There’s an age-old saying that warns, “Cheaters never prosper.” But, this is the 21st century and technology has made cheating on a significant other that much easier.
In the age of technological advances, artificial intelligence and well, Black Mirror, savvy cheaters are thriving and giving in to the temptation to sway from the path of honesty. Worried? Well, we’ve got you covered with all the ways a partner with a wandering eye can cheat and, possibly, get away with it.
Making fake Instagram accounts
Using Google Docs
Just ask Twitch streamer Lily "LilyPichu" Ki who found out her boyfriend Albert “Sleightlymusical” Chang allegedly used Google Docs to cheat on her. The alleged person he cheated with (another Twitch streamer) leaked a screenshot of their document during a stream.
Creating a *new* email address just for the cheaters
This time, however, you are creating a brand new email address for you and your boo, which both of you share the account information to (password, etc.) and communicate by saving your correspondence in the drafts. Once read, drafts can be deleted without having to check the "Trash" folder to make sure you actually deleted your message.
Planning fake Instagram Stories
In other words, new-age cheaters are creating their own library of various “safe” images and videos to upload during times they aren’t with their SO and with someone else. Geotagging a fake location near your workplace or friend’s house is just another way to get away with it.
Using cheating-centric apps
Creating a secret Cloud folder
Desyncing the application from your computer allows for only a user with the correct username and password to gain access.
