Can Someone Hack into Your Phone by Calling You or Texting You?


Can Someone hack into your mobile phone by calling and texting you?

This is the most common question people always ask. We can understand your fear. Our mobile is the primary device where we store all of our private information from photos, videos, to personal bank details and much more.

So, by hacking our mobile one can easily put their hands on our personal information. What's even worse is that the hacker steals this information only on a random call or text. So can someone really hack into your phone by calling or texting you? Well the answer is "Yes" but not in the way you are thinking.

Before we proceed first you need to know the answers of some common questions. Afterwards, we will discuss the whole process of how hacking exactly works. So let's proceed with these two simple questions.

1. Can Someone Hack into Your Phone by Calling You?

This is an important question that makes people anxious - Can someone hack into their phone by calling? The simple answer to this question is "No". Even a professional can never hack your mobile with a phone call. If that is possible the world would be pretty dangerous and no one would like to pick a call.

However, through a call one can track your current location only if he is professional. But again the call must last for a significant duration because it takes time to triangulate the signals and the person can only find out the location of the tour from which the signals are coming from. So, if you're also worried that someone can hack your mobile by simply calling rest assured it is impossible.
