How To Find Out Who’s Tracking You Through Your Android

Let me tell you, those days are gone when a smartphone was only used for voice communication. We are living in a generation where our smartphones are more than a powerful computer that we used to carry in our pocket.

If we talk about an Android operating system, the reason people choose Android over other mobile OS is that this platform has different kind of features for every particular purpose. Today in this virtual world, there are so many security issues like lots of viruses, malware, trojans, and keylogger’s that can influence our devices.

Most of the malware is targeted to an Android operating system because Android is now powering a majority of smartphones. Safety should always be our top priority in these cases. Here we are going to mention few short codes that will help you find the settings of your phones and to find out either your messages and information are being tracked.

We have managed to collect some of the useful codes for Android users which will help those who’re worried about being tracked.

Code 1: *#21#

This code will let you find out whether your messages, calls, and other data are being diverted. You can find details about call forwarding. You can even find out where your data, voice, fax, SMS, sync, async, Packet access, and pad access call forwarding enabled or disabled.

Code 2:  *#62#

If your friend tells you, that your number is saying no-service or no-answer, then you need to dial this code on your smartphone to find out where your calls, messages, and data are being redirected. There are possibilities that your calls are being redirected to one of your cell phone operator’s numbers.

Code 3:  ##002#

This is a universal code to deactivate all call forwarding. This will immediately switch off all the redirections from your phone. If you feel that your call is being redirected, then you can dial this code to stop the redirecting. It will be a good idea to use this code before you have to use roaming so that the money won’t be taken from your account.

Code 4: *#06#

This code is used to find the International Mobile Equipment Identifier (IMEI). This code will be very useful to find the IMEI number of your smartphone. You can note down your IMEI number in a safe place. With the help of IMEI number, you can find your phone if someone steals it.

Code 5: *#*#4636#*#* or *#*#197328640#*#*

 

This special code allows anyone to track your location and also determine whether someone is following you.

Type in the following code in dial pad and then select the section called UMTS Cell Environment, then choose UMTS RR info. Now note down all the numbers under the Cell ID.

Now move to the main menu and then click on MM info tab > Serving PLMN. Now note down the numbers under Local area code (LAC).

After noting down these two numbers open the website opencelid and select the fourth tab to the left. From there you can determine the location on the map of the basic station that your phone is connected to.

How To Protect Yourself From Spies

Above, we have listed a few codes which would help you to figure out whether you are being tracked or not. However, these codes can’t keep the hacker or spies away from you. So, you should take some appropriate steps to protect your computer against criminals and spies.
#1 Using an encrypted message is the best option to keep your phone away from spies. You can use secure messaging apps like Wickr, Telegram, Chare or Signal which encrypts all your messages.
#2 Don’t ever enable the option ‘Unknown Sources’ on your Android smartphone. The feature is been there for a reason and it provides good security to your Android. If you still choose to enable the option, make sure to disable it after using.
#3 Don’t do banking transaction from your Android smartphone. There are banking apps available in the Play Store, but they are not always the best choice. If possible, don’t store important credentials on your Android smartphone.
#4 There are lots of apps available on the web which claims to find out who’s tracking you. Those apps are often a scam and it just traps users. You should always rely upon your cell phone operator to offer you tracking services. Websites or apps that claim to find out the location of other people are almost certainly acting with criminal intent.
So, these are the 5 codes which will help you to find out more about the settings of your phone and to find out whether your messages are protected or not. Hope you like the article, share it with your friends too!

What is the difference between a direct and an indirect address instruction ?

Direct addressing means the instruction refers directly to the address being accessed. That is, the instruction encoding itself contains the address of the location. Depending on the instruction set, it may also allow computing a small index relative to the address. When used that way, you can think of that as a direct-indexed mode. (Note: Some processors call ‘direct’ mode ‘absolute’, such as the 6502.)

Indirect addressing uses an address held in a register or other location to determine what memory location to read or write. The idea here is that the instruction itself isn’t directly telling you the address to access, but rather indirectly telling the CPU where to find that address. The processor may also allow you to add a small offset to the indirect address, giving an indirect-indexed addressing mode.

What Is Defensive Programming ?

Defensive programming is a form of defensive design intended to ensure the continuing function of a piece of software under unforeseen circumstances. Defensive programming practices are often used where high availability, safety or security is needed. – WikiPedia


Introduction Defensive programming is a form of defensive design intended to ensure the continuing function of a piece of software under under unforeseen circumstances. Defensive programming practices are often used where high availability, safety or security is needed.
Advantages Defensive programming is an approach to improve software and source code, in terms of:
General qualityMaking the source code comprehensibleMaking the software behave in a predictable mannerDrawback Overly defensive programming, however, may safeguard against errors that will never be encountered, thus incurring run-time and maintenance costs. There is also the risk that the code traps or prevents too many exceptions, potentially resulting i…
