Market Snapshot analyzes consumer research on attitudes on data sharing and personal experiences with COVID-19
DALLAS, Oct. 13, 2020reports among heads of US broadband households ages 18-24, 90% are willing to share smartphone data if privacy protections are offered. In contrast, just over 63% of those age 65+ are willing to share data.
Higher income households and those with higher levels of education are also more likely than lower income households and those with lower educational attainment to share their data.
