Elderly show greater online smartness than youngsters
A survey of 4,000 adults in the United States and United Kingdom has shown that 18-34 year olds are careless about online account security. Two-thirds in the age group use bad passwords and 35% admitted that at least one of their accounts was hacked in the past year.
On the other hand, those in the age group 51-69 years and considered tech-unaware, are more protective about online accounts. They never use passwords such as 1234 or birthdays. 80% in this group said their accounts were never hacked. Technology company Gigya released the report.
