Negotiating mobile app permissions

Baarslag, Tim, Liccardi, Ilaria, Gerding, Enrico H., Gomer, Richard and schraefel, m.c. (2015) Negotiating mobile app permissions At Amsterdam Privacy Conference (APC 2015), Netherlands. 23 - 26 Oct 2015. 3 pp.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


We propose a design in which the user can negotiate a mobile app's permissions to access their personal data. For example, users who prefer not to view ads could opt to pay an additional fee for this. However, negotiating with each app might be cumbersome and difficult to achieve by users. Hence, to make this process easier, we propose an approach that uses an agent-based framework that employs software agents to represent users in their privacy negotiation with the app in an automated manner.
