Remember the iCloud scandal? Where the iCloud was hacked and pictures of countless celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence, Victoria Justice, Ariana Grande, etc. were leaked onto the internet. Sounds like the worst thing to happen ever, doesn’t it?
Ever since its rise in popularity, more and more people are turning towards it. Not because they actually have a reason to send a sext, but because it is the “IT” thing now and they are the trend chasers. According to a recent study, there are three major types of sexting, which are:
Type 1: People in a RelationshipThis class of people refer to exchange steamy message with the people they are in a relationship with. These messages may include anything at all – a picture, a video, a sound clipping, a text, etc. Such a sexting relationship exists between a husband and a wife, or a long distance (or otherwise) girlfriend and boyfriend, etc.
Type 2: CheatersThis group basically comprises of individuals who are in relationship with other people but at the same time they like to sext with others who are not their partners. People who are bored of their monotonous lives tend to follow this path, with most of them just looking for a steamy short-lived affair that could add some spice to their lives, without the knowledge of their current partners.
Type 3: The HopefulsThis group includes that class of people who are looking to be in a relationship and have someone in their sights they’d like to be their other halves. Therefore, they exchange such raunchy material in order to attract the other person.
We have already mentioned how chasers “sext” trend just because it is the new thing to do. Such sexters usually include children. Children i.e., teens who are not yet of legal age and who can be legally tested by law as adults if they are found in possession of such explicit material for possession and distribution of child pornography, even if the picture is their own. Therefore, not only those partners whose other halves are cheating on them but concerned parents need to invest into spy applications to ensure their own protection and the protection of their loved ones.
Why Use Spy Applications?The name spy app sounds notorious to people with delicate sensibilities but it is the only solution to keep a close and keen eye on your children and partner because of its various features, a few of which are:
Stealth ModeSince spy applications mostly work on stealth mode, this way you can monitor your child or your spouse easily without their knowledge. Additionally, with remote access you do not even have to access the target device physically. All you have to do is login to your account and access all their activities in real time.
Text Message MonitoringMonitoring messages is always in your favor because this is where teens and potentially cheating partners conduct most of their communications. It is also the primary source of sending and receiving sexts.
Additionally, monitoring texts with cell phone spy can also let you know:
- Who your child or partner is sexting?
- Who is Sexting them?
- What is the time frame of sexts being sent and received?
- What is their frequency?
Email MonitoringAnother way your teen or your partner might be sexting somebody is through email. It is another discreet form of messaging that gives you information about the person sexting and vice versa as well as the timeframe of the sexts.
Access Browsing HistoryIf your other half is visiting websites like Tinder, J-date or match.com, or your child is visiting inappropriate websites, then their browser search history may present the evidence to it all. Therefore, keeping a close eye on it will always be in your best favor.
The Bottom LineTechnology is indeed taking over the world, but the intention behind its creation was pure. No matter how off the tracks it uses have gone in the recent years, only technology can help combat it. Therefore, use of spy apps to keep sexting at bay is not only good for you and your family from a legal point of view, but from a moral and psychological point of view as well.
