We cannot tell that, but you can see if the signs from the article show up on your phone.

Spy programs are available for Symbian, iOS, Blackberry, and Android phones. The features you have described are typical for spy programs. If you have had an episode where you might have not seen your phone for 10-30 minutes, and your husband was nearby. Then, if he knows your unlocking code, he could take advantage of the situation and install something. Some spying software leave traces in the Android file system, which can be discovered by a file manager like X-plore File Manager with shown hidden files. These files often repeat the name of the spy applications ("movistealthv2.apk" for Mobistealth). All you need is to search for APK files on all of your phone and look the file names up on the Internet, but it may take a lot of time. There can be traces of intrusion if your phone suddenly is jailbroken (iOS) or rooted (Android). Use Root Checker Basic to see if your Android phone is rooted. It is harder with iPhone, but you can just swipe right from your home screen and type "Cydia". If you see it, the phone is jailbroken.

Also, you have the full right to press charges against the person spying on you once you find enough evidence. If you do wish to do so, do not update your iPhone. Turn off any mobile data and WiFi to conserve your phone for the court.

To get rid of the spy applications, update or hard-reset your iPhone or your Android or reset your Symbian phone. Blackberry phones will need resetting too.

I have an iPhone 6 and the person that is spying on me never had my phone, but I had the noises, battery draining, and even naked pictures of me posted online. I want to go to the authorities but I need proof, is there?

Hi, how can I find out if my phone is tracked with wireless provider without asking the person who signed the contract?

My phone is one of multiple phone plan of AT&T and some how I have a hint that other person (or persons) can track where I go or at home. I have tried: I tried to look up on internet, but came to many blogs or website show how to "snip" if cell phone have been tracked with the app. I think it was caused by: Some times I came home and felt like somebody has sneaked in when I'm gone, but it didn't happen if I go some place near by and in the short time (like market); just happened when I go far and long time
