Want to build trust in your romantic relationship? Share your password.
A new study by online security service Comparitech found that 28 percent of men and 17 percent of women trusted their partners more after sharing their social media passwords.
The survey included 1,000 people about how social media played into their relationships. They found that about 47 percent of respondents shared their passwords with their better halves.
"With so much of our lives online these days, from social media usage to video streaming and online banking, sharing a password means placing a lot of trust in another person," Skyler Acevedo, a Comparitech rep, told The Post.
"At the same time, it's important to keep in mind that a misused password can have long-lasting effects and result in more than just relationship issues."
But some people have taken their partners' online transparency for granted. More than half of participants said they've gone through their partner's messages without their partner's consent.
And, about 16 percent of them ended up catching their significant others cheating over social media, and 12 percent of couples have broken up because of an online indiscretion.
In May, The Post reported on "microcheating," behavior on social media that can be seen as infidelity or a path to it. Shady acts include liking a sexy Instagram photo of an acquaintance or sliding into a stranger's DMs.
"It just doesn't make you feel good," Lindsey Metselaar, founder of the "We Met at Acme" podcast, told The Post. "When you enter a relationship, you have to start thinking about the other person."
