Project Description:

This project will educate consumers about biometrics on social media platforms; what it is, what it means for them now, 5 months from now, 5 years from now, and possibilities 10 years down the line. The focus is on how to identify biometrics in social media, how to evaluate short, medium, and long-term potential privacy consequences, and how to make privacy choices and/or opt out of biometrics uses (when possible) on major social media platform. The project will focus on all consumers in the US in educational materials, and this project will also take a portion of the funding and create materials for highly vulnerable populations including victims of crime, seniors, and children.
