This is a follow-up to our 7 Things Cheaters Should Do To Hide Their Tracks.
We now live in a society where cheating is accepted everywhere and loyalty seems to be non-existent anymore. Social media has taken over people's lives and people depend on it more than ever before. So many relationships end because of Facebook nowadays. You've all heard your friends say, "it's not official until it's Facebook official" when talking about a new relationship. The same thing happens when one ends. You change your relationship status and all of a sudden you have reply hell happening to your status change.
If you're unhappy in your relationship, you should try working things out. Try everything before giving up. But if you're in one of those situations where you just can't leave for whatever reason, you should hide your tracks VERY well. Below are just some ways you can cover your tracks when using Facebook. While we don't support cheating, we do support Sevenning.
Here are your seven ways cheaters should do to cover their tracks on Facebook:
This is an easy fix and probably one of the first things you should do. Facebook allows you to pick and choose who can see your relationship status. Make sure to only allow your significant other and their family/friends to see your relationship status. Everyone else should not be able to see it. Where to find it: Privacy Settings - Editing Your Timeline Info (up top in paragraph) - Basic Info.
You want to make sure only your friends can find you via Facebook. If you want someone to be your friend, you can add them yourself. Allowing just anyone to look you up can cause you some issues. So to simplify things, just change this setting to Friends Only to protect yourself. Where to find it: Privacy Settings - How You Connect
This option can be very annoying, but it's a necessity to cover your tracks. You'll have to categorize your friends into different lists. Here are some lists I'd recommend:
- Significant Other & Family: Put him/her and their family in here.
- Family: Keep your family members here. If your significant other is close to your mother, you can block family too.
- Coworkers: As the name says.
There are many other lists you can make. So it's up to you how you want to define them. Where to find it: When in your home screen, on the left side you'll see Lists. Highlight it and click More.
Turn Tags Off
You don't want a friend tagging you when you checked in at the stripclub or another girl tagging you on a picture you two took together during dinner last night when you were really supposed to be at your significant other's crib. So turn this feature off. Where to find it: Privacy Settings - How Tags Work
Don't Use Messaging
This will get people caught almost every time. Unfortunately, Facebook doesn't allow a mass delete just yet. So it's better to just avoid it as a whole and not use it at all. If someone sends you mail via Facebook, just delete it. If it's family, reply and delete. Keep it brief.
You've covered most of your tracks on the web, but is your phone covered? Most people use smart phones nowadays but forget to secure them. Always password protect your phone and choose a password that your significant other won't know. If they log in as you to your account, all of the tips above go out the window. So remember to secure any mobile device you may have plus more: phone, tablets, xbox, etc.
If the steps above are too hard, deactivate Facebook to avoid your problems. Where to find it: Account Settings - Security - Deactivate Your Account
Once again, we don't recommend cheating but we do recommend to score as much as possible. As we always say, Score Responsibly.
