Your Cell Phone Can Help You Spot Liars

Posted: Updated:

Spotting a liar can be tough, especially when they're being dishonest in writing.

But researchers from Brigham Young University say there are ways you can tell if someone is lying in a text. It's all about the timing.

A study found people who are lying in a digital message take longer to respond.

Researchers say liars also make more edits and send shorter messages.
