Here are Six different techniques to use WhatsApp as a “private investigator” and catch a cheater.
You suspect that your husband or wife is having an affair? Do you think your partner is cheating on you? If you find yourself in this situation, WhatsApp can give you a hand to find out the truth. On the Internet, one technique to know if your wife or husband has cheated is spreading fast, but it is not 100% effective. There are margins of error. But there are also two other ways to investigate a possible betrayal. They are not all “legal”, but it is good to know just in case, and above all, to know how to defend yourself in case of suspicion.
Many people don’t always want to catch a cheating boyfriend or girlfriend. Often, on the contrary, they want to hide the existence of a lover. But where there is a cheater, there is also a betrayed partner and text messages. Let’s make things clear in this world of jealousy, love, and infidelity in the era of WhatsApp.
How to find out if your partner is cheating
As said above, there is a popular method to find out, with WhatsApp, if he (or she) is unfaithful to you. On the web, people don’t talk about anything else. Wives, husbands, boyfriends, and girlfriends are alerted. And it does not end there. With WhatsApp, you can do more. Besides the already popular method, which takes advantage of a little-known function of the application, there are two other ways that may confirm suspicions of adultery. We see in detail how to do, and how to defend yourself.
Find out if he (she) cheats on me: Method 1
The first way to discover an affair is based on a very simple rule: Look on the WhatsApp contact list and find out with whom your partner is mostly exchanging messages, images, and video. On WhatsApp you can see the ranking of contacts with whom we chat more. Just open up the rankings in the data usage, and see who is in the top positions. What is he or she among the people with whom you feel the most? Here is the fatal question. If it is not a friend or a friend whom you know, every suspect is more than legitimate. Nobody exchanges many messages with a person who does not care.
Here is how: Ask him or her to show you the list of WhatsApp close friends on the phone (remember to do it in secret is illegal). Take her/his phone*, open WhatsApp, and go to Settings-> Account > Storage Usage. You will see the ranking of friends with whom you chat most. Just take a quick look, and if you notice a suspicious contact, immediately ask for explanations from your partner about why they have contact so often with that person, so that her/him is so well-placed in the ranking. If the suspected contact is even placed before you, chances are that there is something fishy going on.
* On Android the feature is not yet available. If you are using an Android smart phone, go directly to methods 2 and 3.
Techniques of espionage to catch a cheater: Method 2
The first method technique to discover a betrayal on WhatsApp has a limit: The partners could invent an excuse to justify all those chats with the person suspected. He could deny all, and you would remain with nothing more than a suspicion without confirmation.
There is another way, though, that can bring out the truth. These are applications that allow you to spy on WhatsApp messages from another phone. Clicking on the previous link, you will learn about the most popular app for spying. Just download one of them, and you can read the partner’s messages and see all the photos and videos that she/he has sent. If they are unfaithful, there is no way out.
The problem is that using this type of app without the consent of the partner is illegal, and if you are caught, you risk a sentence. The best thing, therefore, is to ask the partner as an “act of trust”. Ask him/her for the phone. If there is nothing to hide, why should they say no? This way nothing will be illegal, but you will have the certainty of knowing the truth about what is happening.
N.B.All this has a risk. If at the end you find out that there is no betrayal, your partner may be angry at you for the pressure you put on him/her. We must calmly evaluate before acting.
Discover a betrayal with the “tricky message”: Method 3
Let’s say it right away: This method is as powerful as it is illegal. We mention it in this article only for illustrative purposes as well as to defend yourself against any attacks of jealousy from your love one.
We could call it “the tricky message“. It is a fake message that you send to your partner pretending to be her/him lover, and then see how she/he responds and figure out if there’re any signs of infidelity.
To put it into practice, you first need to run the method 1 and identify the suspect contact. If there is one, you can apply the “trap”.
To run it, you need three things:
-A telephone with an unknown phone number to call your partner
-The name of the suspected contact
-The phone of your partner (just for a few seconds)
After getting all requirements, you have to just create a new contact in the address book of your partner’s phone. This contact will have the same name of the suspected’s name (that you got in the ranking of close friends) and the phone number you have picked to put the trap into practice.
Perhaps you’ve already figured out how to proceed. What you have to do is just send a WhatsApp message from the phone with the new number and wait for an answer. Your partner will believe they have received a message by the “lover” and, depending on how he/she responds, you can find out if there is a betrayal or not. Obviously, the advice is to send a “spicy” message, but not too much, to prevent your partner from having suspicions about the veracity of the message.
At this point, there are two possibilities: If you find out your love one is cheating on you, well, you know very well how to behave (men can make mistakes and they might be forgiven). Or, if your suspicions turn out to be baseless, you will need to find a way to apologize to your partner for a lack of confidence.
