    We broke up 1 week ago and i forgot that she had the passwords to my Instagram, facebook, snap chat and e-mail. Today i couldn't log on to any of them, i texted her asking if it was her and she replied saying that it was her and she would only give it back if i get back with her. What shall i do?

    Tell her that's blackmail. She should know that the re-connection would be weak if it was just for passwords.

    I say wait it out for a week or so, see what she does.

    If the account is in your email you can go on "forgot password" and change it.

    Get back with her for a couple of weeks just so you can get your passwords back and then make a new email and change all your accounts to have that new email - and change the passwords. If she doesn’t give them back to you, then now you know not to give your passwords away in the future

    Do you have a set of security questions set up for your email? EG name of first pet and all that?
    Is your email an academic or work one? In which case contact systems admin / helpdesk and get your email password reset.
    If it's gmail, do you have a secondary email account linked to it? Or what other procedures are there for unlocking your email account?


    BTW, she could have gotten the passwords via shoulder surfing - very difficult to avoid in a close relationship.
    Or the OP may have been to open and trusting. I can't blame him for that.
