Good day all,

My android phone was hacked. Apparently, some of my WA chats have been sent to a relative living abroad.

The same relative received text messages from the same person I was chatting on WA and another individual.

All started with my WA friend (that lives abroad as well) receiving a phone call from me I did not make.

Can somebody explain what could have happened and what should I do?

Thank you.

Remove the SIM card and apply to your Service Provider for another one. They might be able to trace the hacker and report him/her to the Police. Reset the device before installing the new SIM.
Hi. Thank you for our kind reply. Will the phone number change as well or I can keep the same one? Any idea how they did it? Tks.

your important documents, personal details, contacts, and especially bank account information will be revealed if you had on your mobile.
you can do two things -
  1. first, Remove the apps that you have not installed.
  2. Install Antivirus software
Hello, thank you for your reply and suggestions. I did a factory reset. I do have a free Antivirus . Do you have any suggestion? Thank you.
