CPRC provides an insight into the types of online dark patterns that exist for consumers and the harms these deceptive designs can cause.
About this event
What are dark patterns and how do they harm consumers?
Consumers are being manipulated by how information and choices are displayed on websites and apps to deliberately influence their behaviour. These designs are dark patterns. They are used to steer choices in ways that benefit businesses but can leave consumers worse off.
This CPRC webinar provides an insight into the types of dark patterns being used in Australia and the harms these deceptive designs can cause.
CPRC will share its latest consumer research on the prevalence and impact of dark patterns on Australian consumers and what businesses and governments can do to create a fair, safe and inclusive experience for Australian consumers in the digital economy.
Finn Myrstad, Head of Digital Services Section at the Norwegian Consumer Council and world-leading expert in dark patterns, will join CPRC in a conversation to share how dark patterns are being addressed internationally. Finn was instrumental in bringing this concept to light in the European Union and will highlight what Australia can learn from international action and response .
Panel: Erin Turner – CEO, Consumer Policy Research Centre, Chandni Gupta – Policy and Program Director (Consumers in a Digital World), Consumer Policy Research Centre and Finn Lützow-Holm Myrstad – Director, Digital Policy at the Norwegian Consumer Council
