Due to the ubiquity of IoT devices, privacy violations can now occur across our cyber-physical-social lives. An individual is often not aware of the possible privacy implications of their actions and commonly lacks the ability to dynamically control the undesired access to themselves or their information. Present approaches to privacy management lack an immediacy of feedback and action, tend to be complex and non-engaging, are intrusive and socially inappropriate, and are inconsistent with users’ natural interactions with the physical and social environment. This results in ineffective end-user privacy management. To address these challenges, I focus on designing tangible systems, which promise to provide high levels of stimulation, rich feedback, direct, and engaging interaction experiences. This is achieved through intuitive awareness mechanisms and control interactions, conceptualizing interaction metaphors, implementing tangible interfaces for privacy management and demonstrating their utility within various real life scenarios.
