How Long Would It Take To Read All Of The Internet Privacy Policies?

We have all been in the position where we have to choose to read an endless privacy agreement, or just click “I Agree” and start using the surface.

Needless to say, most of us choose the click of a button instead of hours of reading.  Suppose you did read every single page though, how long would it take?

According to a study by NPR.org, it would take just over 250 hours or one month of work to read through every policy we are exposed to over a year.

If people actually were to read the policies placed before them, Cranor says, the total cost — in time alone — would be around $781 billion a year.

So realistically no one has ever read all of the privacy policies that they come across, but has anyone even read one from cover to cover?
