However, another fact may attract your attention: in some certain cases, the number of users who believe that their devices are spying on them is much bigger than that of users in general. At the moment, 14% of Indian people are using security cameras, but up to 27% think that they are being monitored by their own devices. In terms of smart voice assistants, the case almost has no difference.

Also in the research, about a third are afraid that they may be isolated from the surrounding society due to the growing development of technology, while about 34% think that Artificial Intelligence (AI) will replace human interactions. 32% say that humans may be more and more dependent on technology.
