44% of women check their partner’s phones

A study of 2,000 Brits reveals us to be something of a suspicious nation. According to the study, many check their partner's phone for questionable texts, emails and internet searches as often as twice a week. The study also found women are most likely to snoop.

Ines van Gennip, Marketing Director for IT & Mobile, Samsung Electronics UK & Ireland, said: "Mobile phones are such a huge part of our lives now, consumers want to stay in touch with loved ones via text, phone and social media.

"Rather amusingly this research shows that suspicious partners seem to be using them quite regularly to check up on their other half on a regular basis.

"As we head towards the Valentine's season however, it's worth bearing in mind that you might discover something your partner is trying to keep hidden for all the right reasons.”

The survey found 44 per cent of women have admitted to checking their partners phone behind their back, compared to 36 per cent of men.

It also showed 39 per cent of people know their partner's email password.

Snooping often ends with bad results, though, as 60 per cent of those who didn’t trust their partner enough to leave their partners private belongings alone caught them cheating or talking to someone they shouldn't be chatting with.
