How Do You Know if Someone is Eavesdropping on Your Mobile?
If you suspect you are being eavesdropped on, start by determining how valuable a target you are in business. The more important information you know, the greater the risk you are of someone eavesdropping on your calls.
One of the most common signs that cell phone eavesdropping in happening is, in fact, your battery life starts to last for shorter periods of time. This is due to the fact that your phone is constantly sending information to whoever is eavesdropping on your phone.
You may start to hear a buzzing sound during a phone call. You may also hear noises coming from your handset when it is not in use. These are signs that someone may be eavesdropping on your conversation. If your phone rings and no one is on the other end or you hear a faint beep, this is an indication that there is an extender on your phone line so that an outside party can listen in on the call.
What Can You Do About It?
If you suspect you are a prime target for being tapped, you will need a secured mobile phone solution to make sure no one has access to your phone conversations. One way to prevent eavesdropping is to make sure it is in a safe place where intruders can’t gain physical access.
In addition, a secured mobile should be locked with a password so that in the event someone does get a hold of your phone, they would need a password to use the phone.
To make a secured mobile out of a phone that has already been tapped, start by removing the battery when you are not using your phone. This can prevent your device from recording or transmitting any information. In addition, take your secured mobile to a professional and have any software that may be malicious removed from your device.
If all else fails, you may have to invest in a new secured mobile with a new phone number. With a new phone, you can start fresh by making sure you protect it from potential eavesdroppers.
