Family Attorney Warns Unfaithful Spouses Beware- Your Tinder Activity can be Tracked

Kathryn Dekker - 4/28/2016

If you’ve never heard of a hook-up app called Tinder, it’s a social site that has become sort of a one-stop-shop for people who are looking to date, hook up, or simply see who else out there might be interested. The problem is, even married people are flocking to the site and entering into activities that are unbeknownst to their spouses.

Be careful, there’s now an app for that

Kurtz & Blum, PLLC 434 Fayetteville St., Suite 710 Raleigh, NC  27601  919-832-7700 919-832-2740 fax  http://www.KurtzandBlum.com

If you suspect your partner is on Tinder (a frightening thought in and of itself), there’s now a way to confirm it. For just $4.99, you can purchase Swipe Buster to check if your significant other is on the site. Once purchased, you only need to input his or her name, age and geographic location, and with that, Swipe Buster will then search Tinder’s database for people who fit the criteria. Swipe Buster’s search results also yield information on when the person last used Tinder, what their gender preference is and if they display photos.

Infidelity in the digital age

At the end of the day, Swipe Buster is just one of the latest tools in the growing field of technology designed to catch cheating spouses. Evidence of infidelity is so easy to find in the digital age that in cases where a spouse is cheating, there is likely a great deal of evidence to prove it. The evidence that comes to light could very likely lead to the need for a consultation with a family attorney.

More people than ever are using mobile devices and social media. People often don’t consider the consequences (or don’t care) of sharing their most intimate moments online, and this can be critical in divorce proceedings where one spouse has become unhappy with the other. Once evidence of infidelity is obtained, it can be potentially damning evidence for the cheating spouse. In many divorce cases, lawyers are successful in introducing improper online communication as evidence of infidelity.

Are you on the brink of a divorce?

If you have any concerns or issues about divorce, or simply want to learn more about the process, consult with a Raleigh divorce attorney with Kurtz and Blum today. If your situation is serious enough that there’s no way to turn back, a good divorce lawyer can help you find the most appropriate way for you and your spouse to go on your separate ways.
