I set up all of my DHs accounts including his bank PIN number. He doesn’t have Facebook and if his email wasn’t on his phone he wouldn’t know how to get into that either. I’ve told him all of my passwords before but doubt he knows them.

Yeah we know each other’s passwords. We trust each other and have nothing to hide. It’s also just for convenience.. sometimes we check each other’s email etc.

We don’t do this because we’re convinced the other is going to cheat or something. Anyone can set up a free email account and lie about it if they want to.

We know each others’ phone passcodes but that’s it.  I have no interest in knowing his work or email passwords, and financial things are best left separare IMO.

I know two. He knows one of mine. I know his bank PIN. I don’t really see it as a “moment of trust” to share this and I definitely believe in privacy even in a marriage.

katielove:  Nope. Not a single one (maybe Amazon Prime.. but I doubt it). I don’t know a single one of his. I will never know and I am fine with that.

If I wanted to read his email his phone is upstairs and he is out running. It is isn’t like he is hiding anything. There is just no reason to share.

Of course he has been told them.  I’m confident he remembers None.

We know all of each other’s passwords and PINs, but I don’t think he would remember mine if he needed to use it…I usually have to remind him of the password if I need him to login to an account for me. For us, the password sharing came naturally over time. I don’t think we shared any of that the first two years of dating, but as we got more and more involved in each other’s lives, I’d help him with mundane tasks and vice versa. It was just easier to say, “Hey, here’s my password for this” than to stop everything we’re doing to enter a bunch of passwords, especially if we’re not in the same place. Even though we’re not married yet, I handle a lot of our budget stuff, and a lot of information I need for random events or school go to his email. It’s never been an issue for us.

katielove:  Yeah, but it’s not an act of trust, it’s an act of convenience.

Fiance can unlock my phone and get onto my laptop and that’s about it. Only because that’s all she remembers lol The only password I wouldn’t give up is fb. Idc about the others.

I know 99% of hers. phone, email, bank accounts, phone…the only thing I don’t know is her PIN. I used to but don’t use her card so why would I remember

katielove:  Ive told my SO my passwords and thensome. I trust him, and i know he trusts me. I also tend to tell him in case I cant reach my items and need him to review my things.

I mostly want his AMAZON PRIME password, so i keep asking when i forget, so I’m good with that!!!! HAHA!

If H could remember them, he would know them. I don’t hesitate to give them to him if he needs them for some reason. I also know all of his passwords. Heck, he usually has me set up his PINs for him so that he can ask me what they are when he forgets them.

Yes, we know all of each. I use the same few passwords for everything but work stuff, he has no reason to need those. we know each other’s pins and passwords for just about everything and stuff like our bank account and phone bill is a shared joint password.

We mainly use the same passwords for social media and stuff like that. I know his and he knows mine. Of course we know each other’s phone lock as well, that one’s a given almost since we need to use each other’s phones at times. As for banking passwords, we don’t really share those.

We know phone and ATM pins (we each have a 4-digit number that we tend to use for that kind of stuff), and I think he knows my AT&T password, but that’s it.  We have a joint checking account that links to each of our individual checking accounts and savings accounts, so we can each see that using our own login (but can’t see each others individual accounts).  It works fine for us.
