Signs that there is a "hacker" inside your phone!

Hackers may be living in the shadows of the digital world, but one professional hacker has shared signs they're lurking in your smartphone.
Expert Laura Kancala said that a high temperature of the device or a random green light on the screen may mean that someone is watching you.

Kankala is leading the Finnish "white hat" (as opposed to the criminal "black hats") in the KyberVPK hacking collective.

“As an ethical hacker, you will know that someone is monitoring your phone because I will tell you and help you remove my access,” she said.

Point on the screen

Kancala said that if you see a green dot on your Android screen or an orange dot on your iPhone, it may be a warning sign that you have been hacked, or that someone has installed a malicious app on your phone.

She explained that these warning points appear when the device's microphone or camera is in use, and could be a warning sign that the phone is running malware aimed at spying on people.

Kancala advises reviewing your applications and deleting unknown ones, or trying resetting your phone settings or running a virus scanning application.

Your phone overheats

Kancala said that a phone overheating could be a warning sign that malware is being installed.

She continued: "When continuous location sharing is activated, your phone's battery will likely run out inexplicably quickly, and you can feel the heat of your phone. You may find strange apps that you cannot remember installing on your phone or apps that you may have accidentally downloaded outside the official app store - on "For example, someone sends you a text message urging you to download an app."

She added: "Sometimes these apps try to disguise themselves and change the name of the app to something that resembles phone settings or something that makes you feel they might be legitimate. It may also be difficult, if not impossible, to delete these apps directly."

Receive emails from social media apps

If you start receiving emails from your bank or social media apps, asking if you want to change your password, it could be a sign that your credentials have been stolen.

Criminals can do this via phishing attacks, where victims are persuaded to visit a fake website.

A call from your bank

Kancala warned that hackers don't need to install evasive apps to target you on your phone, and will often attack you using calls and text messages.

Even if the numbers look correct to your bank, it could be a scam.

“One of the easiest ways to target people using mobile phones with different types of scams is via text messages and phone calls,” Kancala said. “It is very easy to spoof the phone numbers of financial institutions or other known parties and try to manipulate you into doing something that is against your best interests - for example , make an instant cash transaction or provide your credentials for online services."
