Help!

Someone in my contacts on my mobile phone has received a text from me that I definitely did not send.

What do I do?

If you are 100% certain you didn't send it, you need to check any apps you have installed with access permission to SMS messages.

I'd also download and run Malwarebytes too as a precaution for any malware on your device.

You haven’t left the phone unattended so that someone else could have sent it, thinking they were being funny?

@kategorgeous  Was it just one text to one contact? Without wishing to seem nosy, what was the nature of the text?
