Some methods private investigators use include online investigations, covert surveillance and GPS tracking:

Online Investigations

Many unfaithful partners take advantage of the internet to cheat. Your partner could be flirting on social media, online dating or secretly arranging meetings with others.

A private investigator Essex will thoroughly investigate your partner’s online behaviour to look for signs of infidelity. They will track down any suspicious emails and messages, as well as look for any unusual activity on social media. Specialist software can also be used to determine where and when a photo was taken.

Covert Surveillance

Covert surveillance involves a team of professional investigators following your partner and recording any suspicious behaviour. They will be able to spot if your partner has been meeting someone else, or lying about their whereabouts.

Covert (undercover) surveillance is one of the main ways private investigators catch cheaters UK. There are three distinct types:

  • Static surveillance: an agent stays stationed outside a property and will film or record a person’s movements at that address
  • Mobile surveillance: a team of agents will follow the person to discover where they go and when
  • Field surveillance: in rural areas, agents can use camouflage and specialist equipment (such as thermal imagery) to track someone.

Agents may also  employ hidden cameras and listening devices (UK laws depending) to uncover your partner’s indiscretions.

GPS Tracking

Private investigators can use GPS trackers to monitor your partner’s movements. The tracker will allow you to keep an eye on them in real-time, so any suspicious behaviour can be spotted straight away.

GPS trackers are particularly beneficial in situations where more traditional methods of surveillance are not possible or practical. They can be discreetly attached to a car or used to track someone’s mobile phone.

Licensed private investigators are aware of the regulations and will ensure that every method they use is legal.
