Hi guys,

I have a problem with my Android phone. I have suspicion that my phone is infected with spyware or someone manipulate software on the phone. My problem is i can find no malware, i try with downloading apps to my pc and upload it on virustotal.com, i try anti spy-app, antivirus-app - nothing found.
Then I reading a lot of spy-apps and how they run e.g. FlexiSpy. This apps can be uninstall remotly. It is possible to restore this spy-app?
What kind of possibilities exists to manipulate software on an Android? How can I protect me?
It is possible that the cracker, can listen conversation of a victim, if there is no connection to the internet?
What can i do else to find leaks?

Thanks.

regards,

texnex
