We surveyed over 1,900 Australian adults to build a picture around privacy attitudes and experiences in Australia as a part of our Australian Community Attitudes to Privacy Survey 2023.
In this video, 3 Australians share their concerns about how the personal information of children is protected.
Speaker 1: Gathering my children’s data, selling it. That doesn’t feel right, it’s unethical.
Speaker 2: Organisations do that? I mean children’s privacy is … that’s probably more important than an adult’s privacy because a child has no protection.
Speaker 3: I am concerned about my children’s personal information. How long will it stay out there and then how will that be manipulated?
Speaker 2: So you’ve gotta trust an organisation to be socially responsible to kids, and you just hope they are.
Speaker 1: I worry about my children being an easy target, that’s why I think it’s more important for them because they’re probably not capable enough to protect themselves.
Speaker 3: Kids are using parents’ phones. I see them driving around in prams and they can pretty much get into anything.
Speaker 1: I worry about their privacy and how best to manage it.
Speaker 2: I don’t think organisations should have access for a start and they definitely shouldn’t be sharing it.
