    My phone is seriously hacked and has been for a while reasoning pictures they don't even take it tells me I don't have Wi-Fi even though I don't need it the scariest part is I guess somebody is watching me because whenever I might take a picture or I look at pictures that I did not take they are in my house and sometimes there are people in them now what when how do you make sense of that will the police do anything and I wonder if I should have a need to be worried
    Anybody ever experienced anything like this in their phone being hacked?

    Can you explain more clearly? From your post it seems to be that your reason for thinking your phone is hacked is something muddled about "pictures they don't even take" (does this mean the camera isn't working?) and the phone telling you you don't have WiFi, which doesn't add up to evidence of hacking to me (many other possible causes). And then some very confused stuff about pictures that I think might be saying you have photos taken in your house that you don't remember taking, but the wording is extremely muddled so I am not sure I am reading it correctly.

    So can you explain exactly what you are seeing. Use short sentences, one thing at a time, and include punctuation. I'm not being a grammar nazi here, it's just that it's very hard to help if it is not clear what you are saying.

    If your phone has been hacked (and that's still an "if" at this point) the most likely way was through your Google account. So be careful about using that. You'll need to gain control of it again and secure it, and you must not use a device that has been compromised when doing this. But before going through that I'd rather understand what your situation actually is.

    Normally phone are hacked through the Wi-Fi, as you said you are not using Wi-Fi then you first have to turn off your mobile internet.

    I -am- being a grammar nazi: punctuation is your friend! Please use it early and often.

    One long, rambling, run-on sentence, with no punctuation or capitalization, is very hard to comprehend.

    We want to help you! But you're going to have to help us first, by making your questions clear and readable.

    As both @Hadron and I have requested, please write your questions in a readable format. For example:

    - write out one issue here
    - write another issue here
    - write another issue here
    - and so on

    Or, write one issue here, and put a period after it. Start a new sentence to explain another issue; put a period after it. Start another sentence...and so on.

    The way you're running everything together makes it impossible to figure out exactly WHAT is happening!

    Have you tried a Factory reset, changing your GMail password, and enabling 2Factor Authentication for it? That should b enough to keep others out of your phone (unless they have access to the phone itself).

    If someone has the credentials to your Google account, they can do all sorts of things that might make it appear you no longer have control of your phone. In this post ... https://androidforums.com/threads/please-help.1316319/#post-7928596 ... I have already advised another member who's account is compromised, how to take back control.
