I’ve tried an apps called Network connection for monitors apps, but nothing. Also, the phone doesn’t have root. I’ve searched all the files and there is any suspicious files.

Yassir_Zhd: My friend, you are not giving us enough information to be able to help you. There’s a lot of people here with a lot of knowledge and goodwill. Best of all Android phones are endlessly hackable and there’s so much information out there about getting into them and modifying the system. But with just barely comprehensible and panicked statements, even if someone wants to help there’s nothing they can do for you. Help us help you.

I’m gonna ask some annoying questions sorry, I can’t promise that I will be able to solve this but let’s give it a try.

Do you have any ide about how you got hacked? Did your “friend” have physical access to your phone or did you install anything this person sent you? Do you use any web applications connect to your phone apps like whatsap web, telegram or similar where you can read your messages on your computer?

Could you check if any apps drain more power (battery) than usual? Any app despite how harmless you think it is.

Could you install a network monitor like glasswire or a similar app to see if any app uses more bandwidth then usual? You could also try something like an app called network connections to list what ip addresses specific apps talk to.

Edit*
Like Emile stated above. Don’t panic the harm is already done. Oh and by the way make sure to save all or any proof that your “friend” sends you about this on a cold storage (not your phone) It can be useful later on.

change your passwords everywhere from another device and do not sign back in again until you are in the clear. Even if it’s a “friend” at the moment this person could turn against you at any time, don’t make it easy.

Flash the phone, i mean make a new installation of the phone firmware. After that change the passwords of your accounts that you previously login on the phone.

What information of yours did he have of you? Also how is he even a friend at this point. And if he’s a friend just tell him to stop

After hard resting your phone, Create evidence of your friend threatening you (record/screenshot) and backup them if he crosses the limit just go to the police and tell them what happened (don’t tell him before that you will go police he might prepare for it). Don’t go too deep about your personal info about what he has if you don’t want too because anyway he is not going to say that to police and Police will contact him to check him. Mostly he will say “no I don’t about this” but if in the worst case he puts them online his life is fucked. But this is the best solution to solve this forever, Police will also try to delete and remove your personal info as soon as possible but make sure you push them.

Your friend must have installed a android rat ( Remote Access Trojan ) so go to your installed apps and uninstall all the apps that you don’t know or you have not installed other than system apps. he might hide the app from the app drawer but cannot hide it from installed apps. make sure you don’t mess with the system apps or else your phone is completely lost.

did your friend pwned your phone email account? i think you have to make new password on every accounts using another device to prevent your friend doing another scam.
buy another phone if you don’t have enough knowledge to technically clean it.
if your friend threaten you with already taken materials, and you have enough (strong) evidence of what he did, i suggest you to have the police involved.

Check for any WIFI App Installed and is it having Administrator Rights?

Or Once Check all the Administrator Apps and if you find any suspicious app uninstall it.

Also check whether Play Protect is turned on in Play Store it will protect you all malicious apps. It will Automatically detect the malicious app.

Hope this Helps.

Cheers!!
