Developer Workshop

30 Juni 2021 @ 09:30 - 14:00

Towards a privacy toolkit for location based services 

What can help developers in building privacy friendly location based apps? 
How can informed consent user experience be improved? 
Based on the location history of a mobile phone, deep inferences can be made about a person’s life – thus posing a privacy risk that users are often not aware of. On top of that the UX of location sharing in mobile apps is currently severely lacking. Smartphones usually pass this information to apps and thus to companies by default, without clearly informing user about possible risks in an understandable way and without providing detailed and intuitive control options.
In this interactive session, we invite app developers as well as stakeholders surrounding the development of location based services to discuss various perspectives on location privacy and explore possible ways to improve the current practices of consent and location data handling. What is missing to develop privacy friendly location based services? The results of this workshop will contribute to the concept of an open source project that is aimed to enable developers to work responsibly with location data in an accessible way and ultimately give users the opportunity to regain sovereign control over their data. Furthermore the gathered insights will be integrated into future disseminations. Participants will be awarded with 10 € / hour and will receive a letter of attendance afterwards. You can apply using the application form linked below. The workshop will be held virtually using a web conferencing system. The workshop is limited to residents of the EU and UK. You will receive details after successful registration.
