Cheating on your spouse just got a whole lot easier.
An updated app from the folks at Ashley Madison -- the dating site for people already in relationships -- offers new features that help members of the site keep their affairs on the down low.
According to CNBC, the app now requires a pin for access and features a priviate phone line equipped with a disposable number for chats with the "other woman" or "other man."
The app, which is available on iOS and Android devices, also boasts a "panic button," so users can remotely log out of Ashley Madison from any computer they had used to log on. When you press the panic button, the web page reportedly shuts down and switches over to a "local, family friendly website."
This isn't the first app to streamline the lives of busy two-timers, believe it or not. Click through the slideshow below for six more mobile apps designed to help cheaters cover their tracks.
The Slydial mobile app allows users to directly call somebody's voicemail, rather than actually connecting with them on the phone. If your mistress wants to reach you but doesn't want your spouse to find out, she can call your voicemail directly and let you know where to rendezvous. Sleazy or genius?
Advertised with the slogan "Love is blind, we keep it that way," the Call And Text Eraser app (CATE for short) helps adulterers by maintaining a hidden log of messages, calls and contacts. Also, all private information stored in the app can be deleted with one click. And if your spouse happens to walk into the room while you are accessing your hidden messages, you can shake the phone and the the app minimizes, causing scandalous texts to instantly disappear.
The TigerText app allows you to send text messages to someone else's phone with a deletion timer. After a designated amount of time passes, the message will be deleted from the recipient's inbox -- that way, you don't have to depend on the "other woman" (or man) to get rid of incriminating evidence. With TigerText, you also have the option to recall a previously sent message before and even after it has been opened by another party. Supposedly, the name is not a reference to the philandering golfer (for whom the app would have likely come in handy). Founder Jeffrey Evans told Time magazine the name was in place prior to the scandal.
At a quick glance, the Vaulty Stocks app looks like your run-of-the-mill Wall Street monitor, tracking the market's highs and lows of the day. But not all apps are what they seem; Vaulty Stocks is actually designed to keep private pictures and videos hidden from snooping spouses. Users can store racy photos from their mistresses in a hidden vault within the app to keep them far away from prying eyes.
The BlackBook app for BlackBerry allows users to create and maintain a list of hidden contacts (and accompanying text message conversations) that are kept separate from the regular phone address book and inbox. The BlackBook icon does not appear on the main home screen; instead, users must enter a special passcode in order to access it. Worried your spouse will see incoming message alerts? You can customize the alert display to say "System Memory Low" instead of having the name or phone number of the mistress pop up.
The Mobile Vault app not only hides contacts, pictures, videos and text messages, it also backs them up into a private cloud space -- that way if you happen to lose your phone, you won't lose any of your naughty photos or incriminating messages. If someone tries to break into the app by entering an incorrect password, the premium version of Mobile Vault will even snap a photo of the intruder.
