What to do next
Giving the signs of a hacked smartphone is useful for recognition, but including advice on what to do next to recover would be even better.  So, what to do next?  Here are some ideas on what to do if you suspect that your phone or other mobile device is infected:
  • install and run mobile anti-malware software (preferably from more than one vendor)
  • remove any apps that you don't recognize
  • consider wiping the device, restoring factory settings, and reinstalling apps from trusted appstores
  • use mobile security software on your device going forward
  • consider showing the device to a professional, especially if you think it might have been rooted
  • seek the cause of the infection, if possible, and take training on preventing future incidents
  • work with your incident response team to determine the extent of any breach of confidential data and how to respond
  • be more careful in the future
