We have a developed a simple research application to collect data on the people’s feelings of securityin real timeacross various days and time of day. This is done viaa mobile application that participants will download from the app store. Participants are prompted viarandomized pop-up notifications to complete the survey. To increase participation, we have kept the survey simple,and the completion time is three seconds.
To begin the survey the participant will enter simple demographic information. Currently, we capture age, gender, and theirhomezipcode. We also capture the date, timestamp, and geolocation of the responses to find patternsbetweenfeelings of security with locations,time of day, and days of the week.
We take security and privacy very seriously. Survey participants will download the mobile application from the App Store or Google Play onto their personal devices. We do not ask for any permissions to access contacts, photos, or the contents of their phones. We ask for an email address to set up the surveyand use that to ensure that participants can only sign up one time. We also use their email address and device id to create a unique id. Participants email addressesand device idsare encrypted in our database so that no onehasaccess to any personally identifying information.
