Do you do it out of curiosity, lack of trust or to keep tabs on your partner?
WhatsApp messages always double up as secret warehouse of information.
It contains private, confidential information about your partner's past and present too.
Relationships are based on an element of trust, but what if suspicion creeps in?
A woman was killed recently after her partner got to know about a new relationship by reading her WhatsApp messages.
'In the days leading up to the murder, Paul went through Natalie's phone and even managed to obtain a WhatsApp profile picture of his rival, Dennis,' a report in the British newspaper Mirror read.
