Why do people give partners their passwords?

I have often heared of and read that a lot of people give their passwords to their partners. In my opinion, this is not a sign of trust but rash and could cause more problems than it is supposed to prevent. However, what do you think about this? Have you ever given your passwords away and why? Why do people give partners their passwords?

  • My boyfriend and I have each others passwords because we borrow each others electronic devices and help each other with stuff. We are a team, and we trust each other. We don't snoop on each other and we're not hiding anything, so sharing that info is merely practical.

    Anything that we don't help each other with, like financial accounts or health stuff, we have not shared passwords for.

  • We both use the same password almost everywhere, so we haven't shared ours. I don't see any point. I know people do it to show trust, but I think it's just ridiculous. I don't need to get into my boyfriend's accounts to trust him.

    • That's what trust is about im my opinion. Trust = not controlling and standing behind this by all means.

    • How do you think about this

  • Eh, my boyfriend and I have the same phone passcode because we're usually watching things on our phones together. He also knows my password for pretty much everything because I usually use variations of the same one. He hardly uses anything that requires a password.

  • I don't really get it. This sounds very. . . paranoid, but I haven't let anyone know my passwords. Not even my brother

    • Why is this then paranoid? You do not share your passwords and I think you understand my point.

      One of my brothers once went through my WhatsApp Contacts and left me with ridiculous started Chats with a lot of irritated girls. It was hilarious what some of them sent back

    • Lmao thats what i did to my brother on whatsapp too. He got me back and that ONE time i left my phone unlocked he messaged everyone πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  • I know my boyfriends phone password and he knows mine but we will never snoop on each other.

    • What is the point then? Knowing you could control him but both agree on not doing it? That's mindfuck

    • Sometimes I need to use his internet or make a call. And sometimes he does same with mine.

  • Yeah when I was like a teenager.. Now it's not that important. But at the same time I woudn't care if they saw anything. I have nothing to hide. I do know this one guy who is very flirty (he's like that with EVERY chick and no we were never involved) and is often asking for photos (I dont send them nor do I even talk to him that much anymore) or sending me ones... My ex and I used to make fun of him. One time he asked me for a nude so I sent him one.. of my ex πŸ˜‚ With his blessing of course.

  • Well the reason why people give the passwords to others is because they trust them because either they are a good friend or family member. But personally I don't give the password to anyone. But if I do I always change my password instantly. I always have two step authentication activated just in case they try messing with my security questions or whatever. I think it's bad that people give passwords to other people.

  • It's a sign of trust. If you can't trust your partner with your passwords, ask why? Why can't you trust them with it? 99 tomes out of 100, it's because you or them are hiding something. That isn't healthy at all...

    • Trust = not need to controll and even though standing behind your partner and his/her actions. That's my opinion and I think letting them be how they want to is a lot more healthy. No need to rethink that

    • (Long term short) Remember this: People often have things that cannot or shouldn't be shared in order to keep the relationship healthy.
      That is what I try to tell you.

    • Alright I got you

  • I haven't and won't. I think being in relationship means sharing somethings not all. I want to retaing my personality even after marriage and want the same for my wife.

  • Married - yes. Dating - no.
    Depends on the level of trust.

    I always say, trust but verify. :)
