The evolution of mobile network technologies and smartphones has provided mobile consumers with unprecedented access to Internet and value-added services while on the move. Privacy issues in such context become critically important because vendors may access a large volume of personal information. Although several pioneering studies have examined general privacy risks, few systematic attempts have been made to provide a theory-driven framework on the specific nature of privacy concerns among…

Mobile Applications and Access to Personal Information: A Discussion of Users' Privacy Concerns
TLDR
An extended approach for mobile users’ information privacy concerns (MUIPC) analyzes four dimensions of access to personal information, i.e., personal identity, location, device content, and system and network settings and finds three dimensions to be significantly influential.
CONSUMER PRIVACY IN THE ERA OF BIG DATA: A SURVEY OF SMARTPHONE USERS’ CONCERNS
TLDR
It has been found that consumers’ demographic differences have varying degrees of impact on their concerns for information privacy in the context of big data.
A Longitudinal Study of Information Privacy on Mobile Devices
TLDR
The results indicate that consumers are best modeled as "bounded" rational actors concerning their disclosure behavior and mobile application providers should be aware that increasing the benefits of information disclosure via the app may have the counterintuitive effect of increasing perceived risk and reducing consumer disclosure.
How Privacy Affects the Acceptance of Mobile Payment solutions
TLDR
The model empirically validates privacy concerns and investigates its antecedents and predictive power to explain the intention to use MP systems to be the first to establish an APCO-model for the field of MP, thereby filling an essential research gap.
Empirical Examination of Information Privacy Concerns Instrument in the Social Media Context
TLDR
It is argued that the existing privacy model needs to be replicated in this new context to assess its validity and explanation power and it is revealed that the three-factor second order structure of CFSMIP outperforms the four-factorsecond order structure from prior research.
Privacy exposed : Consumer responses to data collection and usage practices of mobile apps
TLDR
This dissertation showed that app users engage in a privacy trade-off when downloading mobile apps, and that the data collection and usage practices of apps might have negative consequences for marketers, because the more information apps collect, the more negative users are.
Mobile users' information privacy concerns instrument and IoT
TLDR
This research demonstrates the MUIPC is indeed applicable to privacy research within IoT, thus opening another avenue for future research and confirms the influence of information privacy upon intention within the IoT realm.
Privacy Maintenance in Self-Digitization
TLDR
Empirical support is found for the importance of privacy perceptions in a user's intention to continue to use their fitness tracker and willingness to disclose information moderates the relationship between perceived benefit and users' intentions to continue using a fitness tracker.

The results indicated that the technological assurance mechanism played the most important role in assuring consumers’ perceived control over personal information and benefits the privacy and human-computer interaction research in the Information Systems discipline.
Internet Users' Information Privacy Concerns (IUIPC): The Construct, the Scale, and a Causal Model
TLDR
The results of this study indicate that the second-order IUIPC factor, which consists of three first-order dimensions--namely, collection, control, and awareness--exhibited desirable psychometric properties in the context of online privacy.
Examining the Formation of Individual's Privacy Concerns: Toward an Integrative View
TLDR
An integrative model suggesting that privacy concerns form because of an individual’s disposition to privacy or situational cues that enable one person to assess the consequences of information disclosure is developed.
The Role of Push-Pull Technology in Privacy Calculus: The Case of Location-Based Services
TLDR
This study extends the privacy calculus model to explore the role of information delivery mechanisms (pull and push) in the efficacy of three privacy intervention approaches (compensation, industry self-regulation, and government regulation) in influencing individual privacy decision making and suggests that providing financial compensation for push-based LBS is more important than it is for pull- based LBS.
An Empirical Examination of the Concern for Information Privacy Instrument
TLDR
This study examines the factor structure of the concern for information privacy (CFIP) instrument and suggests that each dimension of this instrument is reliable and distinct and that CFIP may be more parsimoniously represented as a higher-order factor structure rather than a correlated set of first-order factors.
Privacy in the Digital Age: A Review of Information Privacy Research in Information Systems
TLDR
A critical analysis of the literature reveals that information privacy is a multilevel concept, but rarely studied as such, and calls for research on information privacy to use a broader diversity of sampling populations and to publish more design and action research in journal articles that can result in IT artifacts for protection or control of information privacy.
