1. Please help us out (Paid user study!)

Android study (you need an Android phone to participate)
We are looking for people willing to participate in surveys and
studies relating to Android phones. You need an Android phone to
participate. If you have an Android phone and is interested in
participating, please read on.
Our studies require that you are willing to download a piece of code
that logs call data and location data on your phone. The code will be
uninstalled at the end of the study, or at any time before, should you
decide to opt out from the study before it has concluded. The only
functionality of the code will be to record, anonymize and submit
usage data from your phone. All data will be anonymized before being
submitted to our server, and you will be able to inspect all logs
before they are submitted. No sensitive data will be exported. We will
never publish your data, but will only publish aggregate data (such as
general patterns of usage for all participants.)
The data will be used in a research study at Palo Alto Research Center
( to improve cell phone security. The study will last for
approximately one month. The researcher in charge of the study is
Markus Jakobsson,, whom you may contact if
you have any questions.
The only goal of this particular task is to determine who is willing
to participate once the main study has been approved by the Internal
Review Board, and to establish what compensation is appropriate. To
participate, you need to:
1. Have an Android phone, which you regularly use.
2. Install our software on it, which logs, anonymizes and submits
usage data to our server. We will offer guarantees as to its behavior
and functionality, so you will not have to be concerned about crashes
or malicious behavior. You do not need to be a technical wiz to
install our software; it will be straightforward.
3. Allow your phone to submit logs. You can set this to be done
automatically using a simple configuration, or you can set it to
require you first to review records. There is no other configuration
4. Uninstall the logging software at the end of the study. You may do
this prior to the end of the study if you choose to.

If you are interested in participating (this is not a commitment on
your behalf) then please indicate what compensation you feel is
[ ]     $1
[ ]     $5
[ ]     $10
[ ]     $15
[ ]     $50
Please note that we are not committing to offering you this
compensation. All participants will be offered the same compensation,
but we may select participants based on their required compensation.
We may contact you using the anonymous email feature within some week
to follow up with you. Please look out for our email!
