I am a woman who is 6 months pregnant with triplets. Lately my husband has been acting a little odd. He recently set up a passcode on his cell phone. He seems to always have it on him..I may be paranoid, but I am starting to think something is up, he gets texts but wont read them if I am right there.

honestly, i think that is the wrong thing to do. That idea will probably lead to a very negative fight that will draw upon all sorts of old unforgiven and unforgotten disputes. If you're husband is giving you insecure feelings, you should just talk to him and let him know how you are feeling. Maybe he can reassure you that your marriage is still thriving. but ask him if he would allow you to install such an app that would forward all his text messages to your phone or a PC to give you some reassurance.

Spyware is never a good thing. If it turns out he is up to nothing, you will loook rather foolish, and I know if someone didnt trust me and did that to me, it would have a HUGE negative impact on the relationship. You would be better having an adult style conversation with him, afterall he is the father of your children right? Just talk to him, see whats up, maybe he isnt up to anything, and your just paranoid.

I have not used such software, but you should be able to review call and text message logs on your cellphone bill. I know you can do this on Verizon anyway.

I'm not trying to be snarky. But, have you tried just asking what's up? "hey honey, why do you read your text messages in private?" Don't assume anything. Don't imply anything. Just ask.

Not only us spyware morally objectionable it can be extremely costly. Now I am offering legitimate advice not being snarky. How about a bit of couples counseling?

Let me get this out the way first - if this is a wind up it is a pretty poor one.

If not I apologise.

However, it sounds to me that you already knew he is cheating on you in which case you do not need any evidence from his phone - if you cannot work it out then you are faced with leaving the ******* - I mean who cheats on their pregnant wife and their three unborn kids?

You really need to speak to some friends or family about this - also checking in with your GP would be pretty good as well - pregnancy causes all sorts of wacky hormones to kick in and it could all be in your mind.

I would have to assume that since you are in an Android forum that your husband uses an Android device...? At this point, there is no known spyware that exists for Android that can be installed without the attacker (you...because spyware use is illegal) having physical access to the device and is able to install it directly on the phone. Please, do not allow any of these people try tell you that it can be done any other way. It's just not possible. That said, I'll state again that the use of spying applications is illegal, unless you have been given consent to monitor the communications of the target.

If you are considering divorce and would attempt to leverage spyware in order to uncover infidelity on the part of your husband, your attorney would not be able to use any of the information that was obtained from the use of spyware, since its use is illegal. As a matter of fact, you could find yourself in legal trouble, should the other party decide that they wanted to press charges. You could be charged under Title 18 U.S. Code for electronic fraud and/or general stalking.

Just something to think about. As someone who went through this with his ex-wife, and the ability to completely control her electronic life, I would highly recommend you just speak to your husband as an adult.

Mobile Spy. But.... as with most spy software, you have to physically install them on the phone itself. Will be hard if he has it locked all the time.

Also, there is the legal issue. If the phone belongs to him, and the account is in his name, you can/will be prosecuted for doing this.

Is your name on the account at all? If it is, you can always go into the store and change the billing like cory said. You might be able to if you have his SS number (ATT always asks for that when I try to change something over the phone, since I'm not the primary line).

I agree with everyone else though, you should talk to him, or even friends and family, before you do anything drastic. The passcode could be to keep anyone out.

I suspect the account is in his name. And if she somehow installs spy software, she will be prosecuted. Unfortunate, but true. Better to plaster his name over facebook and the forums...

If of course, it is true... But who are we to judge...

I am sorry that you are worried that your spouse might be cheating on you. But I know of an awesome program for your driod that i use on my kids phones. it does not let me listen to phone calls ut tell me who they call and does send me a copy of their text messages to my gmail account. they do not know that the software is on their phone. it is not openable either. you will just see a driod mail box icon in programs but when they click on it it wont open. looks like its apart of the driod mail system. The name of the programs is stealth tracker. Good luck.

About the only legal thing you can really do is hire a private investigator and an attorney. If the PI can find any evidence of adultery, the attorney should be able to use that to get a court order for SMS records from your cell phone provider. All of that can be used in a divorce settlement. Any sort of information received through spyware would not be admissable.

I'm going to assume you have Verizon or AT&T with an online account. You should ask him and be like, "I got a message from (insert carriers name) saying the bill wasn't paid and for more info goto the online account." Have him log in (you said before you didn't know the password to the online account) and let him look around online, then when he says he can't find anything just say it must have been a computer glitch. As long as he doesn't log out you should be able to go back on the same computer at a later time and view the detailed billing and view his calls and messages (its completely legal). I would watch him type in the password just in case it logs out but it shouldn't be a problem.

I hope if he is cheating on you, you make him pay! There is simply no excuse for cheating on your pregnant wife!
