Six out of ten Norwegians worry about someone in their family in connection with internet security, according to a survey by Microsoft Norway.
The survey shows that people are mostly worried about their children, followed by concern for their own safety.
Among the elderly, fear of financial fraud is the most common concern. Families with children are most worried about unwanted contact from strangers via the internet.
“If you look at the media coverage around online dangers, you probably recognize these two concerns. We are constantly reading about fraud attempts and unwanted contact via the internet, and it is important that these topics are kept “warm” as the best way to prevent more people being hit is through knowledge,” says national security director Ole Tom Seierstad at Microsoft Norway.
The survey also shows that only 5 per cent are afraid to publish private photos and videos of their own family members and children, even though online etiquette is high on the priority list among parents.
