I think the overall stats for people using cryptography is that low
because it is or seems too complicated for them. A lot of people in the
world do not even know how to install Windows, and a whole lot of people
even can't install programs on their computers properly. This is not meant
in a discriminating way at all, this is the real life.

Personally I think a lot of people care about privacy, but are just not
able and/or frightened to install something complex on their machines.
