Tiscali says users’ data is at risk


by David Allen

Some alarming results have turned from a survey conducted by the internet service provider Tiscali.

It seems that despite all of the warnings and stories of real people who have fallen foul of ID theft or had their bank accounts cleared, internet users are still being complacent with their personal details.

The information that users publish online is of the greatest concern, and the Tiscali survey asked over 2500 people about the sort of details that they publish on the Internet.

The results were as follows, 68% uploaded photos, 49% date of birth, 40% email address and 20% a resume.

It seems that even social networking is becoming lax too as 30% of users have their profile open to the public, while 13% do not know the difference between public and private profiles.

Worst of all are the 5% of user that publish their home addresses and the 21% per cent that tell the world when they are going on holiday.
