Last year, a survey asked how much people thought their personal data was worth, and the average was $340. But that was before we all found out Facebook sold it for a lot less . . . and it was being used to manipulate us like we never realized.
And according to a new survey, now we’re more afraid of having our data stolen than ANYTHING else. 55% of people say that would be the worst thing for thieves to take . . . especially our Social Security number, bank info, and medical records.
23% say they’re most afraid of having their wallet stolen . . . 10% say car . . . 6% say phone . . . and 6% say house keys.
