Should Partners Be Privy to Passwords? [Infographic]
Does your partner know your social media passwords? Should they?
That's part of the focus of this new report from comparitech - looking at the issue of social media, and digital privacy more broadly, comparitech surveyed more than a thousand people to get their thoughts on a range of digital privacy questions.
Among the key findings:
- Nearly a third of couples have argued over a social media post, and 16% have caught their partner cheating on social media
- 17% of men and 18% of women exchange passwords because they trust their partner won't use their accounts without their permission - yet over half of people said they read their partner’s texts or DMs without their knowledge
- 12% have ended their relationship because of a social media post - 38% of people will change their social media passwords post-breakup or divorce
There are some interesting notes and considerations, which definitely raise some key questions. You can read comparitech's full report here, or check out a summary of the key points in the infographic below.
