Why the need for internet security?
Many older individuals are keen internet users and are quite well clued up when it comes to technology.
Around 50% of adults who are aged 65 or over, are using smartphones, and spend a lot of their time at home online.
There has been a rise in these numbers, especially in families who seek help from social security, or they are some assistance programs. Comcast’s offering of their low-cost Internet Essentials being one such service.
Many programs make internet connections possible for low-income households.
While this gives older adults something to do during the day, it does open all manner of ways that this older generation can be cared for while they are at home.
The problem is that every year, seniors fall foul of frauds and are losing out to the tune of tens of billion dollars.
It is crucial for more internet security and online privacy for this generation of users. They are prime targets for scammers.
