• Listening or recording devices to eavesdrop on the cheater’s conversations.
• Hidden cameras in all sizes and shapes, often disguised as common household items, to secretly view what the cheater is doing.
• GPS tracking devices to monitor where the cheater goes, or the location of the cheater’s car.
• Keyloggers and other software or gadgets to install on the cheater’s computer to monitor their e-mails, Instant Messages, chats, or other online activities.

Federal law makes it unlawful to record telephone conversations except in one party consent cases which permit one party consent recording by state law. What that means is a person can record their own telephone conversations without the knowledge or consent of the other party in those states that allow one party consent.
It's important to understand the difference between what has become known as one party consent and two party or all party consent. One party consent simply means that one party to the conversation must have knowledge and give consent to the recording. Two party or all party consent means that every party to the conversation must have knowledge and give consent to the recording.
In all 50 states and through federal law, it's considered illegal to record telephone conversations outside of one party consent. Florida is one the states that require all party consent. The Federal Communications Commission goes further into details on recording telephone conversations and states that the party recording must give verbal notification before the recording and that there must be a beep tone on the line to indicate that the line is being recorded.
Federal law now makes it illegal to record both wireless and cell phone conversations outside of one party consent. You used to be able to go into places like Radio Shack and purchase scanners that would lock onto the frequencies needed to pick up wireless and cell phone conversations. These scanners are now illegal to sell or be in possession of. Hire a Licensed Private Investigator Like Bill Warner who provides surveillance of a Cheating Mate to find out the truth.
