iCloud: A Cheater's Nightmare


Divorce lawyers ready to cash in!

Photo-stream

 

Apple released iCloud for Mac, PC and iOS5 devices this week and after only a few days, millions of users have already started using the service.  However two features of the new iCloud service could cause big problems for anyone cheating or otherwise doing things they might not ought to be doing.

Photostream:

One of the most ballyhoo'd features of iCloud is Photo Stream.  To quote Apple's website:

With iCloud, when you take a photo on one device, it automatically appears on all your other devices. No syncing. No sending. Your photos are just there. Everywhere you want them.

Every picture snapped on your iPhone or iPad are automatically streamed to every other iPhone, iPad, PC or Mac configured with the same iCloud account.  A photo taken on your iPhone at the bar at 2am will near-instantly appear on your computer at home or on the iPhone of your spouse trying to text-message you asking what you're doing.  And the best part?  You cannot delete individual photos from your iCloud Photo Stream.  

 

You read that right: Once you take a picture, it will automatically be added into your Photo Stream and once that happens you cannot delete it.  Every pictures is stored on the Photo Stream for 30 days, or until you take over 1000 pictures, whichever comes first.

**Update for iOS 6: You can now delete pictures from your photostream, but only on the device you are deleting it from (it stays on the other device's Photostream)

Update 2013 - iOS 7 - Now when you delete a picture from Photostream, it is deleted from all devices.  If you use iPhoto had configure it to download your images, the downloaded images will not be deleted.

Find Friends:

Another new feature of iOS5 is a free app called "Find Friends".  Similar to the Find My iPhone service of iCloud, Find Friends allows you to invite people to follow you wherever you go.  Once you give authorization to allow someone to follow you, they will know where you are 24/7, without any notice.   Scorned lovers across the globe may already be secretly inviting and authorizing themselves (without the knowledge of the phone-owner, if they have access to the phone) to track their cheating husband or wife and every step they take.

 

Smart divorce lawyers out there may already be instructing husbands and wives how to use these great new services.

Boyfriend's iCloud help
I know my boyfriend's Apple ID and password and I logged in to his account through my iPhone after signing out of my accounts. He later texted me saying some of my contacts ended up on his phone, what other things could have ended up on his phone? how can I unsync Contacts and embarrassing photos etc from his device? would changing my Apple ID password and iCloud password take care of the issue?

Help being stalked by soon to be ex husband
I am trying to find out how to pry apart my iphone 5S from my soon to be ex-husband's shared Apple ID. I don't know how to do this in a way that I would ever be able to gain access to my photos & apps. I actually don't know what the password is for the Apple ID we are sharing. I don't want to cause for his photos to be removed from the cloud. I am afraid of the reprecussions of I separate them & he loses photos. However, he is using my phone to track everything I am doing. He can view my imessages from his desktop computer & it is hard to talk to my friends, as he can see everything I am texting. I don't know a lot abou my phone, he used to do all updates & things for me. My phone hasn't been updated in almost a year I have no idea what iOS I have. I just want to separate things but don't know how to do it. Please advise. I am so nervous we have a 15month old baby girl & he is making out life a living hell. Please help. Thank you.

being stalked by husband on icloud

There are two, easy options:
1) go get a new phone.. any phone.. does not have to be an iPhone.. Problem solved..
or
2) go into the iphone's settings, go into the iCloud settings, and tap everything to OFF. then go into Messaging settings and make sure iCloud is signed-out. This wont remove any of his stuff from iCloud, only from the phone - look at ALLL of the settings and make sure that ALLL of the icloud services, including the separte messaging settings are OFF or LOGGED OUT - if you don't know how your phone works (or cant read/dont take the time to read all the settings) it is possible you will miss something in which case option #1 is a safer solution. if this is a newer version of IOS you may not be able to do this without his icloud password in which case, option #1 is your only option.

WTF is a BM?

Re: iCloud: A Cheater's Nightmare
I have no idea what a "BM" is, and you have not told us what kind of phone he has. But assuming it's an iphone, no, there is no practical way for you to do this. Apple takes great care to protect the privacy of icloud users. You might just want to consider a new boyfriend.

Catch my boyfriend cheating
My boyfriend has a history of cheating on me. I know his icloud login and password. Basically, I would like to know any way that I could possibly retrieve his deleted messages, kik messages, deleted phone calls, whatsapp messages, and so on. I am open to using any software capable of doing this, however would like to avoid anything that needs me to connect the phone to the computer and possibly anything expensive please avoid. Also, his iPhone is jailbroken, so maybe that opens up more options? Please let me know. Thank you.

