Next ONLINE Digital Privacy Salon 10/03/22: Dark Patterns


In this Salon, Arianna Rossi, researcher at SnT, University of Luxembourg, will take us on a journey into the world of Dark Patterns

Online services are designed to offer the best experience to their users and accommodate their needs. However, online services can also use manipulative design strategies known as “dark patterns” to trick users into accepting privacy-invasive practices and make it overly difficult to access or erase their personal information. But how pervasive are dark patterns? And are people aware and able to respond to them? How might we free the web from them? In this interactive presentation, we are going to answer these and other questions.
