Internet privacy: Personal information
In this question you can see how around 66 people do not know how. Normally, when a person creates a social network, he is not aware of the rights he has, for example, if a person spreads a photo of another person to evidence, that would be a crime, since he is threatening the honorand the right to privacy of that person, among others.
One of the internet dangers is that the dissemination of content is so assumed through social networks, that the limits of when something is legal or when an illegality is being committed. In this survey question we wanted to detect which users complete the additional information offered by the different applications that we are analyzing in our research work. Questions like, “What sport do you do?"Or" What are your hobbies?".
60 people from the respondents have indicated that they do not meet the information of these questions while 3 people do complete the information required optionally in these applications in these applications. On the other hand, 37 people answer that "partially", wanting to refer to what depends on what question or what application.
It is important to remember that users have the option to choose who can see this information, either your friends, either all the users of the application that is being used or that only you as owner of your profile. On some occasion, the websites to verify that you are not a bot asks you.
In this case, approximately 55 people have responded that they have made that step before accessing the social network;25 people indicate that they do not (possibly unk. Any application or website that your access leads to introducing a user and password when entering, they also have an option (once inside) to close session and that is not kept executed in the background.
It is a quite recommended option, since while that network is kept open, even in the background, it can be collecting personal data from its users in addition to generating additional consumption of your data rate. 77 people of the respondents indicate that they do not close session once they end their activity within the app or website, while 23 people have answered that they do perform that action.
The “Friends near” section is an exclusive function for users of Facebook applications that use the location of your device to inform your friends where you are at all times and how far from them. It also notifies you every time a friend is close to you according to the location that the application collects. 35 people indicate that they do know this part of the app, 37 did not know that there was even Facebook access to your location to inform other users, and finally, 28 people recognize not knowing how that section works, but they do confirm having heardher.
This question appears to be like one previously formulated, but instead, we wanted. It is important to close session to avoid the collection of your data, but also deleting cookies is quite relevant, since you delete from the device database all that valuable information that should not reach the hands of these applications.
92 people of the respondents indicate that both operations and 8 people do not manage if they do. Compared to the previous question “If you close session in the applications once you end the activity within it” and their respective answers, we verify that of the 32 people who did closed session only 8 erase the cookies of the applications.
In the case of this issue we wanted to know the information that respondents have from the situation of their data, although they erase their accounts. We see that 81% are aware that the data is not eliminated, and only 3% believe that these data will disappear completely, this being the percentage of misinformation. While 16% are not sure where their data will stop in this situation.
The aforementioned case of sexual video is the aforementioned of the case of Eibar players when the real cases were exposed in which privacy was affected and WhatsApp did nothing about it to prevent the dissemination of that video. 60 people have answered that they did not know that WhatsApp did not act when an illegality was committed in their application, in front of 40 people who claimed that they knew WhatsApp the behavior of this situation in this situation.
Cookies are the first thing we accept when entering a web page, but are people totally informed of what they accept? With the statistics collected we see that 50% of the people know what the functions of cookies are, while the other 50% were not aware of their function or where their data were.
Of the 100 people surveyed, 44 people have voted that they do not take any precaution to protect their privacy, on the contrary, only 5 of them have voted that yes. Other people have answered with their attempts to protect privacy in these social networks, such as trying to eliminate their location, give minimal information and not even give personal information. Some have written that it depends on the application and attempt to navigate in an unknown mode, put their private accounts and use different passwords in the different networks.
This makes us think that a large major. Of the 100 people surveyed to 90 of them have never removed any content in this social network, 6 has no instagram or barely uses it, 1 for bullying behavior, 1 for photos with ex -partners, 1 per copyright and 1 per story of FreeNipples.
This is one of the most important questions where we seek to know if the survey has really served to help people to know more about their privacy. In this case we see that most people have changed their perception or at least expanded their information, being a total of 80% of people who have increased their knowledge on this issue.
