How to catch the person spying on my phone?

My Ex is tracking me. Can read my text. Or, he has my Google info. How to spy on someone through Google?


First of all, collect the evidence that you have to prove that you have been spied upon. If you are using an Android device, install and run this application to find whether your device is rooted, which is circumstantial evidence. As there are many applications on the market, you may just correlate basic symptoms with your phone to see if it is infected. The phone may show extra traffic usage, overheat, receive weird SMS messages, produce noise when making calls, and consume battery a bit faster than usual. You can also connect to a hotspot on a computer with a program like Wireshark that will sniff the traffic and reveal all of the addressed websites, IP addresses, and so on.

Then, you will need to hold off software updating or hard-resetting on your phone. If you suspect that you have a spy application installed onto your phone, you will need to press charges with all of the evidence you have. Installing a spy application is a serious crime against privacy that will be a court case. The carrier will provide the court with IP address printouts in traffic to prove that a spy application has been installed. This will be indicative to which program is installed. And specialists, in collaboration with the spy application developers, will reveal who is spying on your phone or at least the email address to which the spy data is sent. The email address may keep logs of IPs of users connected to it. Your phone will keep traces of the spy application that will be useful too.

Google account details may reveal your email correspondence and your location. You should change your Google account details as soon as possible, but remember that Google keeps the IP logs of those who have connected to your account, which is very useful.

How to protect your phone from spying?

If you suspect any software installed, you will need a thorough investigation. Look for applications like Cydia, Icy, Installer, Installous, or SBSettings. If you receive an SMS with weird text, keep it. It has been become harder to detect spy applications, as some of them do not require jailbreaking anymore.

To avoid that, never leave your phone unattended and always carry it with you. Keep your phone updated at all times. Warn your brother about the laws that he may violate and get in serious trouble with law. Disable iCloud services on your phone (press the home button, tap on "Settings", "iCloud", and "Sign Out"). Updating the phone may keep your system more protected against spy programs and remove jailbreaking, if there is any. Disabling iCloud will not let some spy features work on your phone.
