Entering personal details online among established net users in the UK 2015

This statistic displays the findings of a survey on the feelings of established internet users (users that have been going online for over five year) over entering personal details online in the United Kingdom (UK) in 2015. In 2015, it was found that 41 percent of established internet users reported being happy to enter their personal email address online. However, more respondents had some concerns about this and eleven percent even stated that they never would enter their mail address because of security concerns. Established users were most concerned with entering their home phone number. Over a quarter of respondents stated that they would never share it online. A majority of respondents was at least somewhat concerned over entering credit card information and personal address details.

How would you feel about entering these types of personal information while using the internet?*
