"Help! I've been hacked"

Oh no, it's the worst feeling ever... your computer or phone keeps acting weird, or maybe someone's broken into your Facebook... Did you get tricked into installing a bad bit of software? Has someone taken over your Email? Do you feel like your activity is being tracked? Sometimes not being certain is even worse!

In the last few decades the internet has grown from being the domain of a bunch of students, nerds and military into a global phenomenon, where every type of activity and person is now online... even the criminals. It can be scary using technology that's so complicated and - lets be honest - you don't really understand how it works.

The team at WhatIsMyBrowser.com is frequently sent frantic and confused emails from people asking for help because they are (or think they are) hacked. So much so that we decided to create a whole section on our site to help people with these kinds of problems. Our team of writers and developers have been using the internet since the 90's and have fixed every sort of computer and security problem imaginable; so don't worry, you're in safe hands.

This section is very new and we have big plans for it; if you have any questions or suggestions for it then don't hesitate to use our Contact Us form to let us know what problem you have or what you'd like to see here.
