Privacy By Design For Everyone

Digital Privacy and Security Survey 2021

We're excited to release our analysis of our first Digital Privacy and Security Survey. The survey and analysis were conducted by Maya Ninova between October and December 2021. With this survey, we sought to provide insights about people’s attitudes towards digital privacy and security, identify their awareness of protection and protective behavior, and explore internet users' knowledge and concerns related to digital privacy and security.

A total of 1146 individuals aged 18 years and over from different parts of the world responded the online survey, which contained 34 questions, available in Spanish and English. This online survey is based on non-random sampling and therefore we cannot draw conclusions for the entire population nor make predictions, but we hope that it serves as a useful foundation for future research.

This survey was funded by Internews' BASICS program. The full survey is available here.
