Abstract:Virtual Reality (VR) is projected to grow into a $100B industry in the next five years. While a preliminary body of research has begun to explore security vulnerabilities and privacy threats in VR, little prior work has explored how users of VR systems perceive these threats or how developers are coping with them. By understanding users' and developers' perceptions early in the VR adoption life-cycle, we have a unique opportunity to inform the development of policies, educational materials, and corporate best-practices to ensure the protection of VR users. In this poster, we present preliminary findings from semi-structured interviews with home VR users focused on their use of VR, their awareness of data collection and privacy/security threats, and potential tensions between users' and developers' understandings and mitigations of these threats.
