Question: Can your phone get hacked by opening a text message?

Merely opening the message wouldnt do any harm, but if you click on those suspicious links, you might be redirected to some untrustworthy webpages or sites. Some texts messages might also contain links that can trigger the download of an unwanted app.

Can opening a text infect your phone?

Text messages are just one of the ways that criminals try to persuade people to download malware. Simply opening and reading an SMS text message is unlikely to infect your phone, but you can get a virus or malware if you download an infected attachment or click a link to a compromised website.

Is opening a text message safe?

Text messages (also known as SMS, short message service) and email are both safe, but have limitations to their security and privacy. Text messages and voice are encrypted while in the air.

Is Messenger safe from hackers?

Message requests are even safer now and route messages from unconnected users to a dedicated folder with safety and privacy protections that ensure these unconnected users cannot call you or see your online status unless you reply.
