Cybersecurity experts recommend, regardless of your age, the use of care and caution when sharing your personal data; however, according to a recent study by the Identity Theft Resource Center that Americans in their 30's are more likely to give out their personal information. Consequently, 30-39 year olds report identity theft in greater numbers than any other age range.
It is always important to exercise caution when providing personal information online, regardless of age.
The analysis also showed that while people of all ages are at risk for identity theft, the FTC received the most identity theft reports for Americans aged 30-39. The ITRC said millennials are more willing to share their personal data online and are less fearful of their information being compromised than other age groups.
