The number of users that use Tor daily is almost the same as those who use it weekly.

  1. Would you describe yourself mostly as a…?

The largest group of respondents admit to being a day to day technologists.
The group above is followed closely by a fair percentage of technologists with a good understanding of how the technology works and by technical experts.

  1. How much do you believe you need protection for your privacy and security online?
