Nearly half Dutch kids fail to protect privacy online

Tuesday 7 February 2017 | 15:56 CET | News
Nearly half of Dutch young people don't know how to protect their privacy well online, according to study from the hosting provider Bit for Safer Internet Day. While most kids know their way around technology, internet security is not a big priority for many. For example, two-thirds open emails from people they don't know and four in ten open files from unknown senders. Ninety percent think they can recognise a malevolent email, but ten percent admitted they had been a victim of cybercrime, and 52 percent said they didn't know if they'd been a victim.
