How to see if someone is spying on your phone

 

Swatting is the act of deceiving an emergency service (via such means as hoaxing an emergency services dispatcher ) into sending a police and 9-1-1 response team to another person's address, based on the false reporting of a serious law enforcement emergency, such as a bomb threat, murder, hostage-taking or other alleged incident. The term derives from SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics), a specialized type of police unit in the United States and many other countries carrying military-style equipment such as door breaching weapons, submachine guns and assault rifles .

Swatting has been associated with online harassment campaigns, and episodes ranging from small events to large incidents, from a single fabricated police report meant to discredit an individual as a prank or personal vendetta [3] to the deployment of bomb squads , heavily-armed SWAT units and other police units and the concurrent evacuations of schools and businesses.

Swatting has origins in prank calls to emergency services. Over the years, callers used increasingly sophisticated techniques to direct response units of particular types. In particular, attempts to have SWAT teams be dispatched to particular locations spawned the term 'swatting'. The term was used by the FBI as early as 2008. [7]
