Security Warnings for Children’s Smart Phones: A First Design Approach

Abstract : In this paper we introduce a first design approach for security warnings on smart phones for children, based on recommendations of a paediatrician expert. To ease the understanding of malware threats and facilitate a adequate handling, children friendly design principles and simple descriptions are used. Amongst visual information, acoustical and haptic information are used to raise children’s attention to the warning. Currently, a first implemented prototype of security warnings is tested with primary school students.
