Early Adopters

Key findings

Interface and Interaction

  • Notifications should not be overwhelming when letting the user know what is going on
  • Managing files and structure is essential to the user
  • Syncing via cloud services and sending messages notifications are very important

Data and security

  • Single Sign-On is a good thing but how to manage it and be secure is not a simple thing
  • Desktop torrent use in the past was widespread, but in general, P2P is not used anymore
  • File security and backup is paramount, but it is less important who has the final file
  • Cloud services like Google products are easy to use but not trusted
  • Identity management is difficult even for advanced users
  • Privacy and security is crucial but how to manage it is challenging, varied and often put off till later
