If you want to show your partner how much you love them this Valentine’s Day you don’t need to spend a fortune.
A study has found that more than half of lovers (56 per cent) believe sharing a mobile PIN, email password or social media login details is the best way to commit to someone. And more than a third of people admitted they have already been given to their partner’s accounts.
The study was commissioned by Samsung to announce the launch of its Galaxy A series range.
It was carried out by One Poll and surveyed 2,000 British adults during the last weekend of January.
All of the respondents were in relationships and the majority of the participants were female (51 per cent). Almost 40 per cent said they already know their partner’s email password and more than a quarter (26 per cent) admitted knowing their significant other’s Facebook login details.
A third said they knew the PIN code or pattern needed to access the other person’s phone, and 54 per cent would be suspicious if they weren’t given these details.
The study additionally found that four in ten adults in a relationship regularly sneak a look at their partner’s phone behind their back. And six in 10 of these people have caught their partner cheating. Although a third have also ruined a romantic surprise by looking through a phone or email account. It follows a separate study from the Gadget Show Live that one in five UK adults wish they could spend this Valentine’s Day with their dream gadget instead of their loved one.
A quarter of men said they wanted to spend Saturday locked away with their smartphone, games console, headphones or 4K TV, compared to 14 per cent of women.
And of the 3,000 UK adults surveyed, 42 per cent of men said they had bought their partner a gadget or tech gift for Valentine’s Day.
