The increasing adoption of smartphones and their capability of collecting personal and contextual information have generated a tremendous increment in the production of (personal) data.

Abstract

The increasing adoption of smartphones and their capability of collecting personal and contextual information have generated a tremendous increment in the production of (personal) data. The availability of such a huge amount of data represents an invaluable opportunity for organizations and individuals to enable new application scenarios. However, it has also significantly increased the public concern on data privacy. In this paper, we present My Data Store, a tool enabling people to control and share their personal data. We tested My Data Store with 63 participants that used it in order to manage their own data collected from mobile phones and through experience sampling applications. Preliminary results are encouraging showing improvement over the users’ awareness of their personal data and the perceived usefulness of the tool.
