With the advancement of the internet and the fact that it is being used for everything these days it is no wonder that there is an increase in infidelity, that is, online infidelity. More and more families are being broken up and destroyed because of cheating spouses, and the ability for them to hide it better. Gone are the days of cheating spouses being caught in the act in the marital bed and at work. Now comes the stage of online cheating and so too comes the days of catching them online with things like online private investigators. Possible cheating signs? They quickly close out the window they are on when you approach the computer. Or they use it late at night, when they know you will be busy or getting ready for bed or already sleeping. Whenever you ask what they are doing online you get a "nothing" or other elusive response from them. Unexplained charges from "brown package" companies. These are companies that use cover names for credit card billing so that no one will know what the actual product is. This is often done by dating sites, pornographic sites and other such sites. Before we continue with the ways to catch a cheating spouse, I must forewarn you. Finding actual proof that they are cheating can be heart breaking. Ensure that you are fully prepared for the possible news and the finding of evidence that will settle it once and for all. Remember, the whole reason you began this journey was for physical proof to justify your suspicions. How do you catch a cheating spouse? One way you can catch a cheating spouse that is doing it online is by using a key-logger program. This will allow you to see what they have written in instant messages emails and other computer applications. Dependant on the program it can even send you an email at another computer or email address of the recent activity on the computer. Another thing to check when they are not around are the actual computer files. Many people will download pictures of the person they are cheating with and other such incriminating files. Check the files in the recycle bin. If you are very computer literate you could also do a system restore to a date you are suspicious about and see if there are any files that were present before your cheating partner deleted them. If you find the information you are looking for, make sure you make a hard copy of it. Whether you email it to yourself (make sure you cover your tracks) or download it to a disc, you will need the hard proof. When you are done, ensure you restore it back to its original state or you will give your suspicions away. If none of these ways appeal to you or you just don't have the nerve or time to catch them in the act you can also contact online private investigators. There are a great number of them that for a minimal fee will track your possibly adulterous spouse and let you know what is really going on.
