Has anyone had their smart phone infected by malware?  

What are some signs of an infection?


And, how can you check for one (is there such a thing as phone anti-virus or malware bytes)???

What type of phone is it?


Signs of an infection can be:


-Sudden poor battery life;

-Unusually large data usage.


There are antivirus apps out there, particularly if you have an Android phone.

The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
