– If you begin to notice that the battery of your smartphone depletes faster than before, the device may be infected with a virus or malware.
– If your calls often drop or you have strange disruptions during conversations, this should ring alarm bells.
– You should be suspicious if you start to notice outgoing phone calls you didn’t make or texts you didn’t send. If no friend or family member used your phone, the chances are high that your gadget is infected with a virus.
– In most cases, constant ads and pop-ups appearing on the screen are sure signs of a smartphone virus. You probably downloaded an app with adware on your gadget.
– A very common sign of a virus is the appearance of unfamiliar apps on your phone. You know for sure that you haven’t installed them, but they do exist.
– If your smartphone is infected with a virus, you might spot a noticeable increase in data usage. A malicious bug can use the data source of your gadget to send out information and show pop-up ads.
– An enormous phone bill is a sure sign that your smartphone has caught a virus. Some malware sends out a huge number of messages until you’re left with a significant phone bill.
– If a game you’re playing on your smartphone suddenly crashes for the first time, it’s suspicious. But if this starts to occur repeatedly, something has definitely gone wrong.
– A Trojan virus can uninstall apps on your gadget or make your phone send expensive texts.
– Worm is typically spread with the help of text messages. The worst part is that it doesn’t need any interaction with a user to be activated.
– Ransomware disables a gadget and makes its owner pay ransom to regain control over their phone.
– Don’t let your device download any apps until you enter a password.
– Install a good anti-virus. Free inbuilt programs aren’t bad, but they aren’t really effective. If you use the internet on a daily basis, you should have a professional anti-virus.
