How can I tell if there is a sms tracker/key logger on my phone?

There's no perfect way of doing it, but you can start by installing a good antivirus app and seeing what it finds in the initial scan. Here's our list of the best Android antivirus apps:

Then if you really want to be thorough about it, go to Settings, then Apps, then look through the "Downloaded" tab. These are all of the apps that didn't come pre-installed on your phone, so basically everything that's been installed since you first set the phone up. If you find any app in this list that you didn't install yourself, just tap it, then press "Uninstall" on the screen that comes up next.
