The survey was performed as a means of highlighting the danger of clicking on suspicious links.
‘In our hyper-connected world, it’s important for consumers to think before they click to be sure that they are landing on safe digital content and protecting themselves from cybersecurity threats that may be used to infect their devices or steal their identity,’ Gary Davis, chief consumer security evangelist at McAfee, said on Tuesday.
‘So whether you’re looking up what Ruby did on the latest ‘Orange is the New Black’ episode, or what Kristin Cavallari wore the latest awards show, make sure you’re searching the internet safely.’
