This article is intended to showcase all of the apps that cheaters will use to keep their affairs a secret. Additionally, you will learn about some of the features of these apps and even some techniques you can use to find out if your partner is being faithful.
Hello! It’s Frankie here again. Unfortunately, it is a common thing for people in relationships to cheat these days.
It is sad but true.
Recent statistics are even less encouraging, proposing that in a third of marriages one or both partners admit to cheating.
If you want to know how so many people can get by with their cheating, you have come to the right place.
Here you can discover the kind of Android, iPhone and Windows phone apps they download to avoid suspicions and learn their secrets firsthand.
That’s right, all of their secrets.
Also, you can expect a comprehensive list of the most used infidelity apps so you can keep a secret (though it is more honest to break up) or to catch your wife/husband or significant other red handed.
Don’t Miss: Hiding Apps on Your Android or iPhone Device
Technology, specifically smartphones, have made it harder and easier to cheat all at the same time.
While this might seem contradictory, it still remains the truth.
For starters, phones tend to leave a trail of communication between cheater and lover. At the same time, certain apps make it easier than ever to conceal these communications from everyone they know.
Ready to find out a little more, let’s dive right in.
Before continuing I have something interesting to show you. I have made two videos with the 10 more obvious signals to understand if your partner is cheating on you.
Various Apps For Different Kinds of Cheaters
First, you have to get inside the mind of the cheater.
I’m sure this is not especially difficult to do.
One of their primary concerns is keeping their illicit conversations private and away from the eyes of their committed partner, correct?
Many messages to cover up including regular messages regarding times and places to meet, suggestive material and even sexting messages.
But that is not the worst of it.
No, the worst of it is the images and videos, which at times can be downright out incriminating. Imagine such sensitive material ending up in a divorce lawyer’s hand. Unfortunately or fortunately, apps address all kinds of secret communications that need to transpire.
First you have to consider what kind of cheater you are, or believe your partner to be.
Yes, you read that correctly.
A cheater is not just a cheater. There are serial cheaters, professional cheaters and even the occasional infidelity.
As with any field of expertise, some tools are meant for professionals while others offer simplicity to newbies.
First, let’s see the arsenal in use by serial and occasional cheaters.
Messaging Apps For Serial Cheaters
Let’s summon up the supposed traits of a serial cheater.
He/She is a solitary hunter. Much like a jaguar, they constantly hunt for prey but never take action with the herd. They do not trust people.
They are going to operate based on a calculated plan, leaving nothing to chance.
They will operate under the guise of darkness. They choose weapons carefully and never operate unless there is zero risk of getting caught.
Want to know the best/worst part?
Serial cheaters have two or more affairs at once, working to keep their respective relationships apart to avoid getting caught by either.
Let’s take a look at the apps popular for serial cheaters.
These apps can hide messages or delete them as soon as they are sent from a phone. Below are the must have apps of the aspiring or current serial cheater:
This 3rd party messaging application is available on all major devices. On the outside, it looks like a harmless messaging app, yet in the hands of an informed user, it is a sneaky application for affairs to occur.
Here are some of its features:
Secret Chats – Viber allows you to create secret conversations. The messages in this conversation delete automatically after a certain length of time, say 1-5 minutes. This gives you the freedom to send even the most incriminating of messages, images and video, because within a few minutes it no longer exists anywhere.
Hidden Chats – Viber also allows hidden chats to happen as well. For example, if your spouse picks up your phone and cycles through your chats, the affair will not be visible. Once you key in a pin, the chat appears within the main list, and you can pick up the conversation from where you left off.
This is a favorite app for cheaters because it is known to be a common application for international calling. They can easily justify the download for work reasons, but really be exploiting the features of hidden chats and disappearing messages.
Another cheating application perfect for erasing communications. This also looks like an innocent third party messaging application but has features that make it ideal for affairs to happen.
Disappearing Messages – This deletes all messages and media sent or received from a specific designated user after an allotted amount of time.
