    hmmm not sure if sniff tapping is a term? Network sniffing or packet sniffing certainly exists, where someone monitors all the data going through a network.

    Phone tapping I only really know of through the movies.

    If you're concerned, just change your passwords. The one for your internet account with your isp (can probably do this through their homepage) and the administrator password on your router/modem (go to http://10.1.1.1 or http://192.128.1.1 and look for a change password option).

    It's pretty unlikely that someone has targeted you though.
