My husband is furious after I used easy iPhone hack to help his dad – everyone thinks I made a huge mistake

A WOMAN has been slammed for using an iPhone trick to track down her hubby on behalf of his father.

The unnamed wife used the iPhone’s Find My feature to find out where her other half’s business dinner was taking place.

She offered to use the tool for her father-in-law who said he had something time sensitive to discuss with his son.

They both tried to call him and got no answer.

“My father-in-law came over to talk to my husband because he wasn’t answering his calls,” she explained.

“He seemed pretty upset when he realised he wasn’t home and that he was having dinner with a potential business contact.

“He wanted to know where the dinner was taking place but I wasn’t sure and my husband never answered when I tried to call him.

“My father-in-law wanted me to keep trying because he said he had something time sensitive to discuss with my husband, but wouldn’t tell me what, so I offered to find out where he is with find my iPhone as my father-in-law made it seem serious.”

When the man’s father turned up at the restaurant he wasn’t impressed.

The lady said he was ” angry at me” over it when he got home.

“He said I shouldn’t have helped his dad find him and that he wasn’t happy that I was using find my iPhone to keep tabs on his location,” she continued.

“I told him I don’t keep tabs on him but he said he doesn’t want to hear it.

“He’s still upset with me.”

The unidentified woman was criticised on Reddit, after asking fellow users if she was in the wrong.

The overwhelming majority said she shouldn’t have breached her husband’s privacy in such a way.

“YTA (you’re the a**hole) for allowing the breach of your husband’s privacy without first demanding to know the facts to decide for yourself whether it was actually what he would want,” one user said.

“If it was an emergency, he would have said what it was,” another piped.

“Anything else should have waited until after the dinner. How embarrassing for him.”

A third person added: “In the days before mobile phones, the father-in-law would have just had to suck it up!

“Honestly, life these days leaves absolutely no privacy or respect for space.

“If you went out and someone called, they would need to wait til you were home and try again.

“Now days if you don’t text back within 10 mins people get so frustrated.”

However, some users also jumped to her defence.

“I would have done the same thing as you,” one said.

“My father-in-law would never ask me to do something like that unless it was extremely important.”
