“Cloud-based software, including Apple’s iCloud, is providing a new way for people to learn whether their partners are cheating on them, according to a leading divorce lawyer,” Sophie Curtis reports for The Telegraph. “Sam Hall, family law partner at JMW Solicitors, said he had received several enquiries in recent months after people found incriminating messages or photos on shared cloud-based software which sync with their mobile phones, tablets or computer.”
“In one case Hall is currently advising on, a married man in his early 40s was out for the night with male friends, who encouraged him to download Tinder and ‘look up’ nearby single women looking for dates. He also used Snapchat to exchange explicit photos with women, which continued in the weeks following the night out,” Curtis reports. “Unfortunately for the man, the explosive photos and messages synced to the iCloud account he shared with his wife – and which could also have been viewed by his iPad-literate son, aged just seven.”
“His wife monitored the account for a fortnight to gather evidence before confronting her husband, who she is now divorcing on grounds of unreasonable behaviour, also pointing out the emotional damage the couple’s son could have suffered had he seen the explicit photos and messages,” Curtis reports. “In another case, a teenager using a family iPad discovered incriminating messages and photos exchanged between her mother and a man with whom she was having an affair. The woman is being divorced by her husband on the basis of adultery.”
