Am I being hacked?

Hi all,

 

I have a BB curve 9360.

 

For some time I suspect that my partner has hacked my phone because suddenly she knows about text messages I have received even when I have been out of the country and there would be no way she would have had access to them by any other means.

 

Is just with text messages but doesnt appear to be with whatsapp or any other application or email.

 

Can this be possible? and if so, how can I find out if she is doing this to me? I want to confront her about it but I cant do it without proof...

It's not hacked.

 

On your O2 mobile account, change your password where you access your SMS messages online if there is such a place.

On your BlackBerry , look at Options > Device > Applications. See any suspicious apps there? List them here if you're not sure.

Re: Am I being hacked?

thank you for answering so quickly!

 

ive checked my O2 account and changed passwords but I dont have (or i think I dont have) access to my texts online. She doesnt know the contents just who i have texted so maybe she just got into my billing and checked there.

My apps are the normal ones that come with the bb apart from facebook and shazam, so nothing weird there.

 

Thanks again

Re: Am I being hacked?

1. You're probably right. So you've changed that password on your O2 account now and she is still knowing who you text to?

 

2. Perhaps so, I don't know if you don't list them, so since you are positive, you can be certain that you've not been hacked.

Re: Am I being hacked?

no, ive just changed the passwords and the memorable information of both my emails and my o2 account,  just in case. I guess someone can get into the account even if she doesnt know the password with the memorable information? eg mothers maiden name

Re: Am I being hacked?

Yea, I could guess that password if I knew you, any of 100 friends and family.

Mother's maiden name is in the top ten worst passwords.
