If you’ve ever let paranoia get the best of you and snooped on a partner, you’re not alone. From hacking a locked phone to peeking in a forbidden closet, these women got way more than their wandering eyes bargained for. Here are some confessions that might leave you trying to come up with a harder passcode for your phone.
1. “So my boyfriend at the time got a new iPhone and we hooked it up to my Macbook to set it up. In the process, we unknowingly had all of his pictures automatically syncing to my laptop when they were on the same Wi-Fi. One day, I opened my laptop to about 25 pictures of different naked girls. I didn’t tell him and just waited to see what else would end up coming! Let’s just say our relationship ended shortly after.” —Kylee, 24
2. “My S.O. in undergrad had a crazily complicated swipe lock pattern on his phone. I would always try to crack it when he was in the shower, not expecting to find anything, but just to see if I could get in. He was really protective of his phone and would never let me hold it. So one day, I finally got in and found on Facebook messenger the same message sent to, like, seven girls, saying, ‘Hey it’s been a while, I miss seeing you around.’ The worst part is that most of them replied something like ‘We’ve met once, or ‘We’ve never even talked.’ I confronted him as soon as he got out of the shower, and he turned the blame to me for snooping! He never explained why he was thirstily trying to talk to random girls so I broke up with him shortly after.” —Gin, 24
