Stop a Cell Hack
By Micah Halpern

Tuesday February 8, 2022
I've Been Thinking:

Cell phone hacking has become a big and all-consuming topic of interest and of debate in Israel.

Israeli technology has been utilized to hack phones across the world and also, to the chagrin of Israelis, at home.

In Israel, police were hacking – among others, numerous politicians and their families. And they did it without court orders. And they’ve been doing it for a while. In fact, it may have been evidence gathered from former Prime Minister Netanyahu’s son’s cell phone that furthered the police investigation against his father.

Kaspersky Labs, world renowned hackers themselves, has given Israelis a quick set of tools to make certain that they are not hacked.

# 1 Restart device daily

# 2 Delete unknown apps

# 3 Keep apps up to date

# 4 Do not click on anything unfamiliar

Also, iPhone users should cancel iMessage and Facetime and they should not use Safari or Google Chrome.

If a hacker really wants in, they will get in. But this advice will help protect all of us from cell phone hackers.
