"How do we navigate information, privacy and security issues online? Digital Savvy Citizens presents new research data which looks at where we find information on breaking news stories and local services; how we use public wifi; and how we manage privacy and security settings on our phones. The data, compiled for the Trust by Ipsos MORI, highlights key differences in behaviour by age, gender and socio-economic group, as well as differences between England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and Ireland."
There were indeed interesting variations by age group, by socio-economic group, and by home nation.
