Everything Smartphone, tablet or computer can be hacked somehow. Therefore, we must be very careful when we navigate in everything that has to do with the Internet. Anything that has an operating system is possible to be hacked, so the care we must take is essential, not even when we have antivirus on computers is it 100% possible to avoid any kind of malwareTherefore, in order to be completely safe, it is necessary to follow a series of points that we are going to discuss below.
How to know if my mobile has been hacked
To find out, the first thing you should do is download a quality antivirus to be able to analyze it. In this case, I recommend the one that, at least for me, has worked wonders for me and is the AVG Antivirus Free that you can get in the store Google Play Store.
The idea is that you thoroughly analyze your Smartphone so that if you find something, the antivirus take care of removing it completely.
Another thing you should do whenever possible is to keep your device fully updated to the latest version of the operating system. This also goes for computers for example. The point is that when you do not have the device updated, vulnerabilities can accumulate and therefore, you begin to have a more insecure mobile than usual.
To find out if we have new updates available, you need to access the Settings menu and then go to About the device and finally go to Update software.
In case your device does not have updates, we recommend you try root at the same to be able to try to access any of the versions of Cyanogenmod which are generally more updated with the versions of some mobiles and even for those who like it, in a few words they are pure Android, without any kind of nonsense that companies such as add Samsung, etc.
Likewise in the case of root users, be very careful if you do not have experience since not only can they damage your mobile, but it is also possible that by having access to all the files of the mobile device they can in case of having a virus or malware in general, unconsciously giving you permissions to access such files.
But basically with the first advice I gave you, you should always have your mobile free of any malware. The issue with viruses is that despite the fact that, as I said, we have an antivirus this not 100% effective. The idea is that one is also attentive, when you want to download something read comments from people who did it before us, not downloading things from strange sites, using trusted sites and in short, being a little more cautious.
