How can I prevent my phone from being tapped?

I was on a “question and answer” forum, REDIFF, to be exact. When I was on a phone conversation with a friend, the same conversation was being asked in question forum, continuously for 10 minutes. After noticing this, I kept the conversation going, but changed the topic. The questions on that forum kept changing too, according to my conversation. This scared me, and I knew for sure my phone was tapped. Please help me!

    If you are being tap, their must be reason for it so; therefore, get burn phone meaning phone that can be buy from anywhere in store, it runs by mins and when you set it up you don't have to give any of your information out on it but once you call land line that is being tap then your phone will be tap once again. So buy two burn phones just in cast. I wish you best luck

    This is true ! Ive had the same problems on my home phone. People calling from a fimilar number but it wasnt them.

    Sometimes robbers call you and ask information, then they call the other person as if it were you, telling them to meet you. Scary !

    I suggest we all hide in our house and lock the doors and windows.

    Cell phones are easy to tap these days if someone has access to your for a few minutes while you are not around. Chances are that what you described is a coincedence but anything is possible these day. The best way to rid your phone of malicious spyware is to perform a factory reset.

    Long shot here, but, you don't happen to have an older cordless landline do you? I used to listen to my neighborhood phone conversations on a simple sxanner.

    Your phone is not being tapped. Here's what's actually happening:

    You're imagining a connection where this is none; the human mind is adept at doing this. I once spoke to cookie monster on a live tv broadcast. He answered everything I said, and was talking JUST to me. How awesome is that? I was 6.

    You're not crazy; you're just attributing patterns between the forum posting and your own conversation, then theorising as to how this would be possible. If you take a moment to think logically about this, you'll see it's just unrelated.

    Preventing a phone tap, from what I know is not possible. However, detecting a phone tap can be accomplished by talking to your service provider. Depending on your kind of phone (cell/landline), there are software tools you can use to detect a phone tap though they seem to either not work very well or require you to have a high telecommunications technology aptitude. Google 'Phone tap detectors' to check them out.

    Is this a home phone or cell phone? If it is a home phone, call the phone company and ask them to check the lines for you. If it is a cell phone that is a smart phone, install antivirus software like Lookout Mobile to see if there is any malware on your device. Best advice either way would be to call the phone company and let then know what is going on.

    Symptoms of phone tapping -

    Cellphone battery gets warmed while even not in use,

    It lights up and there are beep sounds during phone conversations.

    Tapping of phone takes place when your phone is connected to any network and some spyware software is installed in it.To prevent this,switch off your phone when not in use and if possible,switch off bluetooth,Wi-Fi while using your phone.
