We present a “privacy facts” label, which aims at helping non-experts understand how an Internet of Things (IoT) device collects and handles data. We describe our design methodology, and detail the results of our user study involving 31 participants, assessing the efficacy of the label. The results suggest that the label was perceived positively by the participants, and is a promising solution to help users in making informed decisions.
