Well researched independent thesis. Highly recommended reading for anyone practicing UX design. (Learn these evil practices so you can avoid them)

TIL: there is a "dark UX pattern" called "Privacy Zuckering" defined as: "You are tricked into publicly sharing more information about yourself than you really intended to."

Fantastic read. Thank you for the share.
