    He knows some of mine, because I’ve asked him to log into certain accounts to take care of things for me, when I didn’t have access to a computer. I’ve never had need for any of his though.

    ETA: We have nothing to hide, but we’re both pretty independent. We’re definitely not the couple who would ever share an email or FB account or something like that.

    He knows some of mine, I know some of his.

    I don’t ever check any of his stuff though and he doesn’t check mine.

    Somethings yes like the password to pay the cable bill to make updates to our phone plan. I also know his email and facebook password as he’s had me pull things up for him. He doesn’t have any of my passwords because he’s never been interested to ask.

    I know some of his passwords, and others I don’t know.  If there is a reason for me to know a password, he shares the password.  Honestly, I don’t need his password for the online community he is a part of… and he doesn’t need my password to WB.

    We prefer to keep our e-mail accounts private, and only I have FB…Fiance doesn’t have a FB account. Now I have logged into other accounts to pay bills for him from time to time but I always forget his card number/log in/pswds immediately after I log out….LOL. I have a hard enough time remembering all of my passwords, so I definitely don’t want to have to remember his too.

    we both know all of eachothers passwords. Not to check up on eachother, we just do. I have more access to a computer than him, so i check his fb and will tell him what was on it, etc. I dont really see any need for privacy. Idk, were practically the same person though. lol.

    No we don’t share passwords, although I think he does know a few of mine to various Web sites and to my netbook (not email or facebook though.) However, I don’t know any of his. He is kind of a private guy like that, although I could care less if he knew any of mine. I don’t have anything to hide or anything. It used to bother me really bad that he was so private about stuff. I made the HUGE mistake of snooping once pretty early in the relationship and I did end up finding something on his myspace that I really didn’t like. However, we resolved it and are way past it now. It took me a long time to regain trust, but now that I have, I really don’t worry about it anymore. Even though it still slightly bothers me that he is so uptight about it, it is something that I have learned to live with in our relationship.

    He has one password that he uses for basically everything and I have one that I use for basically everything. We know each other’s but we don’t get onto each other’s accounts unless we need something and the other person always knows when we do so it’s not like a snooping thing. Our money is combined in one account and we both know the information to get into that, same with our phone.

    The only password I’ve given to him is my Amazon password so he can use my account when he orders because I have free 2-day shipping thanks to my Dad putting me on his Prime account.  Besides that we only share passwords for bill websites (cable, heat, etc) and nothing else.  It’s better that way – I trust him 100% but I have always been a bit of a snoop so I just don’t want his passwords because I’d be too tempted to read his Facebook or something.

    @JamaicaBride: Our set up is pretty much the same. FH doesn’t have FB & I had to set up his email because he doesn’t know how to do that stuff (he’s not internet savy). So I do know his email password, and he has requested me check it every once in a while. For the most part though, we stay out of each others emails & personal things. We do however, share all billing account passwords in case we need to do something for one another. Although, we’ll be joining our accounts after I change my name, so this is kinda a prep for that!

    I don’t think it’s necessary to have your SO’s passwords, and I think people can get themselves into trouble by snooping. My Brothers girlfriend is a perfectly good example of that. I can’t even email my brother something private without her reading it first.

    Heck no!  I think some things should be kept private.  BUT I will say, we do have each others passwords to get into our phones, which has access to email/facebook/twitter.  I think that gives me enough peace of mind.  For the first year or so we dated, I used to like to go thru his phone and of course never found anything.  But this did help me trust him a lot (I had major trust issues b/c of past relationships) and no I never go thru his phone.  Nor do I have an urge to go thru his email or facebook.  It feels good being able to trust someone 100%, and I never thought I’d be able to have that.  There’s nothing better than that 🙂

    I know his because he has asked me to log into his e-mail, his Netflix account, etc. He trusts that I won’t abuse it, and I don’t. He doesn’t have my passwords because there’s never been a need. We’re fine with it.

    He has my banking password, and for accounts/bills we share we use a standard password. We do not know each others email passwords, facebook, messengers, etc.
