Study reveals majority of adults share intimate details via Unsecured Digital Devices

Seventy Percent of 18 – 24 Year Olds Receive Sexually Suggestive Content, and Nearly Half Share Passwords

India – Feb. 5, 2014 – Today, McAfee released the findings from their 2014 Love, Relationships & Technology survey. For a second year in a row, the company examined how more than 1,500 consumers are sharing and storing intimate data on their mobile devices, especially with current or former significant others. The study highlights how sharing personal content such as suggestive texts, naked photos, suggestive video and passcodes on these devices can potentially lead to cyber-stalking and the exposure of private content leaking online.

While 98% of respondents use their mobile device to take photos, 54% send or receive intimate content including video, photos, emails and messages. Of those surveyed, 69% are securing their smartphone with a password or passcode, a 30 percentage point increase from last year’s result. However, 46% of U.S. adults still share their passwords with another individual (down from 54%), while 42% use the same password across multiple devices, increasing the likelihood that these mobile devices will become hacked.

“With all the stories we’ve heard about intimate photos being leaked, it’s hard to believe people are still sharing their passwords,” said Gary Davis, vice president of McAfee consumer business. “Ultimately, they’re increasing the risks of these photos becoming public and possibly jeopardizing their identity and reputation. Consumers must take precautions and use mobile security to ensure that what should be private stays private.”

McAfee advises consumers not to share passwords or codes for mobile devices with others to help keep their content secure. Mobile users should avoid using weak passwords that can be easily determined such as birthdays, numbers in a row or repeat numbers for their devices. Rather, six-digit passcodes and words translated into numbers using your mobile keypad are stronger and should be utilized.

Additional findings from the survey include:

For Your Eyes Only

Seventy percent of 18 – 24 year olds receive sexually suggestive content from someone, the largest percentage of all age groups. More men are likely to use their mobile device to send and receive similar content (61% men vs. 48% women). Forty-five percent of U.S. adults say they stored intimate content that they have received in comparison to 40% who store risqué photos, videos or messages they have sent. Of those who have sent intimate or racy content, 77% have sent this content to their significant other, while 1 in 10 individuals have sent similar content to a total stranger.

Privacy Gender Gap

According to the survey, more men than women protect their mobile devices (74% men vs. 65% women). Given the desire to protect their mobile devices and its content more than two-thirds of men are interested in purchasing biometric security embedded capabilities (e.g. face recognition, voice recognition, fingerprint recognition, etc.)

The Case of the Ex

While 96% of U.S. adults surveyed trust their significant other with intimate content or otherwise private information they have sent, only 32% have asked their partner to delete the information when ending the relationship. In addition to sharing passwords, 50% share mobile phone content and 48% share email accounts. Yet, a quarter of respondents have taken their partner’s mobile device to see other content stored on it, including messages and photos. One in five people are likely to log into their significant other’s Facebook account at least once a month, and only 30% of those surveyed admitted to stalking their significant other’s ex on social media, with 18 to 24 year olds being the top age group.

Public Display of Online Affection

With 91% of respondents on a social media platform (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram), of those who answered they would be celebrating Valentine’s Day on social media, 76% of respondents plan to post messages to others while 58% will post photos. Of those that responded, more women than men plan to celebrate their love on social media on Valentine’s Day (80% women vs. 72% men).

“Save trees, save paper” is what we have seriously ventured into.

What difference does saving a few pieces of paper make? Read on, you may be surprised.
A4 paper Equals 600ml water Plus 34g of CO2 Plus 2.4g landfill waste
Single A4 piece of paper 600ml water 34g of CO2 2.4g landfill waste
Trees
A single tree accounts for 8,333 pieces of A4 paper, but there are many more costs than the tree alone.
Water usage

Did you know that it takes 26,700 litres of water to produce 1 tonne of paper? With around 40,000 sheets of A4 paper per tonne, that equates to over 600ml of water for a single sheet of A4 paper.
Greenhouse gas emissions

For each tonne of paper produced, around 1.36 tonnes of CO2 emissions are released into the atmosphere. In context, a single six-cylinder car would have to drive 3,800 kilometres to equal the same CO2 emissions as 1 tonne of paper!

Its a small step that we have taken for the betterment of environment. Please do join us in this initiative..

Jaguar Land Rover CEO, Dr. Ralf Speth said:
“We are here in India to showcase the very latest offerings from our two great British brands. India continues to be an important and dynamic market for Jaguar Land Rover with year on year sales growth. This demonstrates that we are delivering our promise to create exciting products and unrivalled customer experiences. We aim to enhance the potential of the Indian market by growing our dealer network by 25 per cent this year and will now manufacture our flagship model, the Jaguar XJ, in Pune”.

Today, the company confirmed that Jaguar’s flagship model, the XJ, would become the third model to be made at the firm’s local manufacturing facility in Pune, following the introduction of the Land Rover Freelander 2 in 2011 and Jaguar XF in 2013.

To support future growth in the Indian market, Jaguar Land Rover is continuing to expand its dealer network. Today the company has a network of 19 distribution outlets across 17 cities with a plan to increase this to 24 by the end of the fiscal year.

Jaguar Land Rover, now in its sixth year of Tata Motors Limited ownership, delivered its best ever full year global sales performance in 2013, retailing 425,006 vehicles – a 19 per cent increase over the previous year. Sales records were set in thirty eight international markets for both brands.

This positive trend is reflected in India where the Jaguar and Land Rover brands have gained significant prominence and popularity since entering the market in 2009. Retail sales were up by 21 per cent in 2013 and Jaguar was one of the fastest growing luxury car brands in the country.
