    so this is just a general message to all android users. something everyone SHOULD know about but most (non-tech) smartphone users fall short and victim to... the reason im posting this is because the wifes phone has been acting wierd lately, by wierd i mean apps have been opening up by themselves, internet browsers opened to websites that she would never go to, wallpapers keep getting changed, phone randomly being turned off, all of this happening most of the time while shes at work. now just so we know her wasnt rooted till two days ago which i did to see if maybe there was just something wrong with the stock crap that she had. turns out this wasnt the case. so i decided to post this just to make people more aware and hopefully prevent this from happening to anyone else.


    what you can do to prevent this invasion


    first and foremost PUT A PASSWORD ON YOUR PHONE!!! even if you have nothing to hide this will help from major things like bank accounts and passwords from emails getting stolen!

    make the password hard to guess by this i dont mean use your kids names or birthdays but something no one would ever guess and use a combination of numbers and letters and never use the same password twice!

    change your password atleast once a week! this will help to keep potential hackers guessing and make it harder for them to figure it out and hey if they figure it out this week they may not next week.

    try to stay off of unsecured wifi networks, most routers these days have a firewall built in and if the network is protected by a password this will make it that much harder for a hacker to get into your files!

    make sure you have your bluetooth set up so that other devices can only see you if they are paired or just keep it turned off when its not being used! same goes for NFC, Smart Beam, Bump, things of that nature...

    dont let browsers like firefox, google chrome, e.g. save password this will also help to prevent the hacker from getting access to your email's and bank accounts! also a good idea to make sure you sign out of apps when you close them instead of leaving them open.


    i hope this helps anyone else who may have had or has a problem with this from it ever happening again!

    no joke... getting hacked is very real and very much possible... i havent done it in years and never to a smartphone/tablet but i have messed with afew other peoples systems once or twice in my day. you only need two programs to hack into someones computer system, said programs dont let you send viruses or anything like that but they did allow me to bluff my way into making people think i had full control over there system!

    this wasnt a post to make people freak out or no longer want there smart devices, just ment to inform others of what can/should be done to help prevent this.

    Public wifi is extremely dangerous to use. If somebody on that network is using a sniffing app as soon as you login to an account that sniffer app grabs your password and login data.
