  1. Smartphones can read the information of your credit card if you put them near. It sounds interesting, but what happens if someone tries to abuse this fact? They can intentionally put their phone near your purse and get all the information needed. Unfortunately, you cannot do this with all credit cards. The new ones that work without the need of any type of contact with the terminal can be hacked. Because of their nature, it is safer to keep them in lead-lined wallet. Better safe and sound, right?
  2. 3D spy is in the second place in the top five most impressive smartphone hacks list. If you are in a cinema and watching a 3D movie, it is possible that someone can use your phone to spy on you. There is an application that takes the picture of your home or work place, and can later abuse them. It is the perfect app for burglars, who can see the insides of your home, check your schedule, and see when you are not at home. The most terrifying thing is that we are not even aware what is happening with our phone.
  3. Turn the computer on. This is one of the most interesting of the top five most impressive smartphone hacks.

  4. Spying phone? It is possible for your phone to spy on you while you are typing on your computer. It does not seem so harmful, right. What about when you are typing your passwords, credit card information, or private messages? Are you scared now? The way that it does it is why it is on the top five most impressive smartphone hacks list.

  5. Making the specific vibrations is in the last place of our top five most impressive smartphone hacks list. iPhone users have a great opportunity to play with their phone vibration settings, and to make a specific pattern for every contact from the phonebook. Amazing, right?
