U-PriSM 2: the second usable privacy and security for mobile devices workshop

The Second Usable Privacy and Security for Mobile Devices Workshop (U-PriSM 2) was held with MobileHCI'13. The U-PriSM 2 workshop was an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to discuss research challenges and experiences around the usable privacy and security of mobile devices (smart phones and tablets). Security often involves having non-security experts, or even novice users, regularly making important security decisions while their main focus is on other primary tasks. This is especially true for mobile devices where users can quickly and easily install apps, where user interfaces are minimal due to space constraints, and where users are often distracted by their environment.

Participants had a chance to explore mobile device usage and the unique usable security and privacy challenges that arise, discuss proposed systems and ideas that address these needs, and work towards the development of design principles to inform future development in the area.
