Cheating is one of the most hurtful things that your partner can do for you. Most of the time all the signs are there, although you have no clear proof that your significant one is cheating on you. If you want to find out the truth, there are multiple ways to do it.
Analyse the social media profiles
Social media is used by almost everyone, and you can find useful information there. There are a couple of tools that can be very helpful in this situation. For example, using the Facebook Graph Search you can look for phrases such as “friends of [your partner’s name]”. You can find even more than that and you can search for “Photos [partner’s name] has liked” or “photos [partner’s name] has commented on.”
Use a cell phone spy app
One of the best ways to get a cheater caught is by going through his or her phone. Luckily for you, technology has advanced and it is possible to bust your spouse. If you have serious doubts about your partner, you might want to use a spyware app. These apps allow you to access everything they have on their device, from messages to call logs and emails. However, you shouldn’t use this method unless you are almost certain that your spouse is cheating, otherwise your risk betraying their trust for no reason.
Use the phone functions
If your partner has an iPhone, you can always take advantage of the Find My Phone application. This app allows you to track your phone in case it is lost or stolen. Nonetheless, you can use it to track a cheater. You need to use his Apple ID and password to log in. If you don’t have access to those you can convince him to download Find My Friends on his device.
If they sync his data with the cloud, you can get a lot of useful information there. All the files deleted from the phone will continue to show up in the cloud. You can find there, pictures that your partner has taken or pictures that were received from other persons.
Check the recycle bin
If you two live together it should be easy for you to use his computer. Look in the trash and see if there is anything interesting among the deleted files. You can do the same thing on his phone. IPhones have a folder for recently deleted pictures.
You can take things even further if you are convinced that he is cheating on you, and you might want to take a look in the actual trash. Look for suspicious receipts, such as those for women’s clothing.
