NEW STUDY: State of Online Privacy in the US 2018


Released on the 11th of October, a study conducted by the cybersecurity experts at reveals that while concerns surrounding cybersecurity have reached an all-time high as once-trusted names like Facebook have breaches, consumers are doing little to nothing to ensure information stored and shared online is more secure.

The study, which surveyed 1,000 Americans, found that about half of consumers (46%) have done nothing to adjust their privacy settings on social media, and less than half have checked to see if their data has been compromised over the past 12 months — even after Cambridge Analytica. Whaaatttt?

On that note, 62% surveyed internet users believe it’s illegal for internet service providers (ISPs) like AT&T, Verizon, Comcast, to collect & sell their personal data without their consent.
