Context-Based Personalised Settings for Mobile Location Sharing
Source: University of St Andrews
Location-Based Services (LBSes) are increasing in popularity, but create many privacy concerns for users. LBSes usually rely on the same default privacy settings for all users. In this position paper, the authors claim that such settings are inappropriate for location sharing and that settings should instead rely on contextual information to recommend personalised privacy settings for users. They present results of an initial user study (n=80) to corroborate this position, and suggest avenues for further research.
