(KMOV) – Hackers have figured out a way to break into your cell phone with spyware software that can do anything from listen to your calls to read emails and texts or even take pictures of you.

Some Internet sites sell the software and some sites even market the programs as a way to make sure your significant other is remaining loyal.

Here are some warning signs: look to see if your screen lights up for no reason, or if the flash goes off without taking a picture, or if the battery drains quickly, you could have spyware.

The best way to protect yourself is to put a password on your phone and don’t open emails unless you know the sender.
