So you see signs that your wife is cheating on you. Now you want to prove it, but how?
Sure, you can download one of dozens of GPS trackers, catch a cheater apps, or similar programs on your wife’s phone. But do they work? And if you end up in divorce court, is that recorded information ultimately admissible? Read on for what you need to know about cell phone tracker information.
Mobile tracker applications are apps that you can install on a phone for tracking and spying purposes. They can record keystrokes, conversations, or even the actual GPS location of the phone. There are many apps available, some of which you can even install without the physical phone in your hands – but do they work?
Ostensibly, tracking apps can help you in your daily life as well as your surveillance needs. Many people use them to recover a lost cell phone, parents can keep tabs on a teenager, and some apps even help you recover a stolen device. But what if you suspect that your wife is cheating on you? A mobile tracker application may be what you need.
mSpy is one of the better cell phone tracker programs, mainly because you don’t need access to the actual phone in order for it to work. You can send your spouse an email with an image in it – once he or she clicks on it, the app is installed without their knowledge. This app can monitor their texts, emails, calls, and location as well. mSpy is the preferred tracker when it comes to Android phones and tablets.
Another option is FlexiSpy, which also can track texts, emails, calls, and locations. It can be used with any kind of electronic tool and can even record video and audio. FlexiSpy also allows the user to remain invisible on the devices so no one will suspect anything. This tracking software is best when used with iPhones and iPads.
But the problem with tracker apps is that they don’t offer a high enough standard of proof to be used in a divorce case. Seeing your wife exchange text messages with another man may be enough for you, but it doesn’t prove infidelity in a court of law.
As NAI Chief Investigator and veteran Great Neck NY private investigator, Darrin Giglio, puts it, “Just because your wife talks about having an affair doesn’t prove that she actually consummated it. Your wife’s attorney can easily brush aside a set of text messages.” To catch a cheater and have the evidence stand up in court, says Darrin, you need surveillance evidence, such as video evidence.
“If you can get video of the couple having a romantic encounter in a car or entering a hotel room,” says Darrin, “That’s far stronger evidence than you’ll get from a tracker app.”
And, yes, your smartphone has a video camera, but don’t try to follow your wife and do your own surveillance.
“It’s just a terrible idea to try to follow someone yourself,” says Darrin. “Hire a professional to do it for you.”
