I’m not sure whether this is good news or whether it reinforces the dour stereotype. A survey by the Carnegie Trust UK of 5 000 people of all ages across the UK and Ireland found that Scots:
- had the highest proportion of people using a passcode to protect their phone
- were as likely to verify information against another source than not verify it
- had the highest proportion of people reporting to use a passcode
- were most likely to turn off location services
- were more likely to use a different (non-real) name online
- were less likely to use public wifi online banking
So, different again?
