How can you tell if your Android device has been hacked?
Posted On July 9, 2021
TechRadars English readers are in for a treat this week when we publish an article titled How can I tell if my Android device is being hacked?
It is not just a matter of if it is being stolen, it is also about whether it has been modified.
We believe that this article should be the first step in stopping Android malware.
The first step is to ensure that you have the latest Android security patches and firmware updates.
The next step is also essential for those with Android devices running Lollipop.
If you have a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge or newer device, you can install Android security updates on this device.
This will also help you protect your data and data encryption keys.
If your device is running Lollypop, you will want to uninstall it first.
It will also stop the rootkit from being installed on the device.
If your device has an Intel processor, then you will need to uninstall Android version 7.0 (Marshmallow) and later versions.
These updates prevent the malicious code from running in the background and is not necessary if you have already installed Android security fixes on your device.
Finally, make sure your device’s software and firmware versions are up to date.
If not, it can also prevent your device from working correctly and potentially causing data loss.
