Not all Internet users are careless about their digital security - but many are still victims of cybercriminals and stalkers due to mistakes online. Here are ten online privacy statistics that may surprise you.

The online world sometimes feels like a mysterious place where we don't know people yet communicate with them and we can vent out our frustrations and thoughts without disclosing our identity. We feel we are safe under the mask of an online identity.

The feeling of not being known gives us the confidence to share a huge part of our life on the internet. We feel secured as no one knows us in person. Our audience is unaware of our past and can only sneak into what we portray about ourselves, that is, the fabricated reality. But is this true? Are we really safe online? Does the internet provide us complete anonymity?
