The Design of the User Interfaces for Privacy Enhancements for Android

by   Jason I. Hong, et al.

We present the design and design rationale for the user interfaces for Privacy Enhancements for Android (PE for Android). These UIs are built around two core ideas, namely that developers should explicitly declare the purpose of why sensitive data is being used, and these permission-purpose pairs should be split by first party and third party uses. We also present a taxonomy of purposes and ways of how these ideas can be deployed in the existing Android ecosystem.
