Camera App fails at important moment

Long stort short…

Strangers approach my private property unexpectedly and harass/disturb me. I grab my smart phone (android) and press camera hardware button > video record … and the app instantly errors and fails, multiple times. I wait till the strangers leave, then i install FreeDCam and simple camera from fdroid, both of those apps error as well. Either microphone didnt work or ir crashes completely anytime i open. i don’t believe in coincidence… very strange the camera app failed as strangera approached. the camera app has never done that before, thou9gh i did not use it in important situations. i suspect hacking?

What do i do to ensure my camera does not fail next time? Is it possible to even secure smartphones these days?
