UK consumers concerned over privacy<br />

Out all the things that can go wrong with while online, it is the fear of losing their personal data while online according to a report by the Ofcom Consumer Panel. They went on to say that although many internet users are quite switched on, even the most proficient users are fearful of losing their personal data on the internet.

There are many ways of keeping personal details at arms length while using certain sites, when filling in profiles the user does have to put down the right details or they can make them private. But when it comes to paying for items online, PayPal is a good bet as this will keep the user’s credit card and bank details private.

Another concern that has been raised is the continued rise in users of social networking sites, such as Bebo and Facebook, there have been calls for warning signs on these sites which tell younger users what to do if they feel that they are being contacted by someone who is not quite what they seem.
