About this survey This survey by the Pew Research Center’s Internet Project was underwritten by Carnegie Mellon University.
The findings in this report are based on data from telephone interviews conducted by Princeton Survey Research Associates International from July 11-14, among a sample of 1,002 adults ages 18 and older.
Some 68% of internet users believe current laws are not good enough in protecting people’s privacy online and 24% believe current laws provide reasonable protections.
Telephone interviews were conducted in English by landline and cell phone.For results based on the total sample, one can say with 95% confidence that the error attributable to sampling is plus or minus 3.4 percentage points and for the results from 792 internet and smartphone users in the sample, the margin of error is 3.8 percentage points.Still, 59% of internet users do not believe it is possible to be completely anonymous online, while 37% of them believe it is possible.A section of the survey looking at various security-related issues finds that notable numbers of internet users say they have experienced problems because others stole their personal information or otherwise took advantage of their visibility online—including hijacked email and social media accounts, stolen information such as Social Security numbers or credit card information, stalking or harassment, loss of reputation, or victimization by scammers.Users report that a wide range of their personal information is available online, but feel strongly about controlling who has access to certain kinds of behavioral data and communications content.
Users know that there is a considerable amount of personal information about them available online.
The content of email messages and the people with whom one communicates via email are considerably more sensitive pieces of information when compared with other online activities and associated data trails.
Chinese girls are considered to have some special characteristics that western women do not have, so more and more foreigners hope to marry a Chinese woman.
