Nevertheless, there appears to be interest on the part of Millennials in protection, even if it isn't on a professional level. 82 percent of respondents said that their laptop or desktop was protected by either a password or some other kind of security measures, while 61 percent and 30 percent said that their mobile phone or tablet, respectively, were protected.
In terms of online accounts, however, there seemed to be less diligent behavior; only 29 percent of respondents had changed their passwords for their social media and online bank accounts in the last month. Perhaps more alarming, however, is that 20 percent had never changed their online bank account password at all. Bearing such statistics in mind, it would appear that there is still more work to be done in instilling the proper habits and practices among Millennials for secure online behavior.
