Survey shows people still need help.

Google Registry, the Alphabet division responsible for new top level domain names such as .dev and .app, has launched a website at Safe.page that helps people learn about phishing and secure websites. The company released survey results today showing that people still need security help.

The survey of over 2,000 adults shows:

  • 42% didn’t realize the difference between http and https in a web address
  • 69% didn’t realize that https could be used in a phishing attack
  • 64% used the same password on multiple websites
One interesting non-security datapoint in the survey is about Gen Z. 34% of those surveyed between 16-24 who have already created a website did it for a class project. This is an interesting opportunity for domain registries and registrars.
