Although cyber security issues are constantly in the news, 21 percent of online adults have had an email or social media account hijacked at some point, and 11 percent have had vital information like Social Security numbers or financial data stolen. A Pew Internet study showed Web users are concerned about the amount of personal information about them that is available online. As a result, some 86 percent of Web users have instituted procedures to avoid surveillance by other people or organizations when they’re online. The most common way users try to avoid monitoring is by clearing cookies and their browser history (62 percent) and by disabling cookies (41 percent).
