Zusammenfassung Location-based applications offer various benefits to users, but at the cost of putting oneís privacy at risk. When deciding on whether to use these applications or not, the user has to perform a risk-benefit analysis based on the available knowledge on the appsí information privacy practices. Users can take some measures to protect themselves from the risks, but concern might also discourage adoption of location-based technologies. In this paper, we show that perceived risks dictate the usage of location-based applications. Perceived benefits seem to influence how often location-based applications are installed, but not how often they are used. According to our results, awareness of such applicationsí information privacy practices has an influence on whether or not the user installs these applications, but does not influence their usage. We also show that users with high privacy concern are less likely to install location-based applications than others; however, privacy concern was not found to correlate with use of location-based applications, or with protective behavior.
