In an age when nearly everyone relies on wireless phone service, text messages, and email, tapping and electronic surveillance have become a common problem that demands personal protection. Everyone's privacy and security are at risk.

In Is My Cell Phone Bugged?, eavesdropping detection specialist Kevin D. Murray draws from his security experience and detailed research to show readers how to take control of their information security by using spybusting technology to their own advantage, preventing privacy invasions before they begin. In simple, clear-cut language, he explains the basics of counterespionage, including how to:

* Shop for a secure cordless device and avoid pre-bugged cell phones,

* Identify nineteen warning signs that your cell phone is spyware infected,

* Find the best apps to prevent smartphone tapping and information leaks,

* Protect oneself using a "Spyware Prevention Checklist",

* Catch the spy when your mobile phone is already under surveillance.

This comprehensive guide offers an array of information to help anyone--from the lay reader to the security expert--protect themselves and their families from smartphone eavesdropping.
