Abstract

We used a survey design to compare three social cognitive models in their ability to explain intentions of precautionary online behaviour. The models were protection motivation theory (PMT), the reasoned action approach (RAA) and an integrated model comprising variables of these models. Data from 1,200 Dutch users of online banking were analysed with partial-least-squares path-modelling. The two separate models explain about equally much variance in precautionary online behaviour; in the integrated model the significant predictors of the two models remained significant. We conclude that both PMT and RAA make a unique contribution in explaining variance. Our results give practitioners potentially a wider range of options to design preventative measures.
