2015 Intel Security Survey: 30% Sent Personal Photos to Others Via Mobile Devices & 50% Don’t Delete Personal Photos or Videos Sent to Others

Wed February 11, 2015

2015 Intel Security Survey/Study: infographic

2015 Intel Security Survey/Study: infographic

Last year’s Love, Relationships & Technology survey found Canadians also have potential privacy issues when it comes to their relationships. 47% of Canadians send or receive intimate content including videos, photos, emails and messages. 40% of Canadians share their passwords with their significant others and 35% of Canadian adults who password-protect their device use the same passcode across multiple devices. More Canadian findings from last year’s survey are available here:

With Valentine’s Day nearly upon us, we wanted to share some information from a recent Intel Security survey on how people interact with their significant others and how they protect their personal information.

  • The online survey, commissioned by Intel Security, was conducted by MSI International between January 29 and February 3, 2015.
  • The survey polled 2,507 adults ages 18-54 who are online and use Internet-connected devices in North America (US), Asia Pacific (Australia, Singapore), and Latin America (Brazil, Mexico).

A recent study from Intel Security found that well over ½ of us share our passwords with our significant others (from Facebook to our email to our mobile device) and about 30% of us also share our personal photos with others. And 50% of us don’t take care to delete any personal photos or videos we send to others.

So whether you are happily in love or searching for The One, here are a few things you need to watch out for this Valentine’s Day so you don’t get struck by a malicious “love” bug.

  • Valentine’s Day E-cards
    You check your email and see that you have a Valentine’s Day e-card. You open it, thinking it’s from a friend or relative, but it’s actually from a cybercriminal and now you have a nice little V-Day gift—malware.
  • Personal Photos
    It’s Valentine’s Day so it might be tempting to send your significant other a personal picture of yourself, but this could come back to haunt you in the future. Once the other person has the photo, it belongs to them, even after the relationship is over.
  • Too Good to Be True Deals
    E-commerce sites love Valentine’s Day because they can sell all sorts of romantic gifts like flowers, jewelry, and chocolates. Cybercriminals know this and create fake sites, offering great deals, intended to capture your personal and financial information.
  • Fake Dating Profiles
    Just like you shouldn’t “friend” someone on social media that you don’t know in real life, you must be careful when communicating with people on dating sites. Remember, you don’t know who is who on the Internet.

Don’t Get Bit By the Love Bug
