Exploring Consumer Attitudes About Privacy

A new study, “Privacy Front and Center,” from Consumer Reports’ Digital Lab with support from Omidyar Network, found that American consumers are increasingly concerned about privacy and data security when purchasing new products and services, which may be a competitive advantage to companies that raise the bar for privacy.

A majority of smart product owners (62%) worry about potential loss of privacy when buying them for their home or family, according to CR’s February 2020 nationally representative survey. The study found that the privacy and security conscious consumer class seems to include more men and people of color.
