McAfee recently released the results of a global digital assets survey and our digital devices hold an estimated $35,000 of value on average. Topping the charts are irreplaceable personal memories, photos and videos, at an estimated $17,065 in value. Additionally, 55% of respondents expressed they kept assets on their devices that are impossible to recreate, download or purchase again.
From our perspective, the study presents compelling evidence that our digital assets now have significant value, both emotionally and financially. McAfee’s infographic reveals the details of the survey.
