iPhone App iTrust Catches Snoopers In the Act

Do You Trust Your Mate to Be Alone Around Your Gadgets?

I saw this crazy iPhone app yesterday called iTrust that records your mates attempts to break into your texts and emails while you're away. The app developers also give an interesting fact: 67 percent of British women say they regularly snoop around in their boyfriend's phone. It got me wondering how many people would actually buy this app in fear that their significant others are spying on them? We've already talked about how tech makes it easier to get caught cheating these days, but does tech also make it easier to get caught snooping? For example, if a text message comes in on your iPhone, and your spying mate reads it, there's no way to mark it as read again. Additionally, if you've ever found that you're logged into your email or Facebook, but know you signed out after your last session, does that pique your interest and make you suspicious that someone found their way into your accounts?

Thankfully I'm not worried about my boyfriend snooping around in my digital life, but what about you — do you trust your mate to be alone around your gadgets?

An ex-boyfriend broke into my email and snooped around on my computer.... That really surprised me and made me very paranoid. I'm still hesitant to let other people use my stuff. As for him, yeah, he had trust issues, and I don't think that's changed. My husband would never do that, and I am so glad I can trust him even though I don't have anything to hide.

The only reason I don't trust people with my gadgets is because I don't want anyone breaking my stuff, and really, I don't like people touching my things unless I've given permission. I have nothing to hide, but seriously, it's MY stuff. Why do YOU need it?

I have nothing to hide so I don't really care about him snooping around. However..I still don't trust my husband around my gadgets because he is kind of careless and would probably break them...haha :) I actually make him wash his hands before he handles my white macbook!

Thanks God I do not have any problem about this. Cos the people I had relationship with were not that neurotic. Even though I still think that with this kind of app it is easy to know who you are dealing with.

I usually trust my boyfriend with my tech. There was on instance where he locked himself in our bedroom with my iPhone a few minutes after he had tried to see something on the phone I didn't want to share but he said he didn't look so I trust him :]
