Human Computer Interaction and Online Privacy

Data Skeptic


My Name is Moses Namara I am a PhD candidate in University Walk Online privacy career, investigating people with experiences on expectations of online privacy I am. Originally from Uganda was pointing, follow on came to the useful known I'm on my way to getting that beauty, and when it comes to online privacy. Can you be a bit more specific? Are you concerned with things like the SSL level or a user's relationship to their browsers? Where your interests lie, my interests fly A. Team, so I'm coming in not at the technical aspect of privacy, but I'd be used experience aspect of privacy, and so the key question being held. We hope uses money to privacy online as most our lives transition to use of nine technologies. Yeah, in particular, has the you know, covid nineteen in the stay at home orders, and all these sorts of things. How has that affected the privacy? World has a fictive privacy in terms of most people now being forced to interact connects through various forms of technology, really honest, various forms students having to download and use online technologies. Stay in touch with teachers to parents. Adults having to Donald Shishir, meet the I in terms of. With the news better so making sure that they can connect with other people that no money they would have meant Christopher's physically. So in terms of how effective privacy is that? We're seeing a lot of people now. Adopting new technologies, they haven't used all use mobile technologies higher rate than they would know. Maybe do, and so that definitely being what technology they end up using presents, different privacy, issues and challenges. Is Privacy I don't know the truth to this. I'm not an immunologist. Human being stayed home for two weeks. You know the virus would be effectively defeat, even though that's kind of impossible, if everyone used two factor authentication and some simple protocols, would that solve privacy? No different in you hoping tons of protecting people's access to their online accounts online logging online, they need to log into right, but that's the security level in terms of offering people the option to actually secure log into their accounts and making sure archaeology, the possums were trying to request or log into the account, so that help secure the data in one aspect, the other aspect in terms of privacy is that we biscuit looking at the data that they explicitly maybe give to the technology will looking I at the data that the technology that they're using requires for you to function. Function with looking at the data that is not explicitly given by the user, but implicitly in five by the technology right based on different, maybe algorithms that use, and so we are looking at all these different aspects in terms of holidays uses to come into play on. How do we ensure weather? That access is restricted to only people who the used as comfortable sharing with all having people here? This is a really interesting comparison. You guys have in the paper that that will talk I'm sure a lot about privacy at a glance, the user centric design of glance data exposure visualizations. To impact there, but if you start with, could you expand on the difference there between privacy in terms of settings and privacy of data what say user giving up in each case I guess. Privacy in terms of sittings are basically the control is that guide enable uses to set or let be known what level of privacy they're comfortable with, and this is usually enabled by technology that they're using so these technologies like a social media. Company will site like this because controls that enable people to sit with the one I share Nixon, that fitting that level, and so this is hoping that way then we have privacy in terms of the data, so the data is basically any use of using information beyond what the primary purpose was, and so I think that's where the issue comes in comes of using this data in other secondary Rewe's deviant of the primary ways that someone has. To be used what I like to think about when I think about did yeah, when I'm installing an APP I'm often being asked. Do you give it permissions for your camera or this or that? And often it'll say you know access to contact the Internet, which is such a weird Pandora's box to me. You know it a weather APP THAT'S GONNA! Talk to the weather server and get the weather for my zip code, or is it an APP that's going to? Be All of my private data and send it to the mothership. I've never felt like I really had a good I could be turned that on her off, but I never had a full control setting. Is that something you envision that? Maybe users would get more control of or do we trust that the user can manage those controls maybe too complicated I don't know what do you think so? That's a sexually good that you raised that because my research looks at what is the comfortable level at which uses able to engage and uses controls, but festival demo countries. You have the more less likely achieve all. All those controls because yesterday, a huge number of them on so that requires quick native, if looked to the ARCUS, fully seek out of control is unused them appropriately, but at the same time we need such was in place, because then uses a able to explicitly kind of make the edition non or set a liberal privacy comfortable. We've now the trick becomes the paradox becomes. We have these countries in place, but we have fewer people using them right, and so it becomes a question of. How do we meet these needs where they are on? How do we ensure that they are motivated enough to actually? Understand what this is due on. Be Able to actually go unused him comfortably. So
