Online Privacy And Security

How Men And Women Differ In Their Approach To Online Privacy And Security

Kevin Murnane | April 11, 2016

Pew Research estimates that 84% of American adults use the internet, a place where privacy and security are in short supply.  What do internet users want in terms of security and privacy? What do they do to protect their own privacy and security when they use the internet? Hide My Ass! (HMA) commissioned a nationwide survey to find out. The main results revealed a striking disconnect between what people want and what they do while a deeper look uncovered some intriguing differences between men and women.

The Digital Life Spectrum survey found that 63 percent of U.S. consumers have experienced online security issues, yet only 56 percent of those consumers made permanent behaviour changes afterward. While many people say they want to protect their online privacy, the trade-off between security and convenience makes it difficult for them to sacrifice things like their level of social presence.
That’s the serious bit.
