Do not leave your cell phone or smartphone unattended. There are types of malware and spyware that can be downloaded to your phone that track everything you do, from a separate location. In addition, it will forward all of your emails, text messages and Facebook messages to another phone or computer. It also allows the person spying to view your call logs.
This software can be purchased by anyone and cannot be detected by you once it is on your phone. There is no easy way to delete the spyware once it is on there, and many cell phone companies do not know how to erase it. It is safest just to replace the phone with one you are sure has not been tampered with.
In addition, someone can track you using your GPS without touching your phone at all. All they need is your phone number, and the internet, and they can follow you anywhere you go. If you have GPS on your phone, it is connected to a satellite 24 hours a day that can locate your position anywhere. Anyone can use this feature against you by simply ‘buying’ access to it.
