It seems like everyone is using the Internet today, and this is why people look to online activity when they suspect their spouse is cheating on them. There are several ways to go about finding the information you are looking for. Some of these techniques are only legal under certain circumstances, while other techniques may be legal all of the time. But if you go about it in the wrong manner, you can easily alert your partner of your suspicions. The following are three areas to check on your spouse’s online activity.
Even those who are not Internet savvy understand that email is a good place to catch a cheating partner. Of course, everyone knows this, so if your partner is cheating and contacting someone else by email, they are likely to be using another email than the one you know about. If they are using the email you know, they are likely to have a password that you don’t know. This, of course, is suspicious, and that is why another email is used. But if the other email is used on the same computer it may be possible to find out what the email account is. Another scenario is that the email used is one at a computer used on the job. It may not be possible to access this email information.
Examining a Computer’s Browser History
Which websites your partner has visited can provide a lot of important information, especially those pages within a particular website. The problem is finding a way to do this. The simplest way is to look at your partner’s browser history. Every browser keeps track of a user’s history; you only need to know how to view it. Each browser is different, but all of them will have user history available as a menu selection. Some browsers simply refer to it as history. However, it is easy to delete a browser’s history with a simple click of the mouse, so there may be nothing there. Keep in mind, though, that a spouse who feels the need to persistently clear their browser history, may be up to no good.
Gathering Information on Your Partner’s Smartphone
It is common for a cheating spouse to simply avoid using a computer altogether, and use his or her smartphone for communication with their lover. A smartphone can be used for social media sites on the Internet as well as email messaging. Often people think that what they do on their smartphone is private, and to a certain extent it is. There are laws regarding what a wife or husband can legally do with their spouse’s smartphone, but depending upon the specific circumstances, it may be legal to look at the browsing history and email correspondence as well as other information. It may even be possible to install a tracking app, so you will have a record of all of your spouse’s activities. However, to do something like this, you need to consult with a private investigator for cheating spouses.
Whatever your situation is, if you think you can discover evidence of a cheating spouse through their online activity, you should consult with an investigation firm such as ours. This type of investigative work needs to be done both legally and discreetly. You want to avoid criminal activity, but you also don’t want your spouse to know that they are being investigated. Our professional investigators have the ability to accomplish this.
