3rd party access to text messages

Is it possible for a 3rd party to get access to my text messages on my mobile phone, download them and print them off without my consent or actually using my mobile handset?

Hi Surjane

 

Hope you are well! To my knowledge no-one can access your text messages without physical access to your SIM. My expertise would not lay in mobile though I must admit, so if you have any concerns at all I would recommend giving our BT Mobile team a call on 0800 678 1030, and they will be happy to provide you with any information you need.

 

Regards

Ryan

Case 1: People: No person can access your text messages to 3rd party vwithout any kind of physical access...Hacking may be an option but meagre possibility in case of text messages.As no use of data in sms.

 

Case 2: Applications: Some applications have direct access to text messages,but they are all trusted sources permitted by google play store...And i don't see any reason to doubt google though my bk experience

According to Google, only an app that has been selected as the phone's default app for making calls or sending text messages will be able to access call logs and SMS data via the SMS and Call Log permissions.

Re: 3rd party access to text messages

If you're on Android, Google Hangouts is the default for messaging with other Android (and Google) users. ... If you want a simple way to communicate with people between different devices, third-party messaging client make things easy. That's where apps like WhatsApp or Snapchat comes in
