Check your phone for unwanted apps

Sometimes, software can be installed on your phone or computer without your knowledge. It’s a good habit to occasionally check the list of apps installed on your devices and make sure you recognize everything on there. If you see something that looks unfamiliar or you no longer use, uninstall it. Be sure to check the “permissions” for all your apps. This will tell you what the app can access and what it can do with the data it collects from you. Make sure the permissions the app requires match its purpose. If something looks suspicious, uninstall it immediately.
