How worried are we about relying on the web?
Many Americans have long had a love-hate relationship with the web — simultaneously adopting the technology while fearing its growing influence in our lives. That narrative may be slowly shifting, if the findings of a new Rasmussen poll are any indication.
This year, the poll found significantly fewer Americans worry about the safety of doing business online. In 2018, 56% of American adults said they worried relying on the web for business and financial transactions makes the economy vulnerable to attack. That number is down from 69% in 2017.
