5 Snooping-Free Ways To Tell If Your Partner Is Cheating

Apr 05, 2018 by apost team

Sometimes, your partner’s phone use can make you suspect they might be cheating on you. You may think that you have to get their passcode and snoop around on their phone to see exactly what’s going on, but you don’t have to invade their privacy to get the information you need. All you need to do is to watch out for these five red flags.

1. They Won’t Let You Unlock Their Phone

If you ask to use your partner’s phone for some reason, like if the battery is dead or you can’t get a signal, watch out for how your partner reacts to the request for their passcode. If they enter the passcode so you can’t see it and then hand you the phone, there might be a problem.



2. Watch Their Notifications

This one might sound too easy, but something you can keep an eye out for are notifications from dating apps like OKCupid or Tinder. If your partner is cheating and hasn’t turned off these notifications, it’s possible that they want you to catch them so they won’t have to do the work of breaking up with you themselves.


3. Too Many Private Calls

Does your partner duck out of the room every time his or her phone rings? You might have a problem. Everyone needs privacy to make a phone call once in a while, but typically, we can talk about most things in front of our partners. Taking too many private calls may be a bad sign.


4. Always Holding Their Phone

Everyone is obsessed with their phones these days, so using them a lot isn’t a cause for concern in itself. If your partner never puts their phone down and always carries it with them whenever they leave the room, this is a sign to watch out for. Your partner may be fearing that you catch a text message from their outside love interest.


5. Check Their Background Photo

This sign is almost obvious enough to be silly. Of course, if your partner’s phone background is a picture of him or her with someone they could have romantic feelings for, be suspicious. It’s fine to have a photo with a bestie, family member, or a celebrity they were lucky enough to meet. If your partner really does have a picture of his or her crush as a background on their phone, your relationship may be on the rocks even if they aren’t cheating (yet).

Trust your intuition when your partner is being too secretive with their phone. Hiding to take calls, “forgetting” to turn off dating app notifications, and never putting their phone down for a second might give you the idea that he or she is cheating on you.


Pass on this important knowledge to your friends and loved ones so that they can watch out for these signs too.
