More than nine out of ten U.S. adults have been guilty of at least one risky data security behavior in the past year. According to a new creditcards-dot-com report, the most common data security mistake is re-using online passwords, which could contribute to identity theft.
Other common risky behaviors include using a public Wi-Fi network, saving passwords and payment info, carrying a Social Security card in a purse or wallet and throwing out mail with personal data without shredding it.
Even though Americans continue with this risky behavior, most say they’re more concerned about identity theft than home burglaries. See the complete survey, HERE .
