Amnesty International released a tool to check for Pegasus spyware on iPhone and Android phones.

Tool analyses mobile device backups and checks for spyware marks.

Beware of using third-party security tools

Third-party tools might also contain malicious code. Use at your own risk. Check the sources for better understanding of the code itself.
