A Pew Internet and American Life survey shows how teens 12 to 17 years old think about privacy when using mobile apps. While some are nonchalant ..., more than half avoid some apps due to privacy concerns.
Though socio-economics are a factor, that’s not the predominant issues, probably because many teens favor free apps. “Eight in ten (79%) teen mobile device owners living in households earning $50,000 or more per year download apps, compared with 60% of those living in households earning less than $50,000 per year.
70 percent of teens have sought privacy advice from an adult or outside source. Of those “advice-seekers” who have mobile devices, 50 percent turned off location tracking features, as compared to 37 percent of teens who did not seek advice on privacy.
