"Netiquette" and married couples

From the study:

Men are more associated with activities that have been associated with internet addiction. Men usually take more risks in their online activity.

Women are more likely to have lower computer self-efficacy and less positive internet attitudes. Women are more aware of privacy and economic risks in online transactions.

6% of married internet users have met their partner online.

In 30% of the couples at least one person checked their partner’s emails or read their partner’s SMS messages without them knowing. In 20% of the couples at least one the partners had checked their spouse’s browser history.
