Cloud computing has been activated as a means of reducing costs and the effective utilization of IT infrastructure. Despite these changes, Service providers focus almost exclusively on the issues offering service availability without ensuring data privacy. The purpose of this paper is to analyze privacy threats in cloud computing and protect mobile user's personal information against from increasing privacy infringement attacks. So the authors suggested that privacy risk detection mechanism is the most appropriate means of protecting data privacy in cloud computing. The IDRP (Intelligent Detecting Risk based on Privacy) model is composed of these five mechanisms: Information Verified Mechanism, Path Checked Mechanism, Malicious Coding Detecting Mechanism, Semantic Analyzing Mechanism and Notice and Alert.
