My Android was hacked. Was rooted with spyware. Got a new iPhone. I believe I’m still being monitored. I’ve factory reset. But still think I’m being spied on. Is this possible?

    In a word. No.


    In reality is it possible? Sure it is, but unless you are someone of international import, the answer's going to be no.

    Why do you still think you're being "spied on"?

    @VioletChepil mind Questionizing this, please?

    @Pooh is right, there's no way that this can 'carry over'.  You're talking about two different 'Operating Systems' facially, so the only thing that you should technically migrate to your new iOS is the cloud data that Google stores on their servers for your device.

    Also assuming you are using the stock Apple iOS on your iPhone and not some variant.  Its generally not a good idea to use a hacked operating system on an I-device.

    Do you mean someone had access to your Google credentials?

    @Pooh 's on par with this one, do you have absolute control of your Google account right now?
    It's recommended that you change your password and enable 2-factor authentication.  Once you've accomplished that, then sign in to your account with your new mobile device.

    Looking at your last message, I suspect 1) lots of typo's, and 2) the keyboard is using the wrong Language - perhaps Int'l English instead of US English (if that's what you would normally use). If it's Windows 10 perhaps try holding the Windows button while pressing space bar
