You can lead Americans towards greater digital security, but you can’t make them trust it. That, at least, appears to be the conclusion drawn from a new study from Yougov on behalf of U.S. email portal mail.com. The study involved more than 1,000 Americans over the age of 18. According to recent research, over half (58 percent) of Americans prefer passwords over biometric authentication methods such as eye scans or facial recognition when it comes to keeping their personal data safe. And given the propensity of many digital denizens to use “password” or “1234” as their protective string of choice, this mistrust is probably something of a problem.
