For Those Who Think They're Password Protected.

By Nicole Ferraro.

In an online survey, 42 percent of Internet users admitted to logging 
into other people's email and social networking accounts without their 
knowledge. The poll doesn't ask if passwords were found, granted, or 
stolen -- which would make for further interesting results. The write-up 
summarizing the results defines the respondents as part of an "educated 
tech-readership" and questions the ethics of logging onto someone else's 
account, and whether those differ depending on the person and relationship.
