Computer Law/Hacked Phone and Computer


Hi.  I believe that my computer and my cell phone have been hacked/traced.  Is there a service that you can recommend that can verify who/what/when such hacking has taken place?

Good Morning Scott,

Do you have a reason to think this has happened? Do you have something on the devices that you think indicates that it may be compromised? IS it acting funny. Is information you are looking at in e-mails or text messages appearing somewhere else? Is someone telling you about htings they should not know and can only know from access to your devices? Do you have someone that you think would have a need to do this or the skills?

You can take it to most computer repair places and ask them to scan it to find out. Hiring a Forensic Person is VERY expensive (about $125 an hour) and it may turn up nothing. You can also get good software and scan yourself. It may not tell you who or when, but it can help put an end to it. Install a firewall on your computer and talk to your cellular provider about changing numbers to see if that help. Maybe switch phones to a new one. Those are all steps you can take.

If after looking at those questions, and the suggestions you still have questions let me know.
