    Yesterday when I got home, I found that my boyfriend was sneaking on our computer. So I checked the web history after he slept, I noticed that he had scanned some keylogger sites and finally paid for one android keylogger. I suspect he may install on my phone and is monitoring me. How can I know if my phone has a keylogger and how to remove it?

    I would think the easiest thing would to factory reset your phone. Password protect it as well.

    Step #1 - dump boyfriend.
    Step #2 - run antivirus/malware and see if it finds anything
    Step #3 - fxz or sbf to stock to be sure or do a factory reset(already mentioned).

    Ask him and note his expression. The best way to tell is watching his body language and go with your gut feeling. But factory reset your phone. And don't restore any recent backups. They may include the keylogger.

    if the phone was rooted, then you need to flash a factory image to be sure no app is left on it.

    we can recommend how to fix the phone problem, but sounds like you have a bigger problem to deal with.