You can activate it just for conversations with the lover and set a time interval as often as a minute, making it perfect for those with snoopy significant others.
This service is like Viber in that it has the disappearing messages but lacks the hidden chat features. It is renowned for having incredible security, making it a believable excuse that this is an interoffice download for work communications.
This is also a popular choice. Most people, even those that are not cheating, use this application. It will not raise suspicions then, when you install it on your own phone.
The most recent versions of the app have features almost designed for cheating:
Autodestruct – You can set a countdown timer for the conversations you have with specific users.
Hidden Chats – Telegram gives you the option to have a secret conversation with any user. This will not be accessible to anyone, as it requires a pin to access.
Like WhatsApp, it is very popular to have this application which should shade suspicions. Unlike WhatsApp, it has the option to hide chats and autodestruct messages, making it ideal for infidelity.
Other Apps Used By Serial Cheaters
There are other applications for keeping communications a secret or for helping those cheating to find new lovers. Tinder, Fake Calculator and Vault-Hide are some examples. If you find them on your partner’s phone, it is cause for concern.
How To Tell If Your Partner Is A Serial Cheater
If you are concerned there might be a third party to your relationship, your significant other’s phone is a good place to establish this truth.
If your spouse using one or both of these applications, specifically Viber and Signal, you should be a little curious as to what they are up to.
If their reasoning for installing the applications do not seem right, you should attempt to dig in a little farther.
One of the easiest methods to know with certainty is spyware like mSpy installed on their phone and you will have all of the answers you could possibly want and more.
Apps For The Occasional Cheater
Opportunity makes a thief, and that’s one of the truest statements that I know.
For some people, you might be faithful to a fault until an irresistible opportunity presents itself to you. Since your spouse does not likely suspect you of cheating, you need a quick and simple way to keep the suspicions at bay.
Below you can find a couple of the apps that occasional cheaters use to communicate with lovers:
This is a very simple messaging app that is incredibly popular by nearly all smartphone users. The benefit of this application is its use of end-to-end encryption.
This means that the data you divulge is fully secure and no one can access it unless they use your phone. So if you are cheating and your spouse never looks at your phone, it persists to be a good affair app to use. Bear in mind the possibility of he/she getting an intuition to check it out from time to time, though.
One of the best things that the cheater can do is to lockup the account with a password. This keeps anyone from accessing it from the phone, but it does not save you if spyware has been installed on your device.
Due to its popularity, WhatsApp is heavily used by cheaters even though it can get hacked into easily by a snooping spouse. It can be locked with a password, but is left unprotected from spyware apps.

2. Facebook Messenger
Often betrayal begins on Facebook. An old classmate, gym partners and ex girlfriends/boyfriends.
Seems like everyone flirts on Facebook.
You start by liking a post innocently and end up chatting in the Messenger.
This is an excellent platform for cheaters who want to have private conversations. This for two reasons: the first is that your Messenger account is secured by password (and two-factor verification). The second is that you can use the Facebook Secret Chats feature to send secret messages to your mistress that are automatically destroyed after a given number of seconds (after being read of course).
It is easier than ever to send messages to anyone right from your phone.
So what’s the kicker?
It is hackable as well, and if your partner knows some tricks, you can imagine what happens.
It gives you more access to cheating situations than WhatsApp can, but offers the same hackable account set up.
This app is exclusively used by Apple users. It also offers end-to-end encryption which guarantees security for the conversation but can also get spied on with the right software.
Why would cheaters love it?
With iMessage, conversations can happen from iPads, Mac computers and iPhones alike. Of course the drawback is that the more places you converse with your lover, the more chances you have of getting caught.
Easily hacked, and is not as secure as WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger. Cheaters use it for simplicity across devices.
4. Instagram Direct Message
Instagram is a popular photo and media platform that can easily double as a great private communication channel. The app offers excellent cover as a social media platform, especially for ladies having an affair.
This is where a lot of cheaters go fishing for new lovers.
It is used by almost every cheater on the planet to find lovers but the difference between professionals and newbies is that they first move their conversations to apps like Signal or Viber instead.
