This session aims to create a working group for improving the user experience of cookie consent popups. In Europe, the use of cookies was first regulated by the Privacy and Electronic Communications Directive 2002/58/EC, then revised by a 2009 amendment, and more recently by the GDPR. Cookie popups and the mechanism for providing consent can be tedious. Browsing the same website from different devices results in consent being asked again. A bad usability can lead users to give their consent without the necessary attention. In this session we will discuss the state of things and look at possible solutions. We will target a multidisciplinary audience of internet users, usability experts, browser developers, lawyers, and online advertisement professionals.

This is a Learning Forum session.
