  • Connect your phone to new Wi-Fi and connect your laptop or computer to new modem.
  • Download a packet sniffer tool which analyzes the exchanged data of computer; for example, type terms like (Open source packet sniffer). After installing packet sniffer, activate it and send an email.
  • After sending the email, many data will be displayed. Now, pay more attention to Internet addresses.If you are under espionage, the email will be sent to different IPswhich differ from the IP of your Internet service provider.You can search (IP lookup) in internet to distinguish the IP of your ISP from other IPs.

Note that some spyware send information periodically and do not send all copies at once. Therefore, it is better that you connect your device to computer for 24 hours to make sure about security of your phone.
