DH and I both have passwords on our phones simply because we have 4 kids. Our oldest (9) is so super nosey! She has tried countless times to figure out our passwords so she can get on social media, take pics or read our text messages. But DH knows my password and I know his. If one of us doesn’t have our phone handy or it is charging we just use each others.

forgottenme:  we both have passwords! I don’t know his, I think its our anniversary but im not sure.. my fingerprint unlocks his phone. I have a password on mine, but its just because I use my phone for EVERYTHING like The Bee, banking, emailing, texting about gifts 😉 I’m just private

We both have passwords on our phones incase we loose them, it gives us a little time to use a tracking “lost cell phone app” to find out phones. There is also banking & insurance and other important apps on our phones that could contain information we don’t want anyone else getting into.

With that said, We both know the passwords to each others phones. It sounds like your DH has a password but you do not know it? Is this correct?

We have passwords on our phones simply for a safety feature if it is ever stolen/lost. 

I know his password and he knows mine. It’s not a big deal, really. We just take precautions when going out because we don’t want anyone to get a hold of our bank information or contacts with people close to us.

We both have passwords for security reasons.

I don’t feel any need to look at FI’s phone and while I have nothing to hide, if I found him randomly going through my phone without asking, I’d be ticked off. every relationship is different, we both respect each other’s privacy and would ask first.

We know each other’s passwords because we use each other’s phones. I have a password because the baby likes to play with my phone, and he has a password because people at work like to mess with each other’s phones as a joke.

We both have passwords on our phones (and fingerprint locks) and we know each other’s passwords. 

When we were dating, I didn’t know his and he didn’t know mine nor did we ask.

forgottenme:  I have a password on my phone, computer, accounts, etc. So do he. We’re both allowed our privacy and we trust each other. We don’t know each other passwords. 

What are your feelings on this?

We both have passwords because it’s a smart thing to do these days with so much of your personal information readily available in one place… one place you can easily lose!

I know his, he knows mine.  I don’t generally use his without asking him first.. usually because mine is dead or inaccessible, or because his plays media better.  I think the only time he’s ever used mine is when I’m driving and responding to messages for me or when I swapped with him for a day once because I had to go out and mine was dead.

We both have passwords; I know his but he doesn’t know mine. We don’t care lol. We never try to look at each others phone because we know the other isn’t doing anything ‘bad.’ It’s all about trust. I would never force him to give me his password and vice versa, and I’d never expect him to remove his password.

You are allowed privacy in a marriage. Even though neither of us does anything ‘bad,’ its just about having privacy. My Fiance doesn’t need to know how many times per day I check this website (a lot lol) or read my personal messages to friends on Facebook. Or whatever.

By The Way we both had passwords initially for work/safety reasons. If he changed his password tomorrow I wouldn’t demand he give it to me.

When we started dating, I had a laptop and tablet, he had a few desktop computers.  Instead of creating profiles for each other, we just gave each other our passwords.  That being said, we both did a clean-up beforehand, neither of us wanted the other coming across anything upsetting for no reason….

Neither of us have passwords on our phone, but if he did I wouldn’t bat an eye on it. I know almost all his for certain sites and stuff, but I don’t feel the need to ever go snooping.

We both know each other’s phone passwords, but it’s not so that we can check each other’s phones or invade privacy. If I need to look something up and my phone’s not around but his is, I’ll ask to use his; that sort of thing. Note that I will ask to use his phone – I do not treat it as though it is my property. We have nothing to hide, but we respect each other’s right to not be snooped upon.

There is no reason to hide the password, and there is no reason to snoop.

forgottenme:  We just got new phones and set up passwords, but I’m not sure why. If it’s ever lost someone can get into it when someone else calls it so we may as well dump the passwords. We never had them before and we DO know each other’s. I have no reason to think there would be any funny business and he can trust me as well.
