Nowadays, smartphones also have a camera, through which photos and videos can be recorded. Now the question arises whether cyber criminals can also access the camera of our phones.

The answer is yes, in which many cyber criminals install spyware apps or any malware. With this, those hackers can easily hack the phone camera and harm it.

Today we are going to tell you the ways to protect yourself from such hacking and spying. There is a special feature in Android phones, with the help of which users can easily see when the camera is being used.

Nowadays when the camera and mic are on in an Android phone, a light is seen on the right side on the top corner of its display, or the icon of the camera/mic will be visible.

If you are not using the camera, but still you see a camera or dot icon on the top side of your mobile screen, then understand that your mobile has been hacked.
