Talking with journalists, researchers, and activists we formulated core principles as a decision-making basis to enable our users to record anonymized:
🐰 capturing needs to be fast
the safest option is the default one
🟡 color indicates safety
Introducing a landscape mode that is crucial to a journalists workflow.
Creating a feeling of trust & safety towards 'anonymous camera' was a crucial part of the experience and it was one of my main responsibilities in this project.
One source of inspiration was the airplane safety pamphlet. We created a virtual safety & privacy card, that users can always refer back to explain everything we do – or don't do – with their data.
