Information Privacy Concerns: a Review of Research Issues and Conceptual Models

Advancing information technology has benefited the global economy in many ways. However, at the same time, it has also increased people’s privacy concerns. The objective of this paper is to summarize what have been done in the literature on information privacy concerns and present directions for future research. We investigate the theoretical meaning of information privacy and present research frameworks for information privacy concerns. We also explore the relationship between privacy concerns and interface design, and multimedia privacy.
