How can you tell if your phone is tapped by the police
Signs your phone is tapped (by the police or otherwise) are most likely to appear on a cell phone. Look for unexplained battery usage, screen flashes & odd activity on your bill. Popular methods that DON’T work to determine if you’re bugged (including landlines) include looking for any tampering to your phone lines. Today everything is digital, not like old school spy movies. Also fake is calling a certain number & listening for a solid or broken tone. These tones have nothing to do with detecting a bug.
