MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — It’s pretty impossible to avoid the internet. And now, a new survey shows many people think it’s impossible to protect your privacy online.

A survey of adults in the U.S. and the U.K. shows 78 percent have changed their online behavior due to data and privacy scandals. Seventy-four percent said they’re sharing less online.

Only 32 percent said it’s possible to have privacy online.

Also, 75% of respondents said government was primarily responsible for online privacy in 2018, but that plummeted to 6% in 2019.

Forty-eight percent said online privacy is a shared responsibility among government, the individual and companies whom data is shared.
