I am not tech saavy and concerned about spyware being on my phone, and not being aware.
I am also wondering whether, (under the umbrella of spyware), others can establish Remote Access to my phone? (ability to violate my privacy: emails, texts, pull off "Man-in the-Middle attacks, change settings to phone FUNCTIONS, i.e. my camera: creating a one-way "web cam", finding your location, etc, etc).
Thanks so much for any guidance you/CCM can give; including any knowledge from the CCM Community.

Yes it is all possible. That is why you employ locks on screens. Physical security has to be comprimised before electronic security can be. Keep in control over your device at all times, and do not give out passwords if you are concerned.
