Title: Protection Motivation Theory and Smartphone Security Behaviour: A qualitative investigation
Author: Mason, Holly
Issue Date: 2019
School/Discipline: School of Psychology
Abstract: This review provides an initial assessment of the literature on smartphone reliance and the lack of good security behaviours displayed on smartphones within the general population. Protection Motivation Theory (PMT) is commonly used within information security contexts to investigate why someone might chose to engage in risky smartphone behaviour. There is theoretical support for PMT within both organisational and home settings. However, there is a lack of research within the PMT and smartphone context; therefore, an empirical investigation is warranted. Given the findings of this review, future research should examine user behaviour on smartphones across contexts.
