Recent years have witnessed the bloom development of the human-centered wireless sensing applications, in which some human information, such as the user's identity and motions, can be retrieved through analyzing the signal distortion caused by the target person. However, the openness of wireless transmission raises increasing concerns on user privacy, since either the human identity or human motion is sensitive in certain scenarios, including personal residence, laboratory, and office. Researchers have reported that commodity WiFi signals can be abused to identify users. To dispel this threat, in this paper we propose a privacy-preserving framework to effectively hide the information of user behaviors in wireless signals while retaining the ability of user authentication. The core of our framework is a novel Siamese network-based deep model, namely RFBP-Net. In this way, wireless sensing reveals user information moderately. We conduct extensive experiments on both the real WiFi and RFID system and open datasets. The experiment results show that RFBP-Net is able to significantly reduce the activity recognition accuracy, i.e., 70 system, with a slight penalty in the user authentication accuracy, i.e., only 5
