We spend a third of our lives online

Since the advent of internet, users have been spending more and more time online. But do you know how much time this represents in a life? NordVPN published a study on its blog, and we gathered the essential in this article.

26 years on internet

Considering the study of NordVPN realized with Spanish, French and German internet users, we could calculate that European users spend an average of 26 years of their lives on internet. Spanish people spend more than 28 years online, French people 27 years, and for German people it is a little bit less, with “only” 24 years of their lives online.

The main use of internet connection for Spanish and German people is the streaming use, although Spanish people spend 8 hours a week on it, and German people spend half of this time on streaming platform. As for French users, they are mainly spending their connection time on social networks. You can find more details on NordVPN article.
