Study finds online privacy concerns among Americans on the rise
WASHINGTON (AP) - Lynn Boyden, a college professor in Los Angeles who teaches website design, says she has developed two identities online: a public one for her professional life and a private one that only a few close friends can access.
She tries to block advertising trackers when she can and limits what personal data might wind up on public sites.
It's an approach that she says works, although it takes time and attention.
"It's a sliding scale," said Ms Boyden of what information she chooses to share. "Some things are and should be private."
