Part 3: Hire a Hacker to Hack a Cell Phone Remotely

Nowadays, the internet is flooded with so many hackers claiming to accomplish phone hacking and whatnot. While you may not find many genuine hackers on the regular internet, an hour or two on the dark web might get you a genuine one.

However, the cost of hiring a hacker can run very high, even in thousands of dollars. There might be some hackers willing to work for cheaper, but you never know if they are genuine or not.

There is a good chance that you hire someone, pay them, and end up losing your money. Mind you, the world is full of scams and frauds. Moreover, it is possible that the hacker you hire might use the same trick mentioned in Part 1, or the other parts of this article.

I have even heard stories of people hiring hackers and the hackers then blackmail the people after getting the hacked data. Therefore, if you go ahead with this method, take extra caution on every step.

Part 4: Using WiFi Sniffer to Hack a Cell Phone

WiFi sniffers are ethical hacking tools that hackers use to assess network vulnerabilities. However, if you have a good technical handle on things, you can use a WiFi sniffer tool to hack a cell phone remotely. There are various WiFi sniffing applications available on the internet.

A WiFi sniffer (also called a wireless packet sniffer) analyzes all the incoming and outgoing data of the phone. This can give you some useful information about what they are doing on the internet (like their internet activity).

However, this information will be present with a lot of other useless things, so you need to know how to filter out this information.

Also, it will not show you in-depth data such as their private messages, which apps like Spyier can accomplish.

Part 5: SS7 Vulnerabilities Exploit for Cell Phone Hacking

This method is a step up the technical ladder, for people who are very knowledgeable about programming and ethical hacking tools.

SS7 is a protocol that bridges the gap between two phone networks. It stands for Signalling System No. 7 and is generally implemented by your phone carrier.

As your phone carrier handles your phones and SMS messages, all this data is transferred over the SS7. You can exploit the vulnerabilities present in the SS7 protocol to extract any call or message data of the user.

However, SS7 is generally updated and monitored by security services. Therefore, you need a very high level of technical expertise to exploit these systems. Also, if you succeed, you will only get their call and message data.