This is a paradise for potential cheaters. There are high chances of finding someone to cheat with and easily contacting them with the integrated messaging app. However, like the other apps, it is easy to hack into for incriminating information.
How to Catch Your Partner Cheating
You might be surprised at home many ways there are to catch a spouse cheating, though most of them involve spying on their phone to get the answers you want.
Smartphones have taken considerable strides to make life easier, but they have also ruined it completely in other areas.
Now, everything leaves a trail. Calls, text messages, online transactions and more can all get traced back to the sender.
For those suspected of cheating, here are the best ways of tracing these activities.
1. Google Location History
Few people know that if you have a Gmail account, whenever you location is on with your phone, your phone is keeping a detailed record of all the places you go.
The restaurants, shoddy motels, and other locations all get added and tracked by the phone.
You can actually easily access this data from other devices where this same user stays signed in (like the home computer). You can click on this link on that device or you can google “view your location history in Google Maps.”
It should go without saying that you need to investigate more if you intend to catch your husband or wife red-handed, but this is a good place to start.
2. Hack a Cheater’s Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp
As I have already explained, every messaging app that runs on Android or iOS devices is hackable.
Messenger and WhatsApp in particular are readily hackable.
You can find proof of an affair even if these are not the most favored apps of your cheating partner by hacking one of these options.
Actually, being one of the most popular messaging apps on the planet, there must be compromising messages between either trusted friends or the actual lover.
This is the perfect spying app to catch cheating spouses. Not surprisingly, many wives use this app to catch the underhanded actions of their untrustworthy husbands.
There is nothing that you cannot use this application and software to spy on, whether it is an iPhone, an Android, a Mac, PC, or whatever device the cheater uses.
The acquisition of mSpy includes all of these incredible features:
- Location Tracking
- Reviewing Call Logs
- Access to All Text Messages
- Access to All Messaging Apps (WhatsApp, Messenger, iMessage etc.)
- Email Access
- Viewing All Photos and Videos Stored on Phone
- All Installed Apps (Including Hidden Apps for Hookups and Dating)
- Internet History and Activity (Including Hidden Dating Sites)
- And more and more…
From a safe and undetectable position, you can see literally everything that your partner is doing on their phone.
This is both amazing and scary – all at the same time.
You can install this application on a phone, and then link the information to yours. You can learn more about installation in this guide I have written: Step-by-Step Guide to mSpy. Inside you will also find a discount voucher (it’s a gift reserved for readers of my blog).
Once you have done this, you are guaranteed to get the answers you seek and all of the information about what your partner is up to.
In short, when you are planning to bring another person into your relationship, you should prepare for this with the best applications designed to keep communication private.
The third-party messaging apps mentioned above are a good place to begin. They can help you to eliminate your incriminating trail of messaging breadcrumbs.
If you are on the other side of things, trying to catch a cheater in their tracks, you can always find the information you seek somewhere on their phone. You can find the trail of evidence and even look at their location history for more concrete evidence.
Applications like mSpy can help to simplify and streamline this search to determine if your spouse is cheating on you (View Demo).
Now we have finally reached the end of this lengthy guide. I hope that you have found one or more of the answers that you have been seeking.
I think it is important to give you a short recap, though, in case you missed anything.
Apple and Google’s stores are both brimming with messaging apps. There are options to suit every taste.
There are some apps that those who cheat prefer to use over others. In this guide, I have shown you all of them and split them up based on the type of cheater that might benefit the most from using it.
In the first part of the guide I analyzed apps used by Serial Cheaters such as Viber, Signal, and Telegram. They are the safest messaging apps to speak with your lover. Among their various features, they allow you to create messages that self-destruct and chats that are protected by a password.
The second part of the guide listed apps used by Occasional Cheaters. These don’t require as much espionage, so they usually just use WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, iMessage, and Instagram Direct. These are the most commonly used messaging apps.
I also took a moment to tell you the 3 best techniques to catch cheating red-handed.
