There are two security/privacy scenarios in which a computer user might just click on everything…click an interesting link, click to dismiss a warning dialog, click “ok” to terms and conditions, or web-browser plug-in installs.

  1. When the security of your system is so good that you are confident there’s nothing afoul. You are impervious to privacy vulnerabilities, phishing scams, and viruses. Since it’s all good, go ahead and click on everything!

  2. When the security of your system is so futile or compromised already that you just don’t care. You’ve given up hope that your data is secure or private and come to grips with the idea that privacy is a farce, and that viruses are just a part of the reality of having an online life.

Since you tend to click on everything, which situation are you in?
