Your device is most likely iPhone 4S, not iPhone 4. iPhone 4S got an iOS 9 update, which introduced the low-power mode. To disable it, please follow our tutorial on the low-power mode for the iPhone devices.

If your device is iPhone 4, then someone had jailbroken the device and installed iOS 9 somehow, which does not necessarily mean any spy programs. In case it is iPhone 4, not iPhone 4S, it is recommended to remove the jailbreak by connecting the phone to the PC, running iTunes, clicking your phone, and then backing up your phone by clicking "Back Up Now". Then, click "Restore Backup..." and select the latest image. This will remove the jailbreak and any spy programs. For extra security measures, just follow our tutorial on how to factory reset your iPhone.

Is this proof there may be a spy or has my phone just got problems?

Recently I have noticed my battery draining faster than usual and my phone is always warm and over the past week I have noticed that weird sounds have been coming from my phone its difficult to describe the exact sound its like the sound when you plug your phone into a computer but my phone isn't plugged into anything and it is normally next to me when the noise goes off however just a few hours ago I noticed it happened again. My phone was locked so the screen was black but I happened to notice this small gray line appear in the middle of my screen (it looked like the static you get from TV) the line was thick in the middle then thin along the sides. This made me worried about a spy so I downloaded the spyware you suggested, however, nothing has shown up? From what I have read no one has had this issue only a person appear which could have been an ad however my phone was locked when a line of static appeared. I have tried: Anti-spy software which was suggested in the article, however, nothing has been detected. I think it was caused by: I have no clue. However, I forgot to mention the main reason I believe theirs a spy on my phone is because of my 360 app (anti-virus software also cleans and boosts my phone? Had warned me there was 1 spy detected however I thought they were saying that to make me download their other app so I ignored it but then all this stuff started to happen

How do they piggyback a spy app on a seemingly simple picture? How many KBs does that make the pic download?

I'm receiving lots of pics - just random stuff- from an ex-boyfriend. I'm wondering the Avg KB of pics and is 1133KB a huge one that can possible carry a spy app like that.? Aldo- where can I research this? I'm not asking Google the right questions, I think. Thanks. I have tried: Attempting multiple queries but not getting specific information. I think it was caused by: I read a small snippet about its possibility and noticed that my ex was sending just silly random pics that have more KB than normal

I am just wondering if my iPhone is really that safe and secured?

Hello, I am just curious and would like to confirm my security on my iPhone. How would I know if someone (or something) is ever spying on my phone? Like I believe I have visited some suspicious websites before or those that can't be trusted and I'm kind of wondering if they can possibly install some malicious app or something on it. Please give me advice, thanks!

Can a non-smartphone be spied on? Like a flip phone?

A friend of mine's husband always seems to have more info than he should. Like where she is right now when he is across the country. Or who she is with, or conversations that he shouldn't have any way to know about. We were discussing possibilities and this question came up.

How do I prove my phone is hacked? I have about 30 crashes daily; I have no apps at all and do not make calls and barely use the phone other than as a table decoration.

I am having difficulties finding a tech in my area. I am on my 5th hacked cell phone since Sept. and it averages about 30 crashes a day. It was new Dec. 30th and is my second iPhone since Dec. 22nd. I was first notified of the hacking issue on Sept. 5th by Google Security. I know who it is. Just want it to end. I have screen shots from this phone. I have pics from my original Chromebook-a Safari 5.1 browser was synced to it when I purchased it in April 2015 without my or his knowledge by the hacker. She has compromised my Gmail, docs, and files. My banking. My identity. Accessed my banking. Signed a contract online. Applied for a credit card in my name. Put the Phonty app on my devices. I cannot get any assistance with this hacking and stalking problem because I cannot find a technician. I only learned today about the keylogging feature of the Phonty app. I might be the only grandmother of six with the Phonty app on her phone. I have tried: I have contacted the state police and sent a report to the fbic3. I found one technician when I still had only one cell phone and one Chromebook and he spent three days and nights and couldn't fix he has spent 30 years repairing computers. I have now gone through two laptops and five cellphones. I think it was caused by: A computer knowledgeable woman who worked for Microsoft for over 20 years., and other computer-related firms, and has her own online business that is programmed to run 24/7. Cause: my guess would be post-menopausal, obsessive, jealous, mentally unstable lunacy. Directed at me.
