概要 Purpose: As part of an international study of knowledge of and attitudes to Snowden's revelations about the activities of the National Security Agency/Government Communications Headquarters, this paper aims to deal with Mexico, taking its socio-cultural and political environment surrounding privacy and state surveillance into account.

Design/methodology/approach: A questionnaire was answered by 160 Mexican University students. The quantitative responses to the survey were statistically analysed as well as qualitative considerations of free text answers.

Findings: Snowden's revelations have had a limited influence over Mexican youngsters' attitudes toward privacy and state surveillance, although there is a great awareness by Mexican young people of individual rights issues.

Practical implications: The study results imply a need to build a collective awareness of the importance of the right to privacy and its responsibilities, the available technological options for individuals to exert their own privacy and security and the democratic means to agree and enforce appropriate legal restrictions on state surveillance.

Social implications: The results of this study based indicate an urgent necessity for providing Mexican youngsters with opportunities to learn more about privacy, liberty, individual autonomy and national security.

Originality/value: This study is the first attempt to investigate the social impact of Snowden's revelations on Mexican students' attitudes toward privacy and state surveillance as part of cross-cultural analyses between eight countries.
