    Broader project

    We seldom see incremental trade-offs offered between privacy and other qualities in online services. Many markets are dominated by large firms offering services for “free” and in exchange for personal data. There are less popular offerings in the other extreme, providing privacy and anonymity in exchange for lower performance and convenience. Offerings in between the two extremes are not common, despite post-Snowden surveys showing that a considerable group of citizens find privacy very important.

    The absence of services to fill this market gap is puzzling, and what this research project focuses on. In the initial phase we interviewed entrepreneurs and developers building privacy-enhanced services, to better understand their challenges,  and analyzed the results.

    In the second (current) phase of the project, we are conducting a survey to the broader community, to grasp how representative our initial findings are, and to evaluate possible policies.
