A new survey has suggested that Britain has become a 'nation of snoops' where one in five women spy on their partner's online accounts.
 If Men Peek, Women Spy: Online Stalking of Romantic Partners’ Profiles

During the survey by security software firm Norton, women admitted that they have accessed their partner's emails or messages on social networking services such as Facebook without their knowledge, whereas only one in 10 men admitted doing the same.

While almost 15 percent of British women revealed that some information that they had found in their partners' online profiles provoked arguments, only seven percent of men encountered the same situation.

The findings were one of several indications that people's ethical standards may slip online.

"Our research raises some serious questions around privacy and the boundaries people are willing to cross in their own online dealings," the Telegraph quoted Simon Ellson from Norton as saying.
