  • Improved User Security Through Graphical Feedback

    Justice Juraschek, Dannie M. Stanley · Jul 2016
    thumbnail A plethora of methods of being secure are available to end-users. However, there is a lack of adoption of those methods. We argue that one of the primary reasons for this is the absence of proper feedback within security-sensitive situations. We believe that a graphical representation of security-related consequences can positively influence...
