Our digital selves, more and more, are becoming part of our full identity. The emails we send, the conversations we have over social media -- both private and public -- as well as photos we share, the videos we watch, and the websites we visit all contribute to our digital forms. As mobile devices are now a common tool for social interactions, it is not just ad agencies, data miners, and surveillance-hungry powers that want to keep track of us.

When a government agency, country, or cybercriminals decide to peek into our digital lives, there are generally ways to prevent them from doing so. Virtual private networks (VPNs), end-to-end encryption and using browsers that do not track user activity are all common methods. Sometimes, however, surveillance is more difficult to detect -- and closer to home. This guide will run through what spyware is, what the warning signs of infection are, and how to remove such pestilence from your mobile devices.

Thanks for sharing! Ironic article: title says how to kill spyware and stalkware, but inside the article it mentions the exact name of the spyware apps and links to the official site

Changing the title, which I don't do as a rule, had me wondering if someone would have a problem with it so I assumed it was your thrust but after rereading your post and the article I agree, ironic. As CyberGhost used to say, stay frosty :emoji_v:
