Teens worried about internet privacy
A survey shows that teens are probably more worried about internet privacy than their parents.
According to the 2012 Teens and Privacy Management Survey carried out by Pew Internet many teen apps users have taken steps to uninstall or avoid apps over concern about their privacy.
Teen girls are more likely to delete location information as a majority of them have disabled location tracking features on cell phones and in apps because they are worried about others' access to that information.
Pew said that the survey was conducted among US teens ages 12-17.
More than half of all teens have downloaded apps to their mobile phone or tablet computer and 51 per cent of teen apps users have avoided certain apps due to privacy concerns.
Over a quarter have uninstalled an app because they learned it was collecting personal information that they didn't wish to share.
More than 46 percent have turned off location tracking features on their mobile phone or in an app because they were worried about the privacy of their information.
