    "Apple provides a great read on how to re-take control of your Apple account. It doesn't tell you who hacked it or how to find out who did it, but allows you to help verify your identity so that data can be restored to the appropriate person."

    "Privacy Scanner is a good way to find out if your phone and various online accounts have been compromised. The app is easy to download and install, and it scans for privacy invasions like surveillance apps. It works pretty well, but is not necessarily 100% accurate or a comprehensive solution. If you think your privacy might be compromised, this is a good beginning step to find out."

    "Ah malwarebytes how many times have you saved me with your awesome program. This sadly is not a way to figure out who hacked your account. This is an app to scan for viruses and apps that are sending out bad data. This Is not a thing you need to figure out who hacked you."
