Hello! My galaxy note 2 has been hacked after opening a link. in a message. The hack wasn't obvious. But the hackers stole all photos and warned me to pay them money. The device is running on andoid 4.2.1.

If i factory restore the phone will it be fine to use it again? since it's offline atm.
Thanks!

Hello mate,

How did you notice that the phone is hacked? The problem may comes from virus.
You can try to repair it with some antivirusapp from GoogleStore. The app will search for viruses and problems on your phone. The factory restet will delete all of your data and put the phone into "stock" state.
