Description

Mobile users still express their concerns about security of mobile applications because these applications have access to personal information stored on mobile devices. Mobile applications developers constantly provide new solutions to enhance security of mobile applications, but mobile users’ security concerns are not diminished as long as the associated behavioral factors are not understood and considered. Privacy is another users’ concern about mobile applications which mobile applications developers attempt to improve. In this study, we examine whether privacy-related factors can affect security perceptions about mobile applications. If privacy of mobile applications affect security, developers can devise the solutions to decrease these two significant concerns simultaneously and IS researchers better understand such interplay.

Mobile Applications Security: Role of Privacy

Mobile users still express their concerns about security of mobile applications because these applications have access to personal information stored on mobile devices. Mobile applications developers constantly provide new solutions to enhance security of mobile applications, but mobile users’ security concerns are not diminished as long as the associated behavioral factors are not understood and considered. Privacy is another users’ concern about mobile applications which mobile applications developers attempt to improve. In this study, we examine whether privacy-related factors can affect security perceptions about mobile applications. If privacy of mobile applications affect security, developers can devise the solutions to decrease these two significant concerns simultaneously and IS researchers better understand such interplay.
