    Only to source the snapchat usernames of her better looking friends. Other than that no.

    Wouldn't be with someone suspicious in the first place, would have a lot of openness between us, and would simply ask to see it if I suspected owt

    That's not invading someone's privacy if they have their post privacy on "friends" or "public" for everyone to see, so there's nothing wrong with looking at their posts.
    Texts and photos, however, are invading their personal space.

    Only an idiot would use the same phone to cheat anyway, real men use burners that we discard like our women

    Oh my God that was such a douchey thing to say lol

    No need. She tells me always that she is talking to other guys and how they send sexual messages and pictures

    We don't really bother with "mine and yours"... we have two identical phones and just grab one.

    Yes, and it's not because I don't trust her. (The notion that she would ever willingly face the disappointment of being with someone other than me is ridiculous). Sometimes, when she's out the room or goes to the toilet at restaurants, I'm bored, and looking through her texts is a good antidote.

    I had a thing that happened where we were so comfortable with eachother, not suspicious at all, I'd answer his phone he'd answer mine I didn't mind if he looked at my texts if I got one or texted off my phone to people if his wasn't nearby and vice versa.

    I was using his phone one day because I had no internet on mine and a message came through without a number, my partner is notorious for not saving anybodies number so I clicked on the message to see if I could work out which one of our friends it was (we share the same friend circle) Unfortunately the last couple messages had something pretty horrible about me written on them.. it was to a guy not a girl and he got upset and said he was making it up to make this guy feel better about his recent breakup after he had flaunted our relationship.

    SO.. idk, since then we're not so sharing, not because either of us thinks the other one has anything to hide but because things can be misconstrued and it's not worth the hassle!

    That's kind of weird. Why not just have one phone then?

    Don't either of you talk to friends on whatsapp or anything like that?

    I can't really imagine being with a girl I didn't trust enough not to snoop on her phone.

    No. If I didn't trust them, I wouldn't be with them.

    Tell me about it. Nothing worse than being with a person who's always fearful/doubtful continuously. Where there's no trust,there's nothing. I would definitely not get into a relationship with someone I didn't trust and who I felt was too pushy/snoopy

    I've no idea what "whatsapp" is. Friends and customers call the land line and we try not to give the mobile numbers out. I don't want to be accessible 24/7.

    Wow. Fair enough.


    As of September 2015, WhatsApp had a user base of up to 900 million,[4] making it the most globally popular messaging application.[5]

    WhatsApp Inc., based in Mountain View, California, was acquired by Facebook Inc. on February 19, 2014, for approximately US$16 billion

    I'm fascinated by the number of people that have said that there's nothing wrong with it. I take ICT for a GCSE subject and coincidentally just today we've been learning about hacking, viruses etc. While it's not really hacking if you just know their password, I'm pretty sure it's illegal to use someone else's device without permission. I doubt anything serious would come of it for the offender unless you were causing serious damage / trouble for the other person, but it's not a great thing to do. It's an obvious breech of privacy. Moreover if you don't trust your partner to the extent where you feel the need to know everything they're doing then it's not a healthy relationship, regardless of how you feel.

    I'm not interested in nonsense like that. If someone wants to speak to me they can call me at home or knock on the front door.
