Title: Exploring Defaults and Framing effects on Privacy Decision Making in Smarthomes

Research has shown that privacy decisions are affected by heuristic influences such as default settings and framing, and such effects are likely also present in smarthome privacy de- cisions. In this paper we pose the challenge question: How exactly do defaults and framing influence smarthome users’ privacy decisions? We conduct a large-scale scenario-based study with a mixed fractional factorial design, and use sta- tistical analysis and machine learning to investigate these effects. We discuss the implications of our findings for the designers of smarthome privacy-setting interfaces.
