Are you Hacked?

Today i got a notification on my Android phone that i was connected to my Tomtom device via MyDrive.
I was litterally 10miles away from it. The thing is that the device was shutdown.

Are you hacked?

    hi @VikramK thanx for your reply:
    Why would an app which is closed because the service is not needed just pop up out of nowhere saying:
    "You are connected to your TomTom via cloud."
    (the device was shutdown ánd i was 10 miles away from it.) It seems somehow a session was hijacked.

    (One of the three default Android notifications which are conn. via Bluetooth, via Wifi, or cloud)

    Hi @Robski0031
    I don't this could be a hacking-related thing. MyDrive is a cloud-connected application and it is important to know what exactly was the notification message?

    Anything you save on the device or the app gets synched in the background when the app is connected to the internet.

    Regards, Vikram
