Does your hubby or SO know your online passwords? Does anyone?

Passwords - knowing others passwords

I don't know my husbands and he doesn't know mine. We share one email account and everything else is seperate because we go to different sites and have different online interests. He's into the sports and news sites and I'm into the cooking or crafts sites. If he asked me I would tell him, it's no big deal to me. I'm not big on privacy or anything like that concerning my online stuff. If he wants to know how to sew a duvet..hey, he's more then welcome to the password to the site that tells you how LOL. The only person that knows my passwords is my cousin, because she is always helping me do technical stuff that I can't do or making up pretty pages for me on my multiply. Thanks for that cuzzy:)

my husband knows one of my email ids password and rest of the emails he dont know i just keep telling him if i open one but he dont know the password of that, if he asks me i can tell him and there is nothing to hide from him. i dont know his ids password and i dont require it and if i ask him he tells and hence nothing private in between us. apart from us we dont have any need to share our passwords among anyone i feel.

My soon to be ex husband never used the computer so he never needed to have my passwords. I would never have given them to him anyway. The things I say and do on the internet are my business.

My husband and I knew each other accounts' password. Although he doesn't spend too much time infront of the computer than me. He will just check his bank account and his stocks which I also do. With me, he only check my friendster account to see those people viewing my account. If he sees some guys he will ask jokingly "what is this mrs hunter?" to me..which is funny...hehe. We both have access in our accounts. He was the one always say that there's nothing to hide so everything is open for both of us.

no, none from my household really knows my password or even my user name. we have a separate account in the computer . we logged on on a separate username so no one really knows my password besides that is too personal to tell to anyone even my husband i don't know i am very private person maybe

No, no one knows my passwords, not even my husband. I wouldn't mind too much if he wanted to look at a site that I was on that is password protected, but I'd be right there next to him in fear that he might accidentally delete my account or something! LOL That is one of the reasons why he has his own account here, so that he can look at mylot if he so desires without having to worry about using mine.

My husband and I met online. He is from Florida and i'm from Philippines. He never knows my password and i don't know his password either. He did not asked me about it, so i did not dared to give it to him. But if he will ask me, i'll surely give it to him

My husband knows a few of my passwords. I also know a couple of his. Neither one of us use them though. I also know his cell phone passwords but I don't really care because I rarely ever even touch his cell phone. It is not a big deal to me for him to know my passwords. I don't have anything to hide.

My husband and I do not share any accounts (except a banking account). I can't say that I know his or he knows mine but each of us do have easy access to each other's passwords. Other than him, no one knows or has access to my passwords. We do have similar interests but I think we just don't because before we met, we each had the majority of our respective accounts already open so... Heck, it took us more than a year to get a joint banking account!

He knows my password for basically everything and I have access to all his personals also. As long as you're not hiding anything, I don't see why it wouldn't be a shared item. Plus it's nice to be able to check on emails for eachother when one isn't near a computer. You're just adding to the advantages of the relationship.

With my hubby and myself, I do know most of his and if I dont know it all I have to do is ask him and he will give it to me. The same is true for him. If he wants to come on here and do discussions then he can but he has his own account here but never comes here though. Plus it is the same for us as you. We or I dont feel the need to hide anything or have secrets and stuff.

I don't share my passwords with anyone, but if I was marry and I would shared my password with my wife, anyway I wouldn't come to flirt or look for online romance if was marry so I would not worry about her looking at my email and web sites that I have registered, I wouldn't ask to my wife to give me passwords and tell me what she is dong online, I would trust in her, anyway I think if I ever get marry and she want to go away I wouldn't stop her even if it hurt so much, I think it is not good to force someone to stay if they don't want to, actually I manage some password of friends that I have help with technical things, I never sign in to check out their emails or anything, I remember I did to check the email of a ex girlfriend I had a long time ago, she was getting emails from one of her workmates, it was not nice to read, and I think I never should have to check it out, anyway she told me that she was dating someone else and we broke up.

im sorry,i can not reveal my password to anybody because there are some sensitive things i do on the net like all my onlione transaction ,and i think that my password should be kept secret.any attempt to leave it out to another person may lead to the password being known by another person due to negligence i think any password that involves transaction should be kept secretly

for the most part i know his and he knows somewhat of mine. most of the time he used the same password, but i have a rotaion of passwords i can use and he never asks for them. if he wanted then i'll let him know. he even knows my pin numbers. he told me his once, but i can't remember. we trust each other and for things like email and myspace, i've gone into his account to organize his email (because seriously 3105 unread messages is a little much) we don't hide anything from each other.

My fiance and I share passwords. We have three sets of passwords to all the sites we do, and they are all in common. Ofcourse, we don't have the same password for the same site, well except for one, but that's beside the point. I don't see any problem with sharing passwords because we share a lot more then just that.

we have our computers on a network, so if my husband wanted to see any of my spreadsheets he has access to them. As far as our passwords, yes, I know my husband's but he is not interested in what I do on the computer. I rather he did not go on my computer, because he always changing and deleting things, then I have a problem when I get on. I gave him my password to my yahoo account once, I do not know what he did, but I had to create another password in order to get in.

I don't share passwords - or expect them to be shared - for anything that has personal or sensitive information. If anyone offers me their password, I get that feeling one gets if someone offers the loan of their pyjamas. It's kind of embarrasing. I generally insist that they either change it first and then change it back after I have done what is necessary or I will do my best to forget it. Unfortunately, after 20 years in IT Support, there are some passwords which are so hilarious, I shall never forget them! I have begun to collect my own passwords, together with the site details, however, and store them in a secure environment so that when the Alzheimer's really takes hold (I really hope I'm joking here!) or I get knocked down by a bus, it will be easier for those of my nearest and dearest who may need the information to sort out the tangle of my affairs, to sound the 'Last Post' on MyLot (and other sites) and to claim all the money that is out there somewhere (if I could only remember where). Frankly, I am astounded ... not at your mutual marital trust and lack of curiosity, which is endearing and far from normal (if we are to believe many discussions here), but at the fact that one needs a password in order to know how to sew a duvet! (That is a 'comforter', by the way, in case anyone reading this is American, or a 'doona' if you are Australian.)
