Do you open your Gf or Bf's facebook account?

Do you think is necessary to know your gf/bf's password to their personal account especially with their facebook account? Do you open their account every now and then? What do you do with their facebook account? I was thinking if it's right to open their account every now and then even without them knowing. What are your thoughts about this?

I had this issue before and I think I posted a similar topic on this in the past. I am not in favor of sharing passwords whether emails or social media accounts. These accounts are purely private and personal and privacy with our partners should be respected. Even spouses should maintain a certain level of privacy, like wallets, bags, pockets, it should not be opened without the other's permission.

I was the one who set up my BF's facebook hence I know everything.....but after setting it up, I didn't open it anymore, I am more interested in my own activity than his, i leave him alone of what he do online as I expect him to do the same, I don't want him interfering in my online activities.

Well, sometimes I check on his facebook account just to check if there are any important messages. I also ask him to check mine if there are any important news in my account. But we dont open it because we're spying on each other, we're too old for that now.

No. I don't want to. It's better not to know because the things I don't know wont hurt me. And it's a bit of privacy for him. I open my ex boyfriend's email before and I don't really like what I discovered so from that time I leave it up to them.

I have no Boy friend but I have partner and no choice to open his account because he never say me his password and I not try to find out. I think password should not share with anyone. Even they are our own family members.

Okay then. Don't you ever doubt that he doesn't want to give you his password?

I recently open his Facebook because he told me to do so. He voluntarily gave his Facebook's password but personally it's a matter of trust. Privacy.

Any healthy relationship is based in trust and so you shouldn't want or need your partner's facebook password because you should be secure enough in your relationship to trust that they aren't doing anything on facebook that violates your trust and your relationship.

I don't think it's necessary... But my girlfriend does have pass words to everything I own & vise versa... Even with that, we don't look into each other's accounts without asking first... For us, it's not about having or keeping a secret but it's about respecting each other enough & having enough trust in each other...

I don't have any girl friend. Even if I would have girl friend I would have not opened her account because I would trust her. I think there should not be any harm to boy boy friend to have her lot of friends. Having friends to girlfriend doesn't make any harm if you trust her and have faith on her.

I don't think it is necessary. I wouldn't mind knowing and not knowing about it. My boyfriend's weird. He told me his password so I can access his account on facebook. When there's some girl who he thinks liked him as more than friends he immediately tells me about it and sometimes if I don't take him seriously, wants me to check his account to be sure. Sometimes I want to spy on him for fun and so I can know more about him. He won't mind. We have nothing to hide from each other. We don't demand to know each other's accounts, we just do it willingly. Now I have forgotten his password because it has been a long time since I looked at his account. I did that when he was missing and couldn't be contacted to I chatted with his friends on facebook and asked where he is.

opening your gf or bf fb acc. will let you know that how much he or she is serious to you,,,,,,,by opening their message box and see what they talk with their opposite,,,specially their best friend......

I've opened my finance's account and found a lot of stuff in it when we first got together the more i found the more i wanted to keep looking in it. It's bad when a relationship has to go in that direction but I think when you are in a relationship that you shouldnt hide anything from your partner i think it is fair for both people in a relationship to have the others password

I know my husband's log in details, but I don't open his account. Simply because I don't like the idea of him being in my account. I don't have anything to hide, but I don't like the thought of someone else - even my husband - looking at stuff without me being there (if I'm in the same room, I don't mind). I've always been private like that, I guess. But anyway, since I wouldn't like it if he checked my stuff, I don't check his stuff either...

Sharing things together is definitely an important part of a relationship,but you are also entitled to some privacy in your life..your Facebook account or email account should remain private.It's like the social media equivalent of going through a Woman's handbag or Her Diary to give that access,IMO..

Me and my husband knows each others password in facebook even when we are still just boyfriend and girlfriend. We don't have anything to hide so it is okay for us. I open his account if there is a fb game that I am hooked with since I use his account to send me gifts to the said game hehe. I also use his account to get additional freebies and for additional chance of winning in contests (I use my account initially).

it depends upon the situation. For me, it's not right to open the fb account of your bf/gf because it's their privacy.. But for the married person like me it is necessary that both husband and wife must know the password in any account it only show's that there is no a secret behind that account...and it show's you really love and trust your partner...
