    "Spyzie is just very useful because I tried using it to my son, and it notifies me the activities he's been doing on the internet. And soo It helps me to know if my son is cheating. I mean we have an agreement that he is not allowed to visit sites that are not for kids, so it's really reliable. Thank you Spyzie!!!"

    "This is not really recommended when it comes to tracking the location of your partner, because you have to have permission first from that person if he would let you see his location. If he did not allow you, then you won't be able to see his whereabouts! tried using it that's why I know.. "

    "This app is great for keeping track of your loved one and making sure there is no funny business. I can stalk them from anywhere and interfere when it gets suspicious. This lets me take stalking my significant other to the next level."

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that infidelity is likely for both men and women? Although cheating used to be highly associated with men in the act, women are as suspected. There are different factors on why people are unfaithful to their spouses. Factors can be their age, genes, sexual preference, or economic status. Infidelity has two facets known as emotional and physical affairs. The former is a complex to define but there are ways to figure it out. A book titled “Chatting or Cheating” by Sheri Meyers highlights these tactics. One would be when your spouse gets defensive or evasive. Especially when inquiring about their friendship with another person. Could your partner or anyone be giving out this red flag?

It’s not simple to find out whether your partner is cheating or not. Although it is always best to know the truth. Rather than to continue being clueless about the status of your own relationship. A private investigator tells The Independent signs that your partner is cheating. Obvious signs include business trips, less sexual activity, overtime hours, or defensiveness. But it is interesting to note that not all these signs immediately lead to your partner to cheat on you. You still have to trust your intuition first. Nowadays, although a private investigator can help, you can start with baby steps. There are apps made for couples to keep in touch and track. These apps can help you catch some suspicious activity if you feel that your spouse is cheating on you.

    "Find My Friends is a good app if you're trying to catch a cheater. You can know exactly where your husband and wife is and maybe you'll find him balls deep over at the neighbors, who knows! It is worth the download if you don't trust your SO and want to see if they're up to no goo."

    "This app is a way to be in touch with your significant other and I'm not sure how it would be used as a to catch a cheater. So this is not a good way to spy on your SO, I'm sure you would need a detective and not an app that lets you stay closer together by sending love notes."

    "Restore Contacts is a very useful app that allows the user to restore any phone contact that has been manually deleted. You're able to search for deleted contacts and either restore them individually or all at once. It's not necessary to have previously backed up your phone in order to use the app. Although you can certainly use the app to help you catch a cheating partner, I've found that the most useful application is if you accidentally delete a friend's number or need to get in touch with someone who you may not have spoken to in a long time. At any rate, it's a convenient app with a variety of uses."

    "These tools give you access to another person's phone calls, SMS, Snapchat messages, tweets, anything you can think of. It seems that they touch on a gray area of legality. But when I suspect my partner of cheating I used Hoverwatch to confirm what I already pretty much knew. "

    "Dumpster is an app that does automatic backups of files on android devices. It is available from the Google Play Store. This seems like strange way to catch a cheater but if you installed this app on your partners phone and they were not aware then it could work. I think there are much better ways so I would say this doesn't fit the topic very well."

    "You never want to have to use this app, but in the case where you lose your phone or fear it's been stolen, then this becomes an incredibly important one. Lets face it your phone or electronic device has so much information about yourself on it, not to mention all of your saved passwords and apps where people can just buy stuff under your identity. It's important that you have an app installed to protect your sensitive information. Also, you might even be able to get your phone back one day with this!"

This seems like a strange way to catch a cheater, but maybe I don't understand how younger people are cheating on instagram. I guess if you have a friend that is cheating on instagram then this is a very good way to download the stories and prove it. "
