People Are Going Berserk Over This Woman Who Lets Her Husband Spy On Her With An App
Privacy? Meh, who needs such a thing. Certainly not this couple anyway. Two days ago, teacher Catharine Higginson, 45, told The Mirror about a discovery she’d made regarding her husband, James, 42.
“After 10 years of marriage I had always believed husband James and I didnt have secrets from one another.
Turns out there was a huge, totally shocking one that I only discovered by accident.
Last year I was teaching in a particular building at school where there was no mobile phone reception which meant I missed a text from my bank with an activation code to make an important financial transfer.
When I got home I started to apologise to my husband James who immediately replied, “Oh, don’t worry about it – I’ve sorted it.”
When I looked at him, puzzled, he continued: “I was able to get into your phone and locate the code to activate the transaction” before casually adding: “I don’t need you here to be able to read your text messages.”
How could he do such a thing? Well, it turns out that he has installed a tracking app by Cerberus on her phone and those used by her children Daisy, 19, Tilly, 16, and Max, 12, from her first marriage.
Run, run for your life.!! Apparently not, she added, “while I was very shocked at first about the extent of the snooping I ultimately don’t have a problem with him doing this because I’m not up to anything. But I can see that for those for whom cheating is in their DNA, they’d panic about being caught out.”
Unsurprisingly it ignited some opinions on Twitter.
Even the Mirror, who broke the story, had a columnist criticise the behaviour.
Buzzfeed contacted the man in question and he told them.
“People need to bear in mind that we use this app passively – it’s there if we need it. I don’t sit behind my screen monitoring my family! There are loads of other apps like messenger and whats app that pull exactly the same type of data. The only difference here is that we are using the data rather than some big organisation. Equally they’ll find my iPhone feature is an integral element of all iPhones – is this spying?!”
Tell us what you think, is it creepy or is it caring?
