One of the biggest anxieties that people in relationships have is that their significant other will cheat on them. People cheat for a variety of reasons instead of confronting a problem in a relationship head-on – such as their partner’s lack of sexual prowess.
Now, one man who used an app to catch his cheating wife is facing up to 15 years behind bars for his actions.
These days, it’s easier than ever to keep tabs on your partner online. With only a few clicks, you can see whose photographs and statuses they are liking on social media, and, if they’re careless enough to leave their phone lying around, their text messages.
But there’s one app which allows people to keep an even closer eye on their partners – Find My iPhone. It was designed to help iPhone users locate their phone in the event of it being lost or stolen, but some people have given it a more invasive purpose – stalking their partner.
Obviously, it doesn’t bode well if you’re insecure enough in your relationship to use Find My iPhone to keep tabs on your partner, but cheating is a difficult thing to deal with, and, aside from catching your partner in the act, there are limited ways of confirming that it’s happening.
But, until now, few people realized that resorting to such desperate measures could land them in jail.
Sean Donis from New Jersey had suspected that his wife, Nancy, had been cheating on him for some time and, desperate to find out the truth, he used his wife’s iPad to check her location when she said that she was going out to dinner with friends.
