Designing for privacy in mobile and web apps

A session at Interaction14

Friday 7th February, 2014

2:45pm to 2:45pm (AMT)

Practice privacy by design, not privacy by disaster!

Almost every application requires some gathering of personal data today. Where that data is stored, who has access to it, and what is done with that data later on is becoming increasingly important as more and more of our data lives online today. Privacy disasters are costly and can be devastating to a company. UX designers and developers need to have a framework for protecting user data, communicating it to users, and making sure that the entire process is smoothly handled.

This talk covers best practices for designing web and mobile apps with the privacy of individual users in mind. Privacy has been an even bigger issue with location-based apps, and we ran into it head-first when we began work on Geoloqi. Designing an interface that made one's personal empowering instead of creepy was our goal. The stories from our design desisions with Geoloqi will also be included in this talk.
