Consentful surveillance: supporting user understanding and control

Gomer, Richard C. and schraefel, m.c. (2016) Consentful surveillance: supporting user understanding and control At Everyday Surveillance Workshop, CHI 2016, United States. 08 May 2016.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Surveillance and surveillance-like practices are common on the free web services that we use. We argue that, although such practices can provide value to users, they should be done ‘consentfully’ as a way of empowering individuals and applying consumer preference to the market. Our research on this subject raises some key challenges for interaction designers and researchers to address: explanations, timing, and measurement.
