Conflicting information and stories on online security are part of the internet culture.
Myths are strongly integrated in our general knowledge.
Their existence is so closely linked to our rational data and practical knowledge on staying safe online that it is difficult to say what is true and what is not.
This is partly linked to the huge amount of information available. We are drowning in an ocean of data, making it hard to discern between what’s legitimate and what’s not, who’s a real expert and who’s just pretending to be.
