    Because text message conversations are nobody’s business outside of those involved. Do you have kids? I do. I have a 9 year old and a 4 year old. I certainly would not want them having access to my messages.

    Because of the concept of privacy, that communications between others and myself are for the addressees only.By the same token, would you read other people’s mail, rifle through a woman’s handbag,a man’s coat pockets, someone else’s desk ?
    By not reading communications not intended for yourself you are avoiding the chance of damaging yourself or others,either by,making use of said information or broadcasting it. Also being known as a person who will do such a thing, will do you no good socially or in business ,as an untrustworthy person is just that.

    Do not have kids. Do not like kids. Phone calls are much better because of peeps worrying about what is being typed back and fourth. Easier to talk on the phone than to type back and fourth.

    Well, not everyone comfortable with that. And that doesn’t mean they’be done something “bad” or has some kind of “dark secret”. That’s too judgemental. It’s all depends on our own preferences, so called privacy ?

    Okay, we know where you personally stand on text messages, privacy, and phone calls. Do you actually have anything of value to add to this conversation?

    However, it can be a complicated beast at times, especially if family members are using the same Apple ID on different devices.
    And how many times has it been said to not share ID's?

    But yes, it is a privacy issue. I wouldn't want anyone seeing my messages, mainly because of the nature of my job.
