We are investigating the role of usability in everyday privacy, which signifies an individual's regular exposure to and control over the disclosure of personal information in ubiquitous computing environments. The near-continuous and sensitive nature of everyday privacy necessitates usable, consistent interaction mechanisms for managing it. Toward that end, we are designing and evaluating a user interface for managing everyday privacy in ubicomp. Our design is based on the notion that the identity of the information recipient is the primary determinant of the quality and quantity of personal information an individual prefers to disclose and, further, that an individual's disclosure preferences regarding a given recipient can vary by situation.
