SNOOPING BECOMES MORE COMMON – ESPECIALLY AMONG MEN
Three fifths of men in relationships in the UK claim to have snooped for ‘incriminating messages or activity’, compared to a third of women, according to recent research by mobilephonechecker.co.uk.
When asked to reveal if they had ever looked through a current or ex-partner’s mobile phone without their knowledge, 62 per cent of the men taking part and just 34 per cent of female respondents admitted that they had done so.
When asked for the motivations behind wanting to check up on their partner, the majority (89 per cent) admitted they had done so to see if their partner had been talking to anyone else in a romantic or sexual context, indicating signs of infidelity.
Furthermore, 52 per cent of those asked admitted that they knew the passcode or password needed to access their partner’s phone in order to do this.
