In a world of technology, leaving a trail behind can get you caught with your pants down. Technology also tends to be the way to avoid getting caught, with many hidden apps that can disappear on your phone.

The apps that cheaters use are those that don't leave evidence, whether it's messages that disappear, photos that are blurred out, or contact lists disguised as people they actually know. Some apps don't even need to be accessed through your partner's phone!

Here are some of the best cheating apps to have an affair without your husband or wife finding out.

10 Best Cheating Apps

1. Avira Vault

Want a safe place to save all those naughty photos you took, or a place to save things your mistress sends you?

Avira Vault is a cloud-based, encrypted vault that allows you to store the goods away from your partner’s prying eyes. More importantly, cheating spouses can get the paid version, which allows you to make a fake account to dupe your partner into thinking they searched your cell phone and found nothing.

2. Signal

Signal is one of the most secure chat clients ever made, and is both password-protected and double-encrypted for extra protection. Much like Avira Vault, it also stores information, photos, and other sensitive data.

The best part? Well, Signal has just about every bell and whistle for privacy, and it looks like a business app.

3. Vaulty Stocks

Vaulty Stocks is an app that looks like a stock portfolio app, but actually is an online vault where you can keep your illicit affair photos and videos. Needless to say, it’s pretty handy to have if you’re doing some sketchy stuff.

It acts just like Avira Vault, but, you know, it’s a bit more discreet and less obvious.

4. Ashley Madison

If you’re going to try to find someone to cheat with, Ashley Madison is one of the best apps to have an affair. It’s just like the dating site, allows you to message affair partners, and also just lets you do it all with a “cover app” that looks totally innocent compared to what’s really going on.

5. Facebook

Yes, Facebook! Believe it or not, a very large percentage of people find their affair partner of choice on Facebook.

If you’ve got the online messaging game that’s strong enough to do it, this app will be one of the most useful — and innocent-looking — of the bunch. (The same can be said about Instagram.)

10. Viber

Viber is a third party messaging app. This app allows you to create secret chats and the messages in the conversation that delete automatically after a certain amount of time. You'll have the freedom to send images, videos, and incriminating messages that just disappear.

Best Apps To Catch a Cheater

2. pcTattletale

pcTattletale is a spy app you can put on your partner's device, but to find out anything, you have to physically have access to their phone. Once you install it, it will immediately disappear and you will be the only one who knows it's secretly recording.
