I use apps to call my friends which are free but use a wifi connection.

However constantly my internet cuts off disconnecting the call and the light on my router flashes and it cuts off.

This obviously must happen for a reason so I am wondering, is someone hacking my internet?

Could be you have a dodgy phone line with interference.

Almost certainly not a hacker.

The intention of someone to hack someone else's internet* would be to use it for themselves, not prevent it working.

*in the case of a personal home - a business would be different

Another point is that personal internet connections are extremely difficult to hack nowadays assuming you have WPA encryption (which is default).

No hacker would bother to do that to somebody insignificant. They'd use your internet for themselves or hack your social media or leak your nudes or something.

More likely that your internet service is just crap.
