This post is a guide on how to catch a cheater. I have worked for a private investigation company for nearly four years and have studied various materials (some scientific, some opinion). Additionally, I have learned is that body language can often show when someone is cheating. We all have a complex network of “mirror-neurons” in our brain that tell others around us what kind of mood we are in. Our brains are wired to detect behavioral traits in others and with that we get what is called our “gut instinct‘. When your gut instinct tells you something is wrong or off it may be accurate.
There are dating apps and websites, instant secret phone numbers, encrypted Facebook messenger conversations, and 24/7 gym memberships. These offer plenty of avenues for cheaters to manipulate their victims and fuel their own fantasies.
Here Are 6 Ways to Catch a Cheater in 2019:
- Search for obvious evidence of online dating profile activity
You can usually find someone’s online dating profile activity. Match.com was made by the same people who invented Tinder. You can see if someone has an account just by requesting a password reset using their email address. This trick also works for POF.com.
- Search popular dating apps like Tinder and Bumble
Before 2019 you could use “location spoofers” and catch cheaters by finding their online dating profiles. Unfortunately, over the counter spoofing technology no longer works on the most popular dating apps Tinder and Bumble. Luckily, there is a professional service that can still search the Bumble dating app called “Buzz Humble.” There is also a service for searching the Tinder dating app called “Albion“.
- Install an anti-theft GPS tracker in a shared vehicle
In many municipalities you can track your own vehicles without telling the people who borrow them. Be smart, be safe, and get an affordable GPS tracker from a reputable vendor. This is not a very expensive option.
- Copy their browser’s data directory
If you share a computer, you may be able to copy their internet browser’s entire data profile and run it on another computer. This means that you can take a snapshot of their entire web browser and review their history in a safe environment. This can be done on another machine without them deleting anything. This is a relatively advanced task that will not be outlined here, but it can be figured out with a few google searches and some practice.
- Put something strange in their gym bag
The most common excuse people use to get out of the house and cheat is to go to the gym. You can find out if someone is really going to the gym by putting something obvious and silly into their gym bag. If they do not mention it this could means that they have not seen it and might not have been working out after all.
- Use a free reverse image search
Websites like socialcatfish offer paid reverse image searches that, in my opinion, do not work well at all. You can get a much better reverse image for free at Tineye. Simply upload any public photos of the person who you think might be cheating and tineye will return dating profiles on websites like POF.com and match.com. This method does not work for hand-held apps as they use custom programming interfaces.
Hopefully these tips will come in handy if you have a cheater on your hands.
