Did you jailbreak it, install OpenSSH and fail to change the default password? If not, I doubt anyone hacked into it.

Are you using a passcode lock? If not, maybe she got into your phone while you were you were sleeping or something. Without a passcode lock, she'd be free to see your browsing history, text messages, voicemail, etc. She also could have installed a GPS tracking app on it, but that's not remotely hacking into it.

I'm having trouble figuring out how you came to the conclusion your girlfriend hacked into your phone. Unless she's an uber1337 hacker, it didn't happen. Even then, I haven't heard of anything this extreme happening.

Have you asked her if she messed with your phone?

The best thing you can do to protect your phone is to restore it as new, and put a passcode lock on it. And don't jailbreak it.

Could she possibly have you mobile me password and use the "find my phone" feature to track you?

Sounds to me like you have issues that go far beyond her possibly hacking your iPhone, dude.

I don't think she hacked into your iPhone especially if your phone isn't jailbroken in the first place.

Second, if she got your password just by looking at you type it, then I can't help but think the other things she might have done behind your back. She probably has your passwords to a lot of your accounts with you not just knowing.

Third of you sound really worried like your really trying to hide something. If you weren't doing crap then who cares if she has the password right? It's not like she'll erase anything or mess with your stuff. I understand also that it's privacy yadda yaddy ya!

One solution I can think of? Change all your account passwords, backup and restore your phone, and put a lock on it. Oh and also get those screen protectors that hides and blur your screen

Problem solved. ohhh and stop doing shady things.lol

This is kind of a side note, but I think it's kind of funny how loosely the word "hacked" is used. A lot of people who jailbreak their phones say they hacked it, when in reality all they did was connect the phone to a computer and run a program that was written by a hacker. Hackers are an elite group of programmars. Jailbreaking is so easy a monkey could do it. The OP's girlfriend got a hold of his phone and snooped (and possibly installed a GPS family locator app). She didn't hack it.
