iCloud: A Cheater's Nightmare

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.

The Find Friends App:

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.

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?

I want to see my girlfriends iMessages. I have her iCloud password. If I sign into her iCloud on my phone, Will I get her messages. And will she be able to see mine from her phone?

So, if someone buys software like mSpy to track my iPhone, but hasn't installed it on my iPhone, but instead is accessing my info through my iCloud account because they had my password. MSpy has a key logger function. If I then change my iCloud login ID AND password, can a software program like mSpy get my new iCloud credentials via its key logger?

So if I set up an iTunes account on my sons iPad using same as on my IPhone then my ex can see texts and pictures being sent from my iPhone without having my Phone?

If you need to check on your partner's sincerity, recover iCloud password, employee's honesty, recover email passwords, social networks (i.e facebook, twitter, Instagram) passwords. change your school grades, clear your criminal records, gain access to bank accounts, or buy viruses. contact me through: vietnamguru1 (at) g m ail dot com

Not exactly.
You would have to create an iCloud account (not necessarily the same as an iTunes account). you would have to configure both devices to use that account for iMessages and Photos - then you would be able to see photos and send/see iMessages on both devices. To also see TXT messages (which are different from iMessages) you would also have to turn on Text Message forwarding on your iphone, and add that iPad to the list of devices authorized to receive your text messages.

Generally speaking, sharing the same iCloud account between two different people is a very bad idea (as you point out about your ex)..

I set up an iCloud account on my sons iPad for iTunes for him to play games Now his mom seems to know things that nobody else knows .Can she see my text messages and pictures I been sending? I changed password on that account so will that stop her from seeing things if she has access?

if you used YOUR icloud account and if she has access to the iPad or has that password, then she could potentially see your imessages, txt messages, emails (if you use icloud email), photos, and your location. Yes, changing the password would make it stop if she had that password..But it wont stop if she has access to the iPad.

If you setup a new, unrelated iCloud account for your son there is no way she would have access to anything of yours unless she knows your iCloud password.

How do I block her from seeing anything after changing password?I no longer have access for iPad

When you change your iCloud password you will be prompted to enter the new password an all devices using that iCloud account. If you don't enter the new password, that device will no longer be able to connect to the iCloud service.

There is another option called Two Step Verification which would make it impossible for her (or anyone) to use your iCloud account without having your iPhone IN THEIR HANDS.. It's a bit inconvenient, but it increases your security by 1000%.. you can read about it here: Read about Apple Two Step Verification".
