Can A Husband Or Wife Spy On Their Spouse's Emails?

Can A Husband Or Wife Spy On Their Spouse's Emails?
By Ed Opperman
If you suspect your husband of infidelity you may be tempted to hack into his email account in order to read his private emails. This could be a huge mistake. Even if you suspect your man is cheating you do not have a right to invade another persons privacy with email hacking. In fact
recently a husband who logged onto his wife's email account was arrested and is now facing up to 5 years in prison.This man is being charged with felony computer misuse, and faces up to five years in prison after logging into the email account of now ex-wife on a shared laptop using her password.

So while it may be tempting to
try to do it yourself when investigating infidelity it's really
something that's best left up to the professionals. A professional investigator will know what is and isn't legal when investigating  infidelity. Had this man consulted with a professional he could have saved himself a great deal of time, money and aggravation.

There are many legal ways through digital forensics to obtain evidence of infidelity. There are also methods to trace emails to online dating  sites and social networks that will return the evidence of infidelity you are seeking. if a professional is investigating and obtaining this evidence they will know how to carefully document their efforts and maintain a chain of custody so that the evidence can be used in court.

As an investigator many times a client will contact me and ask me to get their spouses email passwords or commit some other kind of crime. As a professional it's up to me to explain what can and cannot be done legally.Computer forensics, cell phone forensics, Internet infidelity searches are just a few ways to legally recover evidence of cheating spouse activity. But these are only a few of the things a professional investigator can do for you to expose a cheating spouse.

It's so important to remember that every step taken in
any investigation must be done in complete compliance with all the applicable laws. Before consulting with a private detective be sure to ask if they have experience in this field of investigation. Be wary of online web sites offering do it yourself spy gear and wire tapping equipment. while it may be lawful for them to sell the devices it still may be illegal for you to misuse the equipment to spy or your husband
or wife.