Re: Catch my boyfriend cheating
From my experience once a cheater always a cheater.. And once they've done it you can never erase it from your memory no matter how many messages he deletes or hides. There is someone out there who will treat you better you just have to believe your worth someone better best of luck I know it doesn't pertain to your question but we as females have to take charge Of our own destiny and show we are worth more than lies and deceit..

Caught my boyfriend cheating

I know exactly what you mean, and even though I believe this too, it is extremely hard for me to let him go. Proof of this is that there's been multiple other females I have caught him cheating on me already. And those are only the ones I found out! So there may even be more. But until im ready to leave or until he makes a change, we are trying to work it out. We are currently trying couples therapy. But I always feel like he is lying anyway, so not sure if it will help.
Either way, I thank you for the advice from female to female, even tho its not what I asked for, lol. But there's not many females are looking out for one another, so still, thanks again.

Re: Caught my boyfriend cheating
I was in the same situation for 5 years.. I had to let it go... And I've been happier than ever I miss him everyday but ik some where out there is a man who will love me and not hurt me good luck and if your decided to stay and work it out you should forget the past and focus on the future.. Sometimes they feel if they are being accused why not just do it.. But ik what you mean about women not stickin together when we really should be more closer than we are to each other .. Once again good luck and I hope it works out for you

Caught my boyfriend cheating
Know your worth. Seems like you can't let go because you're afraid to be alone and won't find anyone else. The guy is a creep. Hopefully you won't catch any nasty STDs from him, that ought to alarm you enough to dump him. He won't change.

Re: Catch my boyfriend cheating
Wonderfone software works wonders on this type of thing however he may get a notificiation that you signed into his icloud account. you need his apple id and password to log into this software.

Re: Catch my boyfriend cheating
Thank you! I will try it. I will watch out for the email, I can delete it right away anyway if he does get one anyway so that's not a big deal.

Re: iCloud: A Cheater's Nightmare
My husband is cheating on me and I'm wanting to read his recent texts which he always deletes. I have done a back up on his phone without him knowing in the hope of reading his messages but I was told you need a computer to view them which I don't have. Is it possible to view what is backed up in iCloud without a computer?

Re: iCloud: A Cheater's Nightmare

what you are describing is impossible if all he did was use your wifi for his devices.
Look in your iCloud settings and see if he has put his account into your settings.

Re: Another cheater

you dont' really "log in", you have to configure the iCloud services on the iPad in the settings.. Just remember that when you do this, every other device using that icloud account is going to get all kinds of email and pop-up notifications about what you are doing.

What is interesting is there is random photos and other data in this file that doesn't neccesarly coincide with their search history recorded. WHat is this information and how does it get there. Do you know? Thanks so much - you are always so knowledgable.

I'm being snooped on (not verified)
Re: iCloud: A Cheater's Nightmare
I'm concerned that my husband has been snooping on me for a long time. I'm not a cheater and he already knows this since he's been snooping for 2 years. His phone shows a gallery of all my visited pages( with photo of content) on my devices including iMessages, call log, visited places (GPS), photos, e-mails, visited Safari pages, etc. Can this be accomplished with the ICloud? He states he wasn't aware this was happening. I don't believe this is true. I think my devices may be bugged. He also hacked my e-mail and blog....so I think he can read all my passwords. People can also snoop to see how much you know about them. My cell bill shows a lot of data activity nearly every day of the week...there may be spyware involved.

Re: iCloud: A Cheater's Nightmare

If he has your icloud login information, or if you share an iCloud account (VERY bad idea), he would have complete, wide open access to everything listed above - but, icloud would not put it into photos/screenshots (he would have to do that, or another app would have to do that).

iCloud
My husband's phone shows all my locations, photos, texts, web pages visited, phone numbers I've called etc. we have the same Apple ID. All this shows up in a slideshow of screenshotsof everything I do on my devices. Did he install a snooping app or can iCloud provide this very detailed report?

iCloud tracking an iPhone
Is there an app that I can download put in my partners, phone number, or iCloud or accept an invite on his his phone that will track his movements as they are happening? Not just where he is at any given moment but if he is traveling shows him traveling?

Re: iCloud tracking an iPhone
No. Any tracking app must be installed on the phone that you want to track.

Re: iCloud: A Cheater's Nightmare
My boyfriend signed onto my icloud on his phone (watched me type my password). I changed my password, and logged out of iCloud. Is he still able to look at all my stuff? Even if I am logged out, or changed my password, does it log him out too?
