They form the basis of some of the most powerful encryption systems currently known. Prime numbers are intimately involved in internet security protocols.

You can probably live your entire life without ever personally becoming involved in a situation (outside of school) where you need to make use of prime numbers or their properties. Or, you can choose a career path where properties of prime numbers are something you work with nearly every day. Ultimately, their importance to you is up to you.
