MEASURING PRIVACY ATTITUDES AND BEHAVIOURS
The exhaustive use of interconnected devices collecting extensive amounts of data situates our privacy at danger. We make privacy decisions every day, unaware of potential harms they may cause. Despite the privacy concerns, we sign up to new online services, buy the latest IoT (The Internet of Things) devices, mobiles, and feed them with a large amount of information about ourselves, and frequently our friends and families.
Agnieszka Kitkowska’s research focuses on the investigation of the difference between privacy attitudes and behaviours. The objective is to examine to what extent factors such as emotion & trust influence privacy decision making. She asks whether we can successfully nudge people to make more privacy-aware decisions, by implementing suitable choice architecture affecting risk and benefit calculation.
