VentureBeat for PlayFab

The majority of gamers lack confidence in game developers’ ability to ensure security and safe play, according to a survey by backend service PlayFab.
The findings showed that 83 percent of players believe that game developers should be responsible for securing a player’s personal data, but fewer than 40 percent said they feel confident with current safeguards. That’s not surprising, considering security breaches that have taken place across the industry, such as the infamous hack of the Sony PlayStation Network in 2011, when hackers stole identify information for 77 million players.
