What to do if your mobile phone gets hacked

Best Phones in Australia 2020 Top 13 Smartphones Tested and Ranked

Your mobile phone is a valuable tool that contains a lot of personal information. If your phone is hacked, the hacker could access your contacts, photos, emails, and even bank accounts.

Here are some steps you can take if you think your mobile phone has been hacked:

  1. Change your passwords. This includes your passwords for your email, bank accounts, social media accounts, and any other online accounts you use on your phone.
  2. Scan your phone for malware. There are many antivirus and anti-malware apps available for mobile phones. You can use one of these apps to scan your phone for any malicious software.
  3. Factory reset your phone. This will erase all of the data on your phone, including any malware that may be present. However, it will also erase all of your personal data, so make sure you back up your phone before you do this.
  4. Contact your mobile phone carrier. They may be able to help you block the hacker’s access to your phone.
  5. Report the hacking to the authorities. This is especially important if you think the hacker has accessed your financial information.

Here are some additional tips to help protect your mobile phone from hacking:

  • Keep your software up to date. Software updates often include security patches that can help protect your phone from known vulnerabilities.
  • Be careful what you click on. If you receive a link in an email or text message, don’t click on it unless you’re sure it’s legitimate. Hackers often send phishing emails that contain links that, when clicked, will install malware on your phone.
  • Use a strong password. Your phone’s password should be at least 12 characters long and include a mix of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols.
  • Avoid using public Wi-Fi. Public Wi-Fi networks are often not secure, which means that hackers could potentially intercept your data if you’re using them. If you must use public Wi-Fi, be sure to use a VPN to encrypt your traffic.
  • Be careful what apps you install. Only install apps from trusted sources. If you’re not sure whether an app is safe, you can check the app’s reviews before installing it.

By following these tips, you can help protect your mobile phone from hacking.
