Default Can someone hack your phone just by talking on the phone

Facebook has a number for tech support and I asked them a question. You could tell they had no idea what they where talking about or had no idea about Facebook. They had foreign accents and could barely understand them. Surely they can't hack my phone over a phone call. I assume they are looking for credit card numbers to try and help over the phone. Any insight

I don't believe that Facebook has a support number. You were probably talking to a scammer. Change/cancel any passwords, credit card numbers, and any other personal info you gave them and you're done.

No they can't "hack" your phone via a phone call.

I didn't give them anything. The only thing they have his my phone number. I didn't give them no Facebook credentials or anything cause I could tell they were not real Facebook techs
