Someone has hacked into my Wi-Fi network

Someone is on the same Wi-Fi network as I am. I believe it's a family member that knows everything about me has taken over all my emails, taken all photos, wiped all credentials & put some kind of spyware, malware or ransomware on all of my devices after he rooted his phone & copied my SIM card information & my IMEI #s to each phone/ device to where I am not the administrator & made my devices somewhat "bricked" even swapping out operating systems & rerouting my phone calls to his phone. How can I remove this from going from 1 device to another?  How can I protect myself against this? What can I do? I am not tech savvy & he is a robot programmer.  😥

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

Change your Wi-Fi password? Setup your own dedicated network? Move? There’s always a solution. It just depends on how much effort you’re willing to put forth.

    What type of phone/mobile is it, like Android/iOS based? You mentioned, s/he is your family member, so why did not you talk with that person in a straight way? Probably this is your phone/mobile. Hopefully you have taken all necessary backups like files/photos/videos etc. and keep them in a safe place. If not, first of all you take all necessary backups, if you still have full access your phone. Next do a reset (either by hard or soft) & change all passwords (social network/email etc.) with complex ones (like letters/numbers/symbols etc.) and after resetting leave to attend the phone for some days and observe that if the person can access again this mobile/phone.

    Also remember if they are using your wi-fi they need to be in close proximity to your router.. Even with some routers you can have dead spots in your home. They can average about 150 feet indoors (open area with not a lot of walls/floors) to about 400 ft outdoors. That means they have to be close. Change you wi-fi router password for starters but if he is skilled in coding robots, there may be little you can do to keep him out unless you get professional help.

    One more thing, in general, no virus can be affected to any smartphone either it is Windows/iOS/Android. They have such a built-in mechanism that can prevent from virus infection. It is not necessary to install any external anti virus tool/optimization tool specially for mobile phones.
