I found this article that was sent to me yesterday to be very interesting because, just yesterday, I received a pop-up on my cell phone titled, “Track Your Cheating Boyfriend With His Phone Number Via GPS.” I admit this pop-up, gave me the creeps because it seemed like a cryptic message to me. Since it has never occurred to me to secretly install a spy application on anyone’s phone, I was curious and did some research. I learned that most cell phone manufacturers are pushing cellular surveillance applications you can install in cell phones. Some reasons given are innocent, like tracking your children. Other reasons given are to track your significant other if you suspect they are cheating. In addition, if someone can breach your provider’s online account with your password, most providers have a service where you can also track people online via their phone number by GPS.
Here are some excerpts from this story:
When Apple released its new IOS5 operating system to go with its iPhone 4S, it touted a new app called “Find My Friends” as a great way to track and meet up with friends. If they agree, you can see their locations on a map on your screen.
But the app’s enterprising customers are apparently already finding other uses. If the online posts appearing on a chat forum at MacRumors.com are for real, “Find My Friends” may have already claimed its first marriage.
Saturday night on MacRumors, a man saying he lived in New York City posted this:
“Divorcing wife. Thanks iPhone 4s and Find My Friends.”
“I got my wife a new 4s and loaded up find my friends without her knowing. She told me she was at her friends house in the east village. I’ve had suspicions about her meeting this guy who lives in uptown. Lo and behold, Find my Friends has her right there.”
“I just texted her asking where she was and the dumb b—- said she was on 10th Street!! Thank you Apple, thank you App Store, thank you all. These beautiful treasure trove of screen shots [sic] going to play well when I meet her … at the lawyer’s office in a few weeks.” “thankfully, she’s the rich one.”
Apple says “The Find My Friends app is a great way to share your location with people who are important to you” — whether you’re trying to meet friends at a crowded concert or make sure your kids get safely home from school. There have certainly been other apps before, such as Google Latitude, that let you track people through GPS signals, but Apple will make it trendy.
End of excerpts.
If you are tempted to track your partner due to suspicion that they are cheating, you can install one of these applications or hire a private detective for much less than it used to cost. Our U-Spy Store also sells cellular phone surveillance tracking software and GPS tracking devices. Either way, it appears it is becoming increasingly more difficult for spouses or significant others to cheat without getting caught. I don’t wish this scenario on anyone and hopefully you will never have to worry about your spouse/partner cheating on you.
If you suspect your partner is cheating on you, MSI Detective Services does provide ‘Cheating and Infidelity Services.
