A Reuters/Ipsos poll released on April 4th found the majority of Americans are not willing to share their personal emails, text messages, phone calls and other online activity with US counter-terrorism investigators even to help foil terror plots.
|The poll shows that concern about privacy had increased from four years ago. In June 2013, 67 percent of those polled said they would not let investigators tap into their Internet activity to help the U.S. combat domestic terrorism, but in the recent poll the number has jumped to 75 percent. According to the survey that was taken from March 11 to the 20th, 32 percent of Americans polled said that the FBI and NSA were conducting "as much surveillance as is necessary". Seven percent thought there should be more surveillance. However, 37 percent said that the two agencies are "conducting too much surveillance on American citizens". Another 24 percent did not know.
