TITLE: Consumer Privacy Protection on Mobile Devices

ABSTRACT:
I first present our recent twenty person, three week field study in which we measured Android applications' collection of personal information and collected participants’ qualitative feedback on the exposure of their own data. I discuss limitations of the current mobile ecosystem that permitted "unexpected use" of privacy-sensitive information, including ineffective permission request dialogs, lack of data flow feedback to users, and little technical support to app developers for “privacy debugging”. I present early results of my ongoing projects to address some of these issues.
