Cell phone linking while you are married can make life simpler; you and your spouse can easily share photos, documents, and pertinent personal information (i.e. locations, banking information, etc.). Unfortunately, that same technological feature can be your undoing in an Illinois divorce. Learn how you can protect your personal digital information in the following sections.
Email Accounts and Linked Cell Phones
Of all the information that your spouse can access from a linked cell phone account, emails are perhaps the most concerning. That is because most people now receive legal advice through email. Bank account alerts may also be sent through email. As such, divorcing parties are encouraged to change the password to their email accounts before they even initiate a divorce. If you are not the initiator, change your passwords as soon as you receive notification of the impending divorce.
