Hacking Now Every American’s Worst Nightmare

Hacking

What crimes do Americans worry about the most? After a spate of data breaches among major US retailers, people have become most concerned about the security of their credit card details. According to a Gallup poll, 69 percent of respondents stated that they frequently or occasionally worry about having credit information stolen by hackers. Just 31 percent said they worry about getting mugged while 18 percent frequently or occasionally worry about getting murdered. 

Having a computer/smartphone hacked with information stolen also ranks highly on the list of fears with 62 percent worrying about this scenario frequently or occasionally. Indeed the nightmare of credit card data theft is not an unfounded fear – over a quarter of all Americans have experienced it.
