Research output: PatentPatent application


Systems and methods are provided for context-module-based personal data protection. Systems and methods provide a user device's user interface with two or more context modules associated with a respective set of applications. Upon receiving a user input to launch an application, the application is executed using data permissions associated with the context from which the user launches the application. Permission for application requests for data are determined based on the data permissions associated with the launch context. For some embodiments, the context may be selected automatically based on sensor data or a user device's context or location. For some embodiments, the context may be changed between two contexts. Such context changes may occur without changing user accounts. For some embodiments, a third user may execute a third application using the data permissions associated with the first context module.
