Technology capability vs human capability

The real challenge here is that technical capability of devices is increasing at an incredible pace, while for all but the most savvy users default settings and blind trust seem to prevail.

In some cases the technology implementation may be completely wrong and insecure, regardless of the implementation.

In other cases it will be configuration.

Most ordinary users will not be able to recognise the first and properly mitigate the second.
