Phone charging glitch
Ok, so my dad accidentally reset his phone. He did so because he was convinced he had been “hacked”. His phone stopped charging and displayed the message “plug into usb to charge”. Sound like a bad plug, right? Well the phone would charge fine if turned off but not while turned on. Then the battery would rapidly drain once it was turned on. He is convinced that some sort of malware was draining the battery and trying to get him to connect the phone to his computer. So plausible or tech paranoia?
