      Oracle@ that’s sweet. The problems is that passwords expire. Keys/locks are much harder to change.

      this is madness. Go the opposite route. We have a shared bank account for shared payments but separate social media.

      Wait, you think your personal communications are less important than the bank account (which in the US is shared anyways by law)?

      Out of curiosity, do you also read each other’s mail? (Paper mail)

      Well we're not married so that's why we have our own bank accounts. And yeah we read each other's paper mail, all that we get in the mail is bills and 401k info, I don't care if she sees that. It's not that I don't want her to see my bank account, I just don't want her to screw anything up on any of those accounts.

    I don’t even know my own passwords. Strong passwords + password manager.

      Then, does he/she have access to the master password? Don’t take my question too literally

      No she doesn’t. She has passwords in her own account for certain shared services, and is an authorized user on joint accounts.

    We have a shared email and password for things like Netflix. Otherwise we don't know each others. Should something happen they can recover my LastPass account.

      Good that you bring up digital legacy. It’s not what I had in mind when I created this poll, but I am actually quite interested in that topic lately.

    They have my basic password, but not the banking ones or personal email one.

    About 10 years ago I got burned by this after a breakup. It was destructive and hurtful. Since then I’ve made it my policy that no one, regardless of relationship or status, gets my passwords. I’ve gotten a few eyebrows raised when I’ve had to unlock a device and wouldn’t share it, but have never been burned since. It has nothing to do with with my level of trust, it’s just my personal policy. I can’t recommend this way of operating enough. Just got out of a long term relationship and I felt so much better never feeling like I had to lock anything down, because I know they never had access.

    Shared the same password manager, made things easy. Separated them out when separating.

    Long-term married here. Full access to each other’s passwords and there’s a place (unfindable by others) where we also have our master 1Password keys in case of death.
