Software companies used to have one goal: to develop efficient applications that users liked. When people switched from desktop to SaaS / web applications, companies were forced to focus on security to avoid being hacked. Now they will have a new mission: to ensure the privacy of their users. At any costs.
In October 2015 me and my partner-in-dev Emad Heydari Beni ran a small survey on how our blog readers, friends and relatives felt about privacy and security on the Internet. The survey was closed November the 11th and we started analyzing the data we had gathered. The short version? We were actually surprised at some of the answers!
One month ago, me and my friend decided to run a survey about your perception of privacy and security on the Internet.
We’ve gathered enough (anonymous) data, so today we decided to close the survey.
I would like to personally thank all of you who took the time to respond. As promised, we will analyze and publish your responses and our conclusions on them in a forthcoming blog post.
Once again: thank you all for your help!
Microsoft, Facebook, Twitter... These three incredible tech giants alone brought us, year after year, what contributes in defining today's IT landscape. All share one common weak spot though: their defaults on privacy.
