dc.description.abstract Activity trackers such as FitBit and Apple Watch have become popular for collecting fitness and health data. Few studies have examined privacy concerns and risks regarding the use of activity trackers and the sharing of personal fitness information (PFI). This study presents findings from a survey of activity tracker users (n = 325) to explore the privacy concerns, perceptions, and habits of users. Findings indicate that several factors impact the PFI data sharing habits of users, including understanding privacy policies, understanding device privacy settings, and the level of value placed on PFI. Further, knowledge of privacy policies and settings had a clear impact on perceptions of the sensitivity and value of PFI. en_US
