Paper Abstract
"Internet of Things (IoT) devices are becoming ubiquitous in the 21st-century world. Most individuals have interacted with at least one device such as an Alexa, Ring doorbell, or Nest thermostat. Many of these devices have access to personal information; however, the information security of these devices and the privacy of the personal information stored on these devices is not well understood by users. A survey was conducted to examine users’ experience, knowledge, perceptions, and behaviors associated with those devices’ privacy and security. The survey results revealed that participants perceive there is a risk with their IoT devices, however, there are two key issues that prevent them protecting themselves. First, they appear to have limited cybersecurity knowledge, including limited knowledge of who is accessing their data and for what purpose. Second, they do not always take the necessary precautions due to the inconvenience of such actions. These findings demonstrate that the privacy paradox is prevalent among users of IoT devices."
