Hello guys, 


I have a problem. I think that my wife spy on me using hidden spy apps. I am not an expert and I can't detect such apps. How can I check my phone, system, storage for such apps?

Hi dkohler1919

How to find hidden apps on Android phone.

1 Tap the 'App Drawer' icon on the bottom-center or bottom-right of the home screen.

2 Next tap the menu icon. ...
3 Tap 'Show hidden apps (applications)'. ...
4 If the above option does not appear there may not be any hidden apps;

If nothing is found:

Go here and scroll down to "15 signs to tell if your cell phone is being spied."


Go to the Google Play store - download the following security programs suitable for your type of phone and run  a scan with each of them.

Hope this helps.

Rocket Grannie.
