Alarmed over the recent data breach incidents like the Facebook-Cambridge Analytica, nine out of 10 Irish students are worried about their online privacy, a survey suggests.
Many of the 5,500 students surveyed have set their social media accounts to private mode, which limits how much of their information is shared publicly, the report said.
However, when it comes to Snapchat -- the most popular platform among students -- one in three allowed the app to share their exact location at all times.
The survey also found that 41 per cent of students are in favour of a smartphone ban in school.
