After reading this you'll probably wonder whether or not I should have posted to an anxiety forum of some sort, but I would rather get help from a tech support forum like this one. So yeah, I have a lot of anxiety about being hacked mainly because I'm not exactly that educated in hacking even after a few hours of looking up stuff about it. Because on DeviantArt and Twitter I've seen a few people's accounts get hacked then all of their posts got replaced with disturbing pictures and it just scares me to death just thinking about it. And I've also seen a video on youtube called "Always put Tape over your Webcam". I was too scared to even watch it all the way through.
The problem I'm having is that I took a picture of a questionable drawing. And I'm scared a hacker could of possibly hacked my phone and put it on the internet although I have no evidence that this is true. I've NEVER had any problems with the phone, it was an android phone without any kind of photo streaming service (I searched long and hard to see if it had one). The battery never drained more quickly than usual, it was never hot when it shouldn't be, the data usage and bills were always normal. No strange text messages, no ads on websites where they shouldn't be. Only downloaded from the Google Play Store and never downloaded anything bad. Yet I'm still scared it could of been hacked just for the drawing for some weird reason. I just don't know what to think because I don't know very much about hacking and what they can do. I also did a spyware and virus scan and found nothing.
I don't know if it's just paranoia/anxiety or is this something I should be worried about? It's not just this I'm worried about in terms of hacking but it's especially this. The drawing wasn't messed up or anything, it was just pretty bad and I really don't want anyone to see it. I even have trouble posting normal drawings that I've done which are legit 50x better than the other drawing I did to the internet because I'm not sure if it's good enough sometimes.
Is there any chance my phone could of been hacked still? Even with all these signs that it hasn't been hacked? I'm not asking for advice on anxiety just whether or not there is any chance it could of been hacked.
