Tesla and Microsoft overtake Apple for privacy, survey finds
2018 has been the year of privacy. A year in which privacy has been on everyone’s lips due to the different scandals of some of the big ones like Facebook with Cambridge Analitica and Google with Google Plus… With each new scandal, Apple always came out to show its face stating that the data belongs to the users, no one else.
But it seems that this posture has not allowed you to convert for users in the company that best manages user data, at least that is what emerges from the latest find that the research company Toluna that we can read in Recode.
The survey was carried out between December 9 and 15 among just over 1,000 people, being the only What was the company that offered the least security when storing your data?. As expected, Facebook leads the ranking with a huge advantage over the second. According to the survey, 40% of users doubt Facebook’s ability to keep user data secure.
According to these same users, Twitter is much safer, since only 8% of those surveyed do not trust Jack Dorsey’s microblogging social network as much as the Jeff Bezos Amazon company. In third position we find Uber, followed by Google, Lyft, with 7%, 6% and 6% respectively.
With 4% we find both Snap and Apple. Only 4% of the 1,000 respondents say they have some kind of doubt about how Apple processes and manages user information. This result is interesting taking into account Apple’s policy regarding user privacythis being one of the most important aspects for the company.
According to this same survey, both Netflix and Tesla are the most reliable companies with 1%. Microsoft, who has stayed out of this controversy throughout the year, it is the second safest company, doubting the treatment that it makes of the data only 2%.
