    Nowadays this is a hot topic. So how did you know that your phone is hacked? Is your phone malfunctioning/what symptoms there that indicated like that? What make/model your phone? Have you updated recently?

    Give us some details on why you think you have been hacked. List specific problems and the make and model phone. There may just be a virus causing a problem and not necessarily a hack. Sometimes these come when downloading questionable apps.

    This is a very common question asked here a few time a month lately. What makes you think you have been hacked? What problems are you having and when did they start? Have you downloaded any apps recently? If so which ones? This is one cause of issues with peoples phones. Some apps ask for permissions and we just click ok so we can use the app. Those authorizations to features of the phone are what causes most intrusions.

    In general, anti-virus is not necessary for mobile phone either it is based on Android/iOS/Windows. They have all a good built-in mechanism that can help to protect from virus. It is our that is common people fault that, by mistake we forget to clear cache/browsing history/using weak password/typing password/bank a/c no, customer ID in front of other etc.etc.

    In general, you can't know and likely won't know unless you learn that data that is only available through your phone is used in some unusual way. Beyond that, you'll need a couple years of fairly focused, and possibly dedicated, study before an answer can be given to you.

    Of course, you can hand your phone to a professional to have it analyzed. There's a chance that the professional will be able to show you some evidence. That's the most likely way you can tell, and it might not have a good chance of success.
