app, it almost always sends you a verification code to confirm the number. So since that person isn’t getting your verification codes (presumably, unless they have access to your text messages), it doesn’t see like there’s much harm they can do by registering your number. It may be annoying to you, but I don’t see an easy way to stop it.

Weird thing on iPhone

From GaRose on March 30, 2018 :: 6:26 am

When I get a call on my iPhone people say I sound crackled and sometimes when the person is talking the last word they say keeps repeating itself like a skipping record would..
for example if they say “how are you” sometimes it will be like “” how are you you you you you you””” then I lose the call and have to call them back..
apple has replace it once saying it was “compromised “  I can keep replacing my phones but it doesn’t solve the problem.. I was a votive of gun violence last year and afraid I guess it’s him messing with my phone
Plus I don’t have a data plan on the phone but shows data being used somehow

She commits felony after felony and never gets punished! we are fed up. we probably wont even know when or if shes DEAD as she will steal all she can for NOT being in the will. she will not allow m mother to even write me and steals the mail. now what? mom knows shes devious but shes still allowing it and giving her chances. shes totally drained and lost her spirit! she thinks its medical but I know its the demon in her home!

Reset phone and set up with your son's info

From Josh Kirschner on May 04, 2018 :: 4:31 pm

If your account is on the phone and your son has access, then your information is not very secure. It would be much better to reset the phone and then set it up using your son’s google account. There is no reason to put your account on that phone unless you plan to use it for yourself.

And Yet You Remain Silent

From Jill on December 10, 2018 :: 11:11 am

You keep posting the same thread about some felon granddaughter/niece and your mom. Just go to the police or hire a lawyer. If you really cared, you would have done that. Leads me to think you’re the felon.

Thank god I'm not alone

From Veda on May 27, 2018 :: 5:44 am

First of all josh u have no idea what can be done these days. 7+ yes I’ve been dealing with this. 50+ phones and 4 laptops in the past 2 yrs. And the second I come close to a phone with a battery installed its hacked. I know who is doing it or should I say ppl and the extent they go to is ridiculous. I hurt someone in self defence 8 yrs ago and it happened to be the son of the wrong person. I’ve tried to get help from everywhere. Even police but got kicked out the door. I wonder why. I have a daughter that keeps me pushing thru everyday just to see her 2 times a fortnight because I don’t have a home anymore and finish work late. Every friend in my life has been bought off or threatened. All the good friends I can’t get in contact with at all. I’m bad with all this kind of stuff but have lernt a lot.

First my house mate was planted into my life 5 yrs ago. The only person I trusted and let move in last yr. Turns out he’s a very good hacker but kept it from me. He set up things at my house that sendss frequency’s. Not sure how to explain. He took over my WiFi at home. Even my laptops had been pulled apart and wifi\bluetooth cards changed but worst of all. Pulled my hard drive out and loaded it onto another one with windows 7 installed and all his virus’s. I got my laptop in January 2017 but it doesnt exist before 23 september2017. All my browser’s on computer and phone are there browsers. They control everything I Google. Google LLC. I have 1 shot for the truth before its blocked. Just recently figured it might be some turbo.click.engage thing as it was in my site settings on a brand new phone. No matter where I stay there is a secret network set up. Even both my cars send the network coz they’ve been rewired to be connected and had the network loads into the OBD ( computer )

Now my phones. No matter what provider I go with they mimic the frequency they send and act as my network provider or have a base cell station or femtocell set up. As my car sends the network too. If I don’t have sim card in then my phone gets blue jacked. Its called bluebourne. Been doing android. IOS blackberry since 2015. If bluetooth is off then they get close enough to me to use NFC and turn on Bluetooth etc. My phone gets cloned and sim cards. U can clone a phone if someone has a femtocell at they’re house. It’s for extra coverage in areas at home or businesses where there isn’t much reception. so when u use your phone for a call, msg or data it always bypasses that first. Ur phone automatically connects to it and there is no notfication as its supplued by ur network provider for extra coverage.
Man in the middle attacks can be performed as well. Same with Bluetooth and NFC. Your network provider can control anything on our phone. Perform updates remotely or downgrade without notification. And if someone is mimicing your provider they will even create they’re own firmware or os to suit them. But every phone can be a victim. Trust me I know. Sometimes my firmware or software is downgraded to bypass new security patches. My whole OS is changed. Every app. Google etc. Clock. Calendar. Fb, instagram, twitter DL themselves as apks. One drive, skype. My msg app in ‘noneservice’ I have just recently lost access to my Fb. All my gmail and email accounts I’ve lost. My contacts. My photos of my daughter being born. It just doesn’t end.
It has mentally fucked me that I’m so paranoid because everyone is involved. When I sleep I push shit up to my door and I wake up and the door has been opened while I sleep. But I’m also not paranoid and know all this is happening. I don’t have time to Google shit that I think is happening. I try to search the things that physically happen or see. I’m very observant in things and think a lot. I keep trying to focus on getting better and looking after my kid. but the more steps I take to learn or fix they push me further back. I’m not a smart kid. I knew nothing about it and left school at 15. But after 7 years u start to learn things. I know too much I shouldn’t also because of people in my life. I can’t tell u who I hurt but everyone knows them. They are not law enforcement. But who also has the money to fund everyone with houses and 150k+, study technology and how the brain works. Plan in the future to have everyone planted with a RFID chip. Funny I’ve had a sore knee for just under 6 month’s. I noticed 2 weeks ago a scar. An incision looking scar on the left of my right knee just under my kneecap. If I’m playing phone through Bluetooth and put my phone to my knee it cuts out Bluetooth.. Hackers can put the chips put in they’re hand. If they grab ur phone it uploads stuff on it and sends it to they’re computer at home where they can remotely access our phone. My car can be remotely hacked. Fuck they can even remotely hack and fly a Boeing 777 plane if they want.
Technology is so much more advanced than what anyone knows. And 1% of the population do this.

Yep, you caught me

From Josh Kirschner on May 27, 2018 :: 2:35 pm

You’re right. I work for “them”. This website and our whole business and my entire professional career has been an elaborate ruse to help people spy on your phone. Thanks for sharing your brilliant insights.

Thank you

It’s really a problem for some people, speaking personally. It takes 1 psycho to damage you life. You correct when it comes to reporting to the police, they look at you as if you were the crazy

Just saying

From Monica on June 29, 2018 :: 8:32 pm

You should really speak for yourself because it’s not everyone that’s the same.
He has also helped me but it’s really sad that you are part of the few that contacted a fake psychopath

Text I Didnt type

From mike on July 01, 2018 :: 8:09 am

Yesterday, while sitting outside, I thought i heard the tap tap noise made when Im typing on my Android phone.
I ignored the sound but later when I unlocked the phone, there was someone elses typed message on screen.
As soon as I touched the back button, the text dissapeared and the home screen displayed. Any Ideas ??
Very worrying !
