Do you have the impression that someone watch your Whatsapp conversations or listen to your phone calls?

Spyware Android are very difficult to detect for an average user. Indeed, hackers are learning more and more to conceal their activity.
Fortunately, there are a few methods that can alert you to a possible infection under Android. In this post, I'll show you 5 tips to find out if someone is spying on your smartphone.

1) Abnormally high Internet consumption

Has your monthly data usage increased recently?

Is your device using more data than usual, but you haven't changed your internet habits?

This could indicate that someone has installed a spyware Android on your device.

Verifying your data usage is a critical factor in determining whether spyware or tracking software is installed on your phone.

How to Check Cellular Data Usage on Android

To check your cellular data usage on a device Android, proceed as follows.

  • First, open Settings from your phone Android.
  • Then press Connections.
  • On the Login screen, tap Use of data.
  • Here you can see the current data usage of all mobile apps installed on your device.

 2) Presence of suspicious applications

Some spyware downloads applications from Google Play without your knowledge. You should therefore be wary if unusual applications appear on your mobile.

Browse the list of apps installed on your phone. If there are any that you haven't installed or do not recognize, it could be spyware.

Additionally, hackers try to imitate and clone legitimate apps to trick users into installing them. Then they use automatic app updates to replace them with malicious apps.

To check the applications installed on your mobile, follow these steps:

  • Open Settings from your mobile.
  • Look for the section "Apps" or a similar title like "Application Management" ou "List of applications".
  • Scroll down the list of applications to identify those that you have not installed or that seem foreign to you.
  • Touch an app to access its details: permissions, data usage, etc.
  • Search online if necessary to get more information about a specific application.
  • Uninstall any suspicious or unwanted application from this screen.

3) Your battery drains quickly

Another way to tell if someone is spying on your phone is to increased battery usage.

As you can imagine, all of this unauthorized background activity can take a toll on your battery life.

If you find that your device's battery is starting to drain quickly for no tangible reason, it may mean that your device is infected with spyware.

4) Battery temperature increase in standby mode

While the increase in battery temperature could be a sign of several technical issues, it can also indicate that unauthorized activity, such as spyware activity, is occurring in the background.

If you haven't used your smartphone recently and it just sat idle on your desk, it shouldn't be hot or hot to the touch. If it's too hot, spyware could be running behind the scenes , collect information and send it back to their homes.

5) Random pop-ups on your screen

If you see advertisements that appear by themselves on Android, whatever app you are using, it could mean that your phone is being spied on

To eliminate both the possibility that spyware and virus Android cause Pop-ups, perform a factory reset.

If and other types of pop-up ads that go beyond the normal behavior of an application may indicate that a virus Android has probably installed on your Smartphone.
