Between User Perceptions and Designers' Intentions: How to Improve User Control over Personal Information

Abstract: Users should be able to exercise control over their personal information - a consensus that made its way into legal frameworks (GDPR, CCPA). Yet, in practice little has changed for end-users (data subjects) in terms of personal control over their data. My talk will discuss how to overcome the challenges of user control over personal information by understanding how people perceive the extent of their control based on the situational context, system design and relying on their experiences and expectations.
