Hackers are shrewd people who know how to break into someone’s system and use data and information to their advantage. Better safe than sorry, which is why here are some early signs that you can catch on to prevent hackers from hacking into your mobile and stealing your data? Here are 12 sure signs you’ve been hacked and what to do in the event of compromise, The recovery steps listed below are the recommendations to follow if you don’t want to do a full restore but again, a full restore is always a better option, risk-wise:-

1: The Speed of your Mobile
2: Phone Uses More Data
3: Crashing Applications
4: Pop up Ads
5: Suspicious online activity

1: The Speed of your Mobile

The easiest sign to detect hacking is if your cell starts working slow because it usually means that a cyber bug or virus has been installed and is secretively operating in the background using your mobile speed. Sometimes, some person you hand your phone to might install a spy software in it that works invisibly without an icon, but keeps on draining your battery resources. The best solution in this case is to do a factory reset.

2: Phone Uses More Data

You should track your data usage through your data consumption window. If your data usage is unusually higher than that of your previous months, then it is a sign that a malicious adware bug has infected your mobile and is clicking on various websites to generate profit for an application. This is the reason of an unusual increase in data consumption.

3: Crashing Applications

If your applications are crashing on android, then you should turn on the safe mode. Since Iphones do not have a Safe mode, a reset should fix the problem. Press and hold iphone’s sleep and home button simultaneously till it restarts. For iPhone X, press and release the volume up and down button, and then press and release the side button.

4: Pop up Ads

You might see pop up ads, spam message and notifications might inundate your software. Website shortcuts or icons might be created that you have not chosen. These persisting notifications and ads usually link your system to malware.

5: Suspicious online activity

Hackers can get access to your emails and passwords for personal accounts, in which scenario they can make their way to your bank accounts and sensitive personal information. If you ever notice an unexplained sent or received file in your email, it is a definitive sign that someone else is accessing your account.
