    Hidden spy application is on my Samsung note 9, installed by someone to monitor my movement. How can I identify it and uninstall it?

    Welcome to Android Central! Statistically speaking, it's highly unlikely that anyone wants to spy on your location using spyware. Besides, most people give away their location on a daily basis by posting on social media. Are you sure that's not how people know where you are?

    What is the spying app or software? How did you find it? Does it has a name?

    About 99.99999% of "there's spyware on my phone" reports here turn out to be something else. As B. Diddy said, you're posting things about yourself that you don't want others to know. Or you think you'r alone with someone when you tell them something - but there's someone listening. Or something else.

    If you're an important high-level government employee, it's possible, but then your IT people could clear it up. But most people aren't targets of spies or hackers. (And installing spyware on your phone, unless someone had the phone and you didn't see what they were doing, is close to impossible. [Which means that if someone asks to see your phone, tell them to use their own.])

    I hv confirmed it already. I think it is an application like FlexiSPY and you know it can be hidden.

    If someone was clever enough to get this installed on your phone without your knowledge, then your best bet is to do a factory reset, and then set the phone up as a brand new phone (i.e., without restoring a backup). Make sure you have a good screen lock set up, and make sure all of your sensitive passwords are strong and difficult for other people to guess.
