Abstract

This paper looks at using a space-filling hierarchy view to control and visualize security settings on a mobile device. The view is optimized for readability and navigation with limited display space and provides a more fluid user-experience with a color-coded overview of security risks and buttons to fine tune security settings included in the same interface. The technique is compared with more traditional table and tree views in a user study where the users express a clear preference for the space-filling hierarchy view feeling. They felt that this view made for a more convenient and accessible user experience. This demonstrates the promise of information visualization to improve security interfaces for mobile devices and help solve an important problem for the future of multi-device multi-user interface development for the internet-of-things.
