Comics as a Medium for Privacy Notices


Online privacy and security notices are rather ineffective: Very few people read them, and those who do find them difficult to understand and remember. How can we create privacy and security notices that are inviting, engaging, comprehensible, and memorable, even for users with dyslexia or a lower literacy level? In this paper, we propose to investigate the use of comics for privacy and security notices. We describe the ongoing development of comic notices for the “transparency and choice” part of Google’s privacy policy, as well as a research plan to test these notices against existing notices in various different settings.
