Today, we can no longer do anything without leaving a digital trace behind. From Find My Phone apps to online banking, everything we do can be accessed by someone who is looking for that information. While the notion can be disconcerting as we go about our day to day activities, when it comes to private investigations, technology can be the key to cracking a case. It is much to hide than ever before thanks to the use of technology in private investigations.

Location Enabling Apps and Spy Software on Phones

Most of us make use of location enabling apps on our phones. Going beyond apps that are designed to help you locate your phone if you lose it, today users can even enable apps like Facebook to trace their location. More sophisticated spy software can be downloaded on an individual’s phone and works by intercepting the cellular network signals to determine their location. This not only enables PIs to keep track of their whereabouts but can also notify them of user activity on the phone. Such software can also be downloaded on tablets and computers.

Smart Locks

Today, many apartment and office buildings make use of keycards or fobs instead of the traditional lock and key system. Paired with data collection devices, PIs can track who is in the building at any given time as well as who has accessed the building through the unique IDs assigned to each keycard or fob.

Hidden Cameras

Pointing a security camera at someone is the best way of ensuring they will not act authentically. Today, PIs make use of hidden cameras disguised as a variety of items – teddy bears, clocks, air fresheners and more – to get the evidence they need. However, these have their limitations as once the subject moves out of view, they are unable to capture the necessary footage. Enter wearable hidden cameras in the form of watches and even glasses, which can move with the subject.

Sound Amplifiers

What happens when a PI needs to zoom in on a conversation between two people in a noisy environment? These nifty devices known as sound amplifiers allow PIs to pick up on conversations conducted at whisper level.

Some people may use the terms background check and background investigation interchangeably, but the truth is, there are significant differences between them. While the information available in a background check will often be replicated in a background investigation but in more detail, one or the other may be a better option for you depending on your purposes.

Background Checks

Background checks are typically done with the intention of verifying a person’s integrity. Common instances where a background check can be required include scanning an applicant for a job, especially when it comes to jobs where employees are responsible for the wellbeing of others such as nursing and teaching. When you go to a PI to get a background check run, the name of the subject is put through a database only available to law enforcement and PIs.

Below is a list of data that can be acquired from background checks:

  • Date of birth
  • Address and address history
  • Criminal records and judgments (if any)
  • Licenses
  • Properties owned
  • Financial and bankruptcy history
  • Employment history
  • … and more

The problem with background checks is that databases can provide inconsistent information. To this end, an experienced PI will always run a background check through multiple databases before comparing and deciphering the information obtained.

Background Investigations

Background investigations are much more in-depth than background checks and are often conducted to look into a person’s past to determine who they really are. Besides the information that can be glimpsed from a background check, publicly available records can also be utilized to gather insights into a person’s life and character.

In addition, interviews are often conducted as part of a background investigation and can provide valuable insights into an individual’s life. For instance, they may have gone by a different name or lived a completely different life before. This information can be used to sieve out any inconsistencies, misrepresentations, omissions and more.

Background Check or Investigation?

To summarize things, a background check is used to scratch the surface of a person’s character through objective data and information. However, such information alone often does not tell the full story. To truly validate the character of a person, a background investigation is your best bet at leaving no stone unturned.

When you suspect that your spouse is cheating, the first thing you need is evidence. Most people do not have the time or expertise to conduct their own investigations into their spouse’s life. The best choice is to hire private investigators (PIs) who can carry out an affair investigation discreetly and accurately. However, it is a big plunge that we understand some people may be hesitant to take. In this article, we address some of the FAQs about affair investigations.

What Do I Do After Hiring A PI?

It is important that you act as normally as possible after hiring a PI. Do not do anything you wouldn’t usually do or hint to your spouse that you may be investigating them. If you do so, it would make it significantly harder for our PIs to carry out their work.

What If My Spouse Finds Out I Hired A PI?

At Probity Investigations, our professional PIs are dedicated to upholding the highest levels of confidentiality. We will never reveal to anyone that you have engaged our services and our PIs are trained to detect if a subject becomes suspicious during the course of the investigation. When you engage our services, you are entitled to the same level of confidentiality you would enjoy with an attorney.

What If My Spouse Is Not Cheating?

After conducting a thorough investigation, we report only facts to you. If it turns out that your spouse is not cheating, you can enjoy peace of mind with that fact as well as knowing that they will never need to find out you hired a PI.

How Many PIs Are Used in An Affair Investigation?

In standard cases, only one PI is used. This is the wisest option in order not to arouse suspicion and to keep costs down. However, in more challenging cases such as following a subject in a high-security building, two or more investigators can be used.

Will I Receive Evidence When the Investigation Is Completed?

After we have completed the investigation, you will be provided with a written report as well as videotapes documenting the evidence behind your spouse’s infidelity.

Will My PI Testify in Court?

If it turns out that your spouse has been cheating and you decide to take them to court, our PIs are able to testify for you for an additional fee.
