    I believe my mobile (cellphone) was hacked and maybe still is.

    i did a factory reset and it seemed like the hacker is still there.
    my questions are:
    does he have access to my mic and cam?
    i did a wipe data after, but uploaded my vids and pics on google driver, are these vids and pics hacked?
    what's the best way to avoid getting hacked?
    is there a tool to change all passwords automatically? and if there is, is it safe?

    -dont download apk's from unknown sources, dont lend out your phone, always use unlock protection but not some dumb pin or facial recognition
    -hell no

    its really rare for a phone to actually get hacked
    what makes you think its hacked?

    it does weird things while using it, like opening apps or doing different commands...i end up having to lock it but right after i unlock it back it is working fine (poco x3 pro)

    what really makes me think it's hacked is because some apps were compromized (passwords) according to google chrome when that first happened

    Viruses arent just a pc thing.

    Mobile phones can get viruses if you goto the wrong sites or click dodgy links.

    You have put a virus on your phone by looking at a dodgy website or clicking a ad.

    Forum signatures make my eyes hurt so i have turned them off.

    what app/command did it open?
    are you sure it was from google chrome, not some random website claiming "you are not safe" and then ask you to click something?

    try deleting all your apps and check permissions... probably they got a mac address lock on u and possible they know your carrier and phone number.. have u checked your credit or any suspicious activity like someone trying to sign up a new credit card etc...

    i got my credit card hacked through a home depot breach... someone ended up using it to buy high end stuff from nordstrom more than 3000 miles away.

    should have seen when i got my credit card bill....
