    Delete some apps

    You will have to do a quick search on your phone. Remember that app you downloaded one day for a reason you now forget? Here it is! Probably these kinds of apps are freezing your Android phone. Also, if you have a hacker/virus problem, this method can be very helpful. There is a chance that you have a malicious app on your device and hadn't noticed it before doing this cleanup.

    "It's simple, it's obvious and it's clearly true. Whenever I get an awesome brand new phone it's lightening fast, never freezes and has great battery life. And then... I install apps. And there is freezing, crashing, rebooting, battery sucking like crazy. Not fun. So delete some apps until your device works better and you have found your culprit. It is just a plain good idea."

DID YOU KNOW?

If you've been looking for ways on how to remove a hacker from your phone, it's probably best to start with your social media accounts. Yes, because they might be putting you at risk. You may have heard it a million times: Be careful what you put out there and keep personal information private. But while this may seem like a no-brainer piece of advice to follow, many people still fall prey to cyber-attacks. Well, in this brave new digital age, everybody is vulnerable to cybercrime. In fact, did you know that 600, 000 Facebook accounts are compromised each day during log-in? So, what do you do if your phone is hacked, you might ask. Of course, you can check out this list and follow the measures it suggests. But still, as the old adage goes, prevention is better than cure.

First things first, remember that nothing posted on social media can be completely deleted. Operative word: completely. That means you can remove messages, pictures, or status updates all you want and hackers will still find a way to retrieve them. So, if you've mistakenly put your Social Security or credit card number before, it's best to tighten up your online privacy with security apps. Speaking of security, changing your password with unique characters on a regular basis could also be a way to stave off potential hackers. Sure, it might be a tedious process, but you can try using password storage manager apps for some help. Better safe than sorry! Lastly, as much as possible, try to avoid using social media on public Wi-Fi hotspots. Doing so allows anyone to access your account or worse, your phone. A little bit of restraint certainly wouldn't hurt!
