Online security: Users have over-confidence in the way they protect their personal data.
Internet attacks have become more and more, and one would have expected that internet users have become more cautious and devised a plan to protect them from an attempt to breach their personal data.
Malwarebytes' research, however, shows how the percentage of users who have actually taken care of their Internet security is disappointing. Research shows that users have more confidence in security settings they have done what they should.
To conduct the survey, 4,000 people were asked and as it turned out most do not trust companies and are worried about the security of their personal data, have not taken the necessary measures to protect them. Users prefer to make easy-to-use security practices rather than looking for ways that they want more "trouble" on their part but will definitely enhance their online security.
It is also noteworthy that users in percentage ranges from 92% to 96% depending on their age group, they are skeptical of the practices they use social media to protect their personal data, although they themselves are not looking for better ones. The results of the survey seem to be the respondents have more confidence in search engines compared to social media.
