All the Ways You Can Cheat in 2020 Without Getting Caught
There is 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 virtuous path. Worried? Well, we have you covered with the 10 ways a partner with a wandering eye can cheat in 2020 and possibly, get away with it.
Using Google DocsAs anyone with a Gmail account knows, Google Docs is a collaborative word processing system that is readily available to those with access to a web browser. So, essentially, everyone. You can create and edit documents seamlessly. Even better, multiple users can access a single document at the same time, witnessing people’s changes as they make them, and every change is saved automatically. It is like a live messaging platform through a more corporate, professional setting. That’s probably why no one would think to check their SO’s Google Drive for evidence of private conversations with a side piece. Unfortunately, though, some people are not just using Google Docs to cheat on tests, they are also using it to cheat in their relationships!
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.

Pop in a username with random numbers and dots, a bio that jumbles up English like “followers right now for you click now 2900 more free” and throw in an Insta logo profile pic and voila, DMing someone on the low has never been more inconspicuous.
