Before you share your password with your partner, here’s what the (very cautious) experts say
March 13, 2020
Passwords can be shared with partners for a variety of reasons... But think about what could happen after a break-up.
Amy Hasinoff, a communications professor at the University of Colorado Denver, describes this scenario to Inverse as “the most significant risk of sharing a password with someone.”
Regardless of whether or not a breakup happens, if a relationship is abusive (or becomes abusive) and a threatening partner has access to passwords, they “can wreak a lot of havoc on someone’s life,” Hasinoff says.
