Do you have reason to believe someone has tapped your phone? A spouse? A parent? An Ex?  Does a particular person seem to know everything about your personal life, but should really have no way of knowing?

Here are the tell tale signs that your phone has been tapped.

TROUBLE SHUTTING OFF YOUR PHONE

There is typically a significant time lapse in turning your phone off if it's tapped. If it seems like it's taking forever to shut off, and the back light won't shut off, it's a pretty good indicator that your phone has been tapped.

RANDOM EXPLAINABLE ACTIVITY

Is your phone installing programs on it's own? Is there distortion? If you KNOW your phone, you'll know when it starts acting funny, that it's been tapped. Your phone typically won't have problems like this, unless someone is listening in on your conversations.

HEARING BACKGROUND NOISES AND CLICKING SOUNDS

Are you hearing echoes or static? The reason you have the echo problem is because someone else is listening in on the conversation. Sometimes your calls are being recorded and then are sent directly to the individual tapping your phone.

INCREASED DATA USAGE

Determining whether or not there is drastic data usage is another indicator. If another person has access to your device, they also have access to all of your apps, and even internet browsers. Spy applications also transmit the data to other locations. These transmissions are completed via the internet and occur 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

LOW BATTERY LIFE AND HIGH TEMPERATURES

The installed application runs all day, thus your phone never gets a break.

ARE YOU RECEIVING CODED TEXTS?

If you are experiencing any coded messages, then it probably means someone has access to your phone.
