iCloud: A Cheater's Nightmare



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.


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.


Are you serious???????!!!!! You plan on staying with this JERK? Then you deserve what you get. Go on Jerry Springer. It is easy to leave this dirt bag, unless he is throwing tons of money at you and even then you should move on. I read somewhere that it is like 3 men to every woman. Where the hell is he finding them? OH! And think about the diseases he is going to bring home and give you. How many other women have you kissed? Think about it......

How would "...throwing tons of money at you" make it remotely close to being ok?

For anyone who agrees with that mentality then it sounds like you belong with a cheater being that BOTH of you have defective characters!

Why can't everyone just give her the information without judging her ? She didn't ask for a counseling session.

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 u 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 u 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

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.

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.

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.

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?

I want to check if my boyfriend is cheating on me. I Have his password to his iCloud. If I sign into his iCloud he get an alert saying some else's device has logged into your iCloud? Don't want to know that I checked

Somehow all my contacts got deleted but when I went to write a new message I had all my boyfriends contacts in my phone when I typed any letter his and my old contacts showed up I asked him why he said all he did is sync his phone to his iPad using my wifi not from my phone but thru my tv service I'm not cheating I'm not doin anything wrong I just want to know how this could happen if I never made an iCloud and he says he didn't sync my phone to his iPad something is up and I think he's lying can u explain how he would have my contacts and I have his but my whole contact list was deleted

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.

He came clean he hacked into my phone thru my internet and set up his iCloud on my phone ... But he's the one feeling dumb because he saw I wasn't doin anything wrong
