Personal Information


When asked by Reason Rupe pollsters whom they would trust the most with their personal information, 35 percent of adults in the late March survey said the IRS, 18 percent the National Security Agency, 10 percent Google, and 5 percent Facebook. A significant 28 percent said they would trust none of these organizations. In the next question in the survey, 36 percent said the NSA would be most likely to violate their privacy, followed by Facebook (26 percent), the IRS (18 percent), and Google (12 percent). Just 1 percent volunteered that none of these would do so.
