Privacy in Augmented Location Based Services -A Paradox
The world is on the threshold of taking technology to an all-new level. With Augmented Reality (AR) applications taking over the markets at a rapid pace, the thin line difference between user interface and the physical world seems to have been obliterated almost completely. Though this has completely revolutionized the way users and technology evangelists have started thinking and simplified the way of looking at the world, it comes with its own perilous security and privacy implications. Amongst the numerous domains into which AR has divulged, the most sensitive sphere includes Location Based Services (LBS). This has been prophesied as a reason to rethink and worry about, however, the development is still on the rise and little has been looked into protecting users' privacy.
