Abstract [en]

The Android OS is ever growing on the global market, reaching more and more people. This have led to the distribution of millions of applications, that the Android user can interact with. However, the usage of Android apps is not risk free and there are various methods deployed by Google Play to protect the privacy of the Android owner. One of these protective measures are permissions. However, as permissions are controlled by the user, there is a need of comprehending the user behaviour and attitude to the permissions. Lack of understanding the importance, and of the permission itself, could present a real danger of privacy trespassing to the user. In this paper we evaluate the rate of attitude and behaviour by questionnaire and empirical quality-driven interviews. We compare and scrutinize our data with older studies. We identify factors contributing the failure to comply with permission warnings. Also, we find that there are connections between factors such as gender and age, for how the user behaviour and attitude conclude with permissions. In the end we present an exhaustive analysis and discussion to our results, ending with a conclusion that there are differences to be found from older studies and that there are connections in gender and age with how the user acts by permissions.
