People use pictures of some other people and create fake accounts to dupe innocent people for money and for some other reasons. So, it is very important to know whether your better half is an honest person or not.

Once you have an image of your boyfriend/ girlfriend then follow these steps:

  • Save a copy of the image on your laptop or desktop
  • Open “images.google.com” and upload the image there
  • You will get the search results related to the image uploaded

You can either find from the search results to see all the social media platforms where the picture has been uploaded or see in the “visually similar images” section to check. If the same profile picture is used on every social media account then voila! You have made the right choice. But, if you see that particular image on some strangers accounts then, you gotta get aware and think wisely before investing more time in that relationship.

Staying alert is very important to prevent yourself from any social media scam. Hope these tips will help you finding out the reality of your spouse, girlfriend or boyfriend.
