SAN FRANCISCO — News of Internet security breaches at eBay, Target and other large companies appears to be having an effect on online habits.
A USA TODAY survey finds that almost a quarter of Americans have at least temporarily stopped buying online because of security concerns.
A full 24% of those surveyed said they had stopped buying anything online in recent weeks because they were concerned about the safety of information they might put online.
Most surprisingly, 56% said they had cut back on the number of Internet sites they used and were only going to large, well-known companies they were confident were safe. Full Story. USA TODAY
