Catch a cheater by recovering their browser history
One clear signal that something weird might be going on with your spouse is if you type in a commonly-used page like Facebook, and it doesn’t offer you the option in the drop-down bar of selecting it. While nine times out of ten they’re just hiding porn searches, you should also know that there are several sites out there that cater specifically to spouses who are interested in having affairs. So if your longtime girlfriend, boyfriend, husband, or wife has been cheating on the internet, then there’s a few ways you can figure that out.
Catch a cheater with System Restore
If the browser history has been cleared then one way to recover it is by using the built in function of a system restore. System restore allows you turn your computer back to a point before the browser history was deleted. This is generally the easiest way to recover the browser history once it was deleted.
Firstly, you must ensure that system restore is enabled on your computer, and you must have already created a system restore point to revert to. Most of the time, if you have the feature turned on, it will automatically create a restore point once an application is installed or on a weekly basis. System Restore can be turned on from the System Properties dialog tab.
Then, if you want to revert to the restore, you load up the System Properties dialog tab once again and click over the System Protection tab. There will be an option for System Restore.
Once that’s done, the browser history will be recovered so long as it was saved before it was deleted and if your spouse or significant other was cheating on the web, you will know that from their browser history.
Catch a cheater with Recovery Apps
Recovery apps to recover deleted data will differ depending on what OS you are working with. In other words, users working with OSX and users working Windows will need to find different software in order to recover the lost data.
This is your best option for recovery software as it is specifically geared toward recovering lost files. Information such as your browser history is stored in a file and when that file is deleted it’s only sort of gone. The memory is freed for the computer to use but the information itself is not gone, only forgotten. Programs like Recuva can find and restore them.
Alfred for OSX
If you’re worried that your spouse is cheating on the internet then one way to recover the browsing history is with a program like Alfred for OSX. Alfred is a desktop search engine and even when the browser history is deleted within the browser it will none the less be recorded within a program like this. If you know what you’re looking for, like affair dating websites, cheating sites, or fling sites like Tinder, then clearing the browser history will not prevent you from finding out.
Everything for Windows
Everything does the same thing that Alfred does except for Windows. It is a search and launcher app that will allow you to run various searches for both Windows applications and web pages as well. Once again, it helps to know what you’re looking for, so researching popular cheating sites, and dating sites, will definitely help you catch a cheater.
