What is this research about?
The aim of this research is to find novel and effective solutions to feedback privacy-sensitive runtime data to users in order to raise their awareness and improve their control over unintended data disclosure.
Why this research?
While smartphone privacy-sensitive runtime data has been proved to be effective in order to raise users’ awareness and understanding about the apps’ behaviour, there is a gap in knowledge on how such information can be visualised and fed back to users.
How is it being conducted?
Using the research through design (RtD) approach and mixed method research design to develop and assess novel data visualisation interfaces.
