Lately I’ve been noticing some suspicious behaviour on my iphone. Advice of any sort would be much appreciated.

Reasons I think I’m being hacked:
- I’ll be randomly listening to a song on YouTube and it frequently pauses out of the blue. Today, it suddenly switched to another YouTube video.Pillow talk Zayn Malik good song but I DID NOT press it. Also, a random message box popped up and I SAW IT TYPING RANDOM LETTERS.
- I keep getting a notification on phone for 2 new voicemails but when I click it’s nothing.
- random numbers call me ( I have screenshots, it’s saved as a bunch of letters rather than a number)

I’m worried because I have a banking app on my phone and saved passwords.

This honestly sounds worrying, behaviour that you did not do happens and random pop ups that could be created from adware. Have you run a virus scan?

If I were you, I’d delete the saved passwords and banking apps from my phone just to be on the safe side. Then, run a virus check.

Uh oh. No I haven’t, is there an app that can run that?

Best and easiest thing to do is just to factory reset the entire iPhone. It will get rid of anything that someone might have installed to gain control of your phone.

Use iTunes to back up all the images and stuff and use WhatsApp to create a back up of all the messages/images/videos. Your iMessages can be backed up to iCloud or iTunes as well.

Unfortunately Apple doesn't an an inbuilt antivirus because they said Apple is "almost impossible to be hacked into", you will have to manually download one. Check out one called Avira.


Or to be on the safer side you could just use the nuclear option which is the factory reset like SyedN said
