Abstract

Smartphones are increasingly recognized as the most popular computing platform, forming an integral part of the way users interact with the online world. Accompanied with the advent of user-installed content, End User License Agreements have surfaced mirroring issues previously arising on more traditional platforms. This survey conducted in Perth, Western Australia looked at user behavior when viewing and accepting EULAs on smartphone devices. The results show that a majority of users do not read such agreements citing issues of readability and length.
