How to see if someone has been snooping on your devices

With so much sensitive data and access to so many apps and services on our phones and laptops, it makes sense that we don’t want unwelcome visitors snooping around.

Investigating a potential breach doesn’t take a forensics kit, and you can easily run some basic checks to help you figure out if you were a victim to an intruder.
