Technical Tips

AntiSpy Mobile is an anti-spyware that will scan, identify, and remove spyware on your cellular phone. The app has an excellent detection system because it can even detect newer and probably tougher spywares that are currently making havoc in many phones today. If you upgrade to a higher version of the application, you will automatically receive a new background and high-speed scanner and a notification in status bar.

2. Hidden Device Admin Detector

Another free scanning app that can detect nasty apps that can access data even those that are hidden and accessible only by admin users. Android spywares take advantage of the Android device weakness to avoid detection. The app can get rid of any disguising malware in your phone.

3. Privacy Scanner (Antispy) Free

This app can determine if your smartphone is being tracked. If your parents or someone installed a tracking app on your mobile phone, it means they can view and manage everything on your phone, including your messages, phone calls, calendar, contact list, phone history, etc. But worry no more if you have Privacy Scanner—spy apps like SpyBubble, eBlaster Mobile, UonMap Spy can be detected by this app.

4. Stop Spy: Anti Spy Checker

Technical Tips

One obvious thing that can possibly happen to your phone if it is infected by a malicious malware is you keep running out of phone credit (prepaid) or you have unusually high phone bills (postpaid) and you  know you’re not a heavy phone user.

That’s because some spywares will send SMS/MMS without you being aware of it. The result is unnaturally high and unexpected phone charges.

Another solution to this problem is reverting your phone to factory settings. The drawback is you will lose all your important files including installed apps and games.
