Most consumers (58%) think the threat to online privacy is a crisis, an uptick from last June when consumers were more evenly split.

Young people are more willing to accept things as they are, according to an Axios-SurveyMonkey poll.

18–24-year-old are most split with only 1 percentage point separating those who accept some risks (48%) and those who want to force change (47%).
But for those 65 and older, 62% say the current situation is a crisis.

Methodology : These data are from a SurveyMonkey online poll conducted among adults ages 18 and older in the United States. Respondents were selected from the more than 2 million people who take surveys on the SurveyMonkey platform each day. The survey was conducted March 5-6, 2019 among 2,122 adults. The modeled error estimate for the full sample is plus or minus 3.5 percentage points and full crosstabs are available here.
