I'm very wet behind the ear as they saw I just got this smartphone. About 3 to 4 months now and I know someone is doing something to it because all of a sudden when I'm typing or a task, it stops and shuts off my phone that is / also when I'm typing lets say like now their able to read this. How is this possible and how can I stop it? Also, can I gather info so I prosecute how would I go about this since its probably too late.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Depending on the OS, you may also consider checking your phone for malware using a product such as avast or Webroot.

    It's almost certain that it has nothing to do with the security of your phone, and it's also almost certain that no one is seeing anything you type except the person you send it to. It's much more likely that there are flaws in your phone, either OS or hardware.   No matter what, it's even more certain that there's nothing that you can do except take it to an appropriate phone technician or professional. Perhaps send it to the vendor to get it fixed.   There is a very small chance that something you downloaded contained malware of some type. A professional could possibly track it down and even clean your phone. It's very unlikely that any kind of prosecution would ever happen.   Tom
