How to tell if your phone has been hacked

Nowadays, there are a few things our smartphones can’t do. They’ve gotten so powerful and integrated into our lives that it’s easy to argue that they are more important than computers.Unsurprisingly, cybercriminals now frequently target smartphones because of all the valuable data they can contain. Meanwhile, disguised malware continues to show up in app stores despite Google and Apple trying to root it out.The McAfee 2020 Mobile Threat Report (PDF) notes that hackers harm smartphone users in various ways, including stealing information, hiding malware, serving unwanted ads, and more. Here are the warning signs that you should be on the lookout to keep your smartphone and data safe.Your Smartphone is Acting StrangeOver time, it’s natural for smartphones to start getting a little slow. But if your new Samsung Galaxy suddenly can’t load a YouTube video, you might have a problem. Pay attention to some of these performance issues:Are web pages taking a long time to load?Does your battery drain quickly?Are you exceeding your cellular data limits?Does your phone feel hot?Are you having difficulty performing basic phone functions or changing settings?If any of this seems familiar, you may have downloaded a malicious app or file that is harming your phone’s performance.Unexplained Apps or ActivityWith so many apps on your phone, it can be easy to lose track of them. But you know yourself. If you fear flying and suddenly have thirteen travel apps, something isn’t right.Unexplained apps, along with other irregular activities like calls, messages, and emails you didn’t send, sign a hacker that has gotten into your phone. They may be using your device to pose as you and send malware to your friends and family.Pop-Ups, New Browsers, RedirectsOne of the most common forms of malware involves serving ads that direct users to less than reputable sites. If you’re getting a flood of ads or your browser settings have been changed to land you on pages constantly, you’re not trying to navigate to, then this is another major clue that your phone has been hacked.What You Should Do If Your Phone Has Been HackedYou need to act quickly. The longer a threat actor has access to your smartphone, the more damage they can do.The first thing you should do is remove the malicious app. It’s likely the malware has been packaged into one of the latest apps you’ve downloaded. So, deleting these apps is essential. However, you might want to go a step further, and factory reset your phone. This has the best ability to remove the malware more comprehensively.Before you do so, be sure to back up your important data so you can get access to it again later.Likewise, similar to how you use antivirus software on your desktop computer, you should also use mobile security tools to scan and remove threats from your device.Finally, to prevent malware attacks on your smartphone in the future, you must avoid public WiFi. Public WiFi is one of the most common places that hackers hide malware to place on unsuspecting victims’ phones. Likewise, they can also use your IP address to track your online activity.The best advice is then always to hide your IP address. You might be thinking, how do I hide my IP address? It’s quite easy. With a VPN, you both conceal your IP and encrypt your internet connection, making you much safer against digital threats.After you get a VPN enabled on your smartphone, you create new passwords for your online accounts. Make sure they are unique and complex to make them tough for hackers to crack. This is why you should consider using a password manager to store your passwords securely in a digital vault.Don’t wait until your smartphone becomes infected. Pay attention to these warning signs and start arming yourself with the right security tools like VPNs, password managers, and mobile security software. There’s no better way to keep your phone safe.Image by Stefan Coders from PixabayEDITOR NOTE: This is a promoted post and should not be viewed as an editorial endorsement.

How to migrate data to a Xiaomi/Redmi/Poco/Mi phone

With smartphones becoming increasingly more affordable, buying one can be a semi-regular occurrence. However, moving data between your old phone and the new one can be cumbersome.Many people will opt to transfer the data to a computer and then to the new phone. Historically, that was what one had to do. Or, users would back up what they could to a microSD card. Today, smartphone manufacturers have dedicated apps that make this process easy, efficient, and seamless.This guide will teach you how to move all your personal data (SMS, calls, apps, photos, etc.) from your old phone to a Xiaomi branded phone. With this, you won’t have to worry about copying data on a computer or removable storage.As Xiaomi evolves and expands into sub-brands, one might think that each of them will require their own set of migration apps. However, while they’re all sold under different names, they all operate using Xiaomi’s custom MIUI experience.As long as your phone is running MIUI, this guide will work on your Redmi, Mi, Poco, or any other brand under the Xiaomi umbrella.Pre-requisitesInstall Mi Mover on the phone you’re moving the data from and on the Xiaomi phone you’re moving the data to. Have both phones at 80% charge if there is a lot of data.In most cases, Mi Mover comes pre-installed in Xiaomi phones.Let’s Go!Once you have Mi Mover installed, open up the app on your Xiaomi phone and choose “I’m a recipient”.You might get a prompt on your Xiaomi phone to install the app via a QR code, if this comes up, just tap on “Installed. Start the transfer.”Boot up the app on your old phone and grant permissions on both phones where required. When the app is loaded, choose “I’m a sender” on the old phone.You will either have to wait for the Xiaomi phone to show up on the old phone, or you can manually connect to the hotspot by navigating to your Wi-Fi on your old phone and selecting the hotspot manually using the SSID name mentioned on the Xiaomi phone, in this instance the hotspot name is POCOPHONE F1_pOYJ.When you choose the hotspot from your old phone, you can now choose what you wish to send over.Once you have selected the necessary items to send, simply press Send from your old phone. You’ll get a popup informing you to not turn on Wi-Fi or switch networks during operation.Just like we do for OnePlus phones, we highly recommend leaving both phones alone until the transfer completes to ensure all your data carries over without incident.Once the transfer is done, your Xiaomi phone will take some time to migrate the data and with that, you’re done!Other Helpful GuidesHow to migrate your data to a Pixel phoneHow to migrate your data to a OnePlus phone
