I am against snooping through the mobile phones of partners when in a relationship. To me, it is either the person loves you and he/she is being faithful or does not love you and therefore he/she is cheating…

When people are cheating, you do not have to go through their phones to find out. You can easily spot it through their actions and behaviour pattern. It is simple as that!

What I hate and hope I will never do is to secretly go through a partner’s phone. What happens if you find nothing? What happens if you find out that the person is not cheating? You would have undermined the trust upon which the whole relationship is built.

Contrary to my thinking, the below article which is based on a poll states that the most common way affairs are exposed is by checking partners’ phone.  I wonder what happened to paying attention to partner’s behaviour.

In the past, lipstick on the collar, the scent of another woman’s perfume or receipts from mysterious dinners for two were the clues suspicious wives looked for to discover if their man was cheating.

But in the age of modern technology, now snooping on a partner’s mobile phone is the most common way to catch them out.

‘Going through mobile phone’ has been cited as the top reason why illicit affairs have been exposed, according to a new poll.

…And the easiest way the phone gives cheats away is…

The iPhone’s auto preview messaging feature – which brings a text up on screen as soon as it comes through – was named as one of the ways technology can easily expose a cheat.

How many people have been caught cheating, courtesy of phone snooping?

Nearly 2,400 UK adults, all of whom had either been caught cheating while in a relationship or who had found a partner was being unfaithful to them in the past, were quizzed by a mobile phone insurance website on the circumstances in which the infidelity was discovered.

Almost half of those questioned – 41 per cent – said checking for evidence on their partner’s mobile phone was the reason why an affair came to light.

The second most common way to catch a cheater was via social network websites like Facebook (23 per cent) and by going through their files on their personal computer or tablet (13 per cent).

A minority of 11 per cent were unable to cover their tracks so they were caught face-to-face while 5 per cent had to be told their partner was up to no good by a friend or family member.

Just two per cent admitted having a guilty conscience led them to making a full confession.

Mobile phone insurance website www.mobileinsurance.co.uk conduced the research after noting a rise in the number of claims for breakages that occurred to handsets during relationship splits or arguments.

Almost a tenth of the respondents taking part said that a mobile phone had become broken as a direct result of an argument within a relationship, such as by being thrown or dropped.

John Lamerton, managing director of MobileInsurance.co.uk, said: ‘You’d be surprised how often relationship arguments and cheating gets cited in mobile phone insurance claims, even though we often don’t ask for that depth of detail.

‘Evidently, those being unfaithful in relationships need to keep better tabs on who is looking at their mobile phone, as it’s by far the most common way in which cheaters are caught. Either that, or they should nip their cheating ways in the bud!

‘To see references being made to the auto preview feature on the iPhone wasn’t surprising. I’m sure that’s got a few people into sticky situations in the past.’
