How do you know that your cell phone is tapped

The program for wiretapping cell phone falls into the machine in the following ways:

1. Bluetooth channel 2. On Wi Fi channel 3. In an MMS message 4. Placed by a computer 5. Pumped by a malicious link

Program for wiretapping cell can be divided into two groups : 

1. Discussions are stored in memory bugged phone (of course hidden). about five megabytes of free memory is sufficient to record the call duration of one hour. Modern phones are 30-50 megabytes of internal memory, which is enough to record at least 6 hours of talk. In the future, recording conversations are transmitted in one of the possible ways (WiFi, WAP, 3G, GPRS) from the phone to the e-mail in the form of mail (letters with the application containing the "audio files") or via USB or Bluetooth to a computer or cell phone. The difference only in that the means for the transfer of data will be debited from the account bugged phone that will affect the payment of communication services (especially if the operator high cost of Internet services).


2. The second method gives less positive results. At the beginning of the conversation to listen to phone you comes SMS with the number of incoming or outgoing calls to / from listening to a mobile phone. Then you call on the cell phone and listening "wedged" into the conversation a third companion (conferencing).This option is used in very rare cases of eavesdropping. The method is not perfect and was not widely used.Follow GSM phone without the permission of the owner is illegal, and it provides for liability. If there is speculation that the phone is "living a double life," then a couple of useful tips on how to detect the wiretap mobile phone will be more than helpful.

Install spyware on someone else's cell is easy, so who gives a guarantee that right now not listening to you personally?

Immediately I must say that listen to cell phone, intercepting its signal by means of some box with an antenna, it is impossible. The data channel is encrypted bad, so "wiretapping" at this level can deal only with the operators themselves communication on request of specific intelligence agencies. However, keep an eye on his beloved wife possible and less high-tech ways. On the Internet, many programs available that can secretly working on the phone and the victim retain or transfer to the side of the recording of telephone conversations, SMS-messages geographic coordinates, and even pictures with built-in camera. Some programs are able to work as a full "bug": you call the machine and unbeknownst to the owner hear everything that is going around. It's pretty handy if you need to overhear a secret meeting, or at least a secret date. At risk are users phones based on Symbian OS and Windows Mobile. Spyware is and for the iPhone, but not install them on a hacked phone will not work (as in the official store App Store programs are, of course, not sold).

Determine that the phone live "bug" an inexperienced user is difficult. However, there are several signs that may indirectly confirm the presence of "wiretapping". 

1. The high temperature of the battery

if the battery on your phone hot - it means that he is actively discharged. This is normal during conversation, but if a machine has not been touched for a couple of hours and it is still noticeably warm, then inside that something is happening, for example, runs a spyware program. 2. Phone too quickly discharged This point follows from the above that if the battery is discharged too quickly, especially if the phone is not used more than usual, so inside it "runs" some potentially dangerous application. However, remember that over time, the batteries "wear out" and reduced working hours - this is normal. You only need to worry if the week phone back working on a single charge for three days, but now only one. 3. Delay when switching off Pay attention to the delay when phone is switched off. If this process takes a suspiciously long time, accompanied by flashing highlighting (it can burn for a while after turning off) or off do not succeed, then the phone that something is happening. It may be, of course, the usual technical problems, but can not be excluded and more unpleasant alternatives. 4. Total strange behavior if the phone spontaneously activates the backlight screen, power off, reboot, install or run programs then most likely you have already "under the hood". Of course, here we can not exclude some failures in the operating system, but do not pay attention to it does not. 5. Interference and crosstalk interference can be of two kinds: those that you hear during the conversation, and those that arise in the presentation to the phone, such as PC Speaker.


In the first case a suspicious echo or any other noise (clicks, hiss, etc.) that accompanies your conversation to any subscriber at any time. Sometimes the appearance of interference is the result of poor signal reception or other similar problems, but if the noise is heard always and not for the first day, it is a cause for excitement.

The second case - a transmitting antenna pickup the phone to other devices, primarily on the speaker or speakers. You probably have heard this "bubbling" sound . It occurs during a call, as well as in standby mode at short intervals when the mobile phone accesses the base station. Considered abnormal continuous "bubbling" in a time when on the phone no one speaks. This could mean that spyware has entered the relationship with another phone, and sends it all around you.
