It has never been easier than it is today, with modern cell phones and the various online services they bring with them, to cheat on your spouse. No longer cheater has to spend free days trying to coordinate the best time to meet up with someone other than his spouse, dialing landline numbers and getting apartments for rent. All man or woman need today is an Iphone or Android smartphone, and some apps, and it is easy as anything to set up a secret meeting.
But as you know, there are two sides to this story as well. While ways to cheat on your spouse have advanced, the ways to catch a cheating girlfriend, boyfriend, wife or husband have grown as well. You can always clear out your text messages, delete your call logs as soon as you’re done talking to your secret ‘friend’, and save his or her name under aliases, but at the end of the day we assure you that your spouse can find a way to track the signs of your activities and bust you.
That said, here is a list of the ten most creative and effective ways to spy on your spouse:
Turn into a Full Fledged Spy
The most effective yet dangerous method. If nothing else works or if you just want complete access to your cheating partner’s phone, start using a spyware app. Simply install one on spouse’s Android or IPhone device, and you will have instant access to everything they do on their device. Access to text messages, call log, emails and GPS location, everything imaginable from a monitoring software can be had by you.
Some apps like these were not made for this exact purpose, while having other great uses as well. Whatever your concern about your spouse’s loyalty, using a monitoring app is the ultimate way to bust them once and for all, although you’ll need to beware of all possible legal consequences.
Tell who that Avid Caller is
Spouses who cheat are smart, or at least smart enough to change the name of their secret affair to something else on their smartphones. This allows cheating spouse to act as if it’s a call from work or from an old friend every time that person calls. While no software can show you how to reveal the true identity of the caller, there are apps that can track his or her contact list and call logs to help you tell exactly how many times a day this ‘work’ number calls your spouse. All you have to do next is put that number in your own mobile, and catch this mystery caller is for yourself.
Record their Nightly Sounds
If you want to go a little old fashioned, you can use one of the many free apps available for spouse’s smartphone that will act as a sound recorder through the night. Just look for a tool that works in standby mode, and leave your cell lying around your spouse. It will record all sounds through the night, giving you enough proof to confront your partner.
Dig into a Little History
Ah the apps! Making life easier every single day. Whether you need to rent a hotel room or navigate your way to a cheap apartment you’re supposed to go meet your ‘friend’, apps can help you do that in a matter of minutes.
What apps also do, quite often behind the scenes, is log all your data and keep it safe for enhancing future experience. What this means is that your spouse can very easily tap into one of those apps and pull out all the information needed to catch you. While you are always careful of removing affair signs from your browser history, chances are that you are one of those who don’t really know about app history and how it can be used to thwart your cheating life.
Initials are all you Need
You must appreciate when your computer remembers your search terms and fills up the search and address bars when you type in the first few letters of a website. You will appreciate it even more when you realize that you can use this to track who your husband or wife is sending emails to as well. Typing in the initials in an email client, for example, will bring up a list of all the frequent contacts with those letters, which may just have that one person you were suspecting. You can even find out how many emails have been sent between that person and your spouse, and what those messages contain.
Getting Caught Up with the Cloud
Both women and men don’t quite understand the concept of cloud storage. It’s very simple to upload all your secret photos and selfies to the cloud and delete them from your computer, in the hopes of keeping your cheating memories safe while also avoiding the risk of your spouse seeing something in your computer and catching you.
However, with cloud storage come some risks as well. While your girlfriend can also log into your online accounts and see for herself what you’re keeping there, many services like Photo Stream and OneDrive can actually sync your media to your devices without you realizing it. This means that your spouse can very well stumble upon some questionable pictures of yours on your phone and catch you.
Track their Movements
We have seen a lot of mobile companies bundle their own phone trackers in their devices for added security. These are supposed to help you get your stolen or lost devices by seeing where they are in real time, using GPS.
The same applications can be used to catch a cheating spouse. If you have, by any chance, access to your partner’s login credentials, it is time to go full check on him or her. If you have even the slightest doubt that the 8 o’ clock meeting at the ‘office’ is taking place elsewhere, fire up the tracker in their cell and tell for sure.
Reviews can take you Down
The way this world is becoming so connected, thanks to the internet, means that we just have to have a say in everything. Sharing our lives online has become second nature to us, and this may very well expose a cheating spouse of yours. If they are ever careless about what they post online, you can catch them. Whether it is a Facebook check-in at an exquisite restaurant, or an online review of some hotel, if you find out something that you don’t know about, then you confront your spouse.
Check Out who that Necklace was for
If you have a joint bank account with your spouse, it may be your ticket to the truth. If he every spent a lot of money on a piece of best jewelry you never got, you may be headed towards a not-so-friendly confrontation with him. Modern software like Mint help take money management to your phone as well. These can also help you find out the truth about your cheating spouse, because you may just have his phone in your hand while a monthly expense notification comes up.
Camera Surveillance Made Easy
Does your room have a computer with a webcam attached? If so, then you can easily set up your own surveillance system right there. You may be able to catch the person who your spouse is bringing home when you’re not there, while also view recorded audio and video footage of who they talk to when those mysterious phone calls come in.
