These are indicators that your phone is compromised with malware

The first sign is a decline in the performance of your phone. If apps are taking too long to load or they are crashing randomly, your phone might have been hacked. Another good sign that something isn’t right is when the batteries on your phone are draining too fast. With malware running secretly in the background, the infected app needs to get power somewhere and it is coming from your phone’s battery right under your nose. Is your phone running out of battery life too quickly or running hot constantly? It could be malware

Wouldn’t it be nice to know whether your smartphone has been compromised? There are various indicators that attackers have injected malware into your phone’s bloodstream via a “infected app” that you should be on the alert for. This list was published by The Sun, and you should strive to remember them, especially since most people are blind to the warning signals that your phone has been hacked.

Along the same line, if you don’t have an unlimited data plan and you notice that you’re running low on data earlier in the month than usual, that might have nothing to do with your video game obsession and could be the result of the malware that your phone is running. And if the monthly invoice from your wireless provider is going up for no reason, well, there might be a reason for this that you don’t know about. Hey, are you seeing a lot of pop-ups on your phone’s display? If you are, you can bet your bottom dollar that your phone has been infected by adware. This could generate a nice income for the hacker who is responsible for all of these ads popping up on your device.

Watch out for these signs that your phone has been hacked – These are signs that your phone could be infected with malware Watch out for these signs that your phone has been hacked. And while there are reasons other than malware for having your phone overheat, it could be a sign that your handset is infected. If you do suspect that malware is the problem with your handset, take a look at the app storefront on your phone and look for a highly rated antivirus app and install it to find the culprit.

If you try this and the problems don’t disappear, your phone might be saying to you “FU.” That’s right, the dreaded Factory Update might be called for. Make sure you back up files and data that you want to keep and wipe your phone. Hopefully, you won’t have to resort to this. But having your phone hacked is a pretty serious problem that could result in having your bank account wiped out by a faceless, nameless criminal.

Keep a close eye on the performance of your phone and at the first sign that something seems amiss, look into installing an antivirus app before things get out of hand. There are many different kinds of malware. Adware will pay the hacker revenue by automatically generating ads on the user interface of your phone. Other forms of malware can control your phone remotely and take over your camera and other features. Others will sign you up without permission for premium-priced services (often messaging services) that you don’t want and never asked for.

This is so half baked. Tell people the problem (which a draining battery could literally be an old battery or app update issue. There have been multiple articles on here talking about how Facebook and such had a battery drain glitch) and don’t even give them a solution. Download a highly rated anti virus? People are idiots and there are lots of review bots out there. Not to mention none of them actually actually work. They just charge you for stuff and put ads on your phone.
