• Usable Privacy & Security @ Berkeley

    Many of the privacy and security problems that we see today come from a failure to account for human factors. The Berkeley Laboratory for Usable and Experimental Security (BLUES) takes a human-centric perspective to performing research on computer security and online privacy. Our approach to privacy and security research involves using methods from human-computer interaction (HCI) to better understand why people behave the way they do, so that we can account for human behavior when designing improved systems.
