Encouraging Privacy-Aware Smartphone App Installation: What Would the Technically-Adept Do

Kulyk, Oksana and Gerber, Paul and Reinheimer, Benjamin and Renaud, Karen and Volkamer, Melanie :
Encouraging Privacy-Aware Smartphone App Installation: What Would the Technically-Adept Do.
NDSS Workshop on Usable Security (USEC) Internet Society.
[Conference or Workshop Item] , (2016)

Abstract

Smartphone apps can harvest very personal details from the phone with ease. This is a particular privacy concern. Unthinking installation of untrustworthy apps constitutes risky behaviour. This could be due to poor awareness or a lack of knowhow: knowledge of how to go about protecting privacy. It seems that Smartphone owners proceed with installation, ignoring any misgivings they might have, and thereby irretrievably sacrifice their privacy.
