Divorce Your Technology Too

The New Year is almost here, and we all know what that means for many unhappily married couples: Splitsville. Some couples may be just holding on long enough to make it through the holidays, or some spouses may be waiting for the holidays to end to drop the hammer. Either way, divorce is a serious undertaking which requires completely separating one spouses’ belongings from the other spouses’. But beyond packing up your knickknacks and clothes in boxes there is another world that needs to be cleaned out and separated as well, and that is the cyber world.

Technology is a wonderful tool to connect with those you love, but when you’re trying to break from certain people it can be easy to forget about your cyber world. Here are a few helpful tips to making your new single, private life truly private.

iCloud Hazards: iCloud is a great way to ensure you will never lose precious pictures and more because it backs up your phone, laptop, and more on the easily accessible web. If you had iCloud, chances are your spouse has access to it too. Disconnecting your device from the marital iCloud may seem like a hassle, but it’s well worth it. Breaking the connection between iCloud and your phone or laptop will prevent your ex from the occasional late night stalking. It’s not cruel or selfish to do this, it’s smart. Would you want your ex reading your texts?

Wipe the Memory Clean: You may think we are just paranoid now, but if the temptation is there, so will your ex. If you used the family computer just think of all the passwords, usernames, credit card information, and more you saved and stored. Better be safe than sorry, so do yourself a favor and wipe the computer’s history clean. Don’t forget to check and make sure your auto-populated usernames and passwords are cleaned out too.

Location, Location, Location: You may forget all of the nifty things your smartphone can do, but you’re ex might not forget. When you got your smartphone no doubt you went through the phase of buying any and every app you could get, some of which probably included a locator or tracking device. Some apps make the great stalking game open to friends, so check your friends list to make sure you don’t mind any of them knowing where you are. Some smartphones even have a built in tracking device in case they were lost, which can easily be used to track your whereabouts at any time.

Change is Good: If you follow any of these tips, please let this be one of them: Change your passwords. Most, if not all, couples share or just tell each other passwords without a second thought; but your relationship has changed and it’s not a bad idea to change your passwords along with the relationship status.
