W3C Workshop Report: Permissions and User Consent

June 17th, 2019

This report contains a brief summary and collects highlights from the individual sessions, with links to the presentation slides. More detailed meeting minutes are also available. One of the take-aways was that some features may simply too dangerous even when gated behind permissions prompts – when we add new features to the web platform, we need to ask “should we do this (at all)”. Another outcome of the workshop was “Adding another permission? A guide”, a whitepaper for feature developers written Program Committee member Nick Doty based on the discussions at the workshop.

W3C thanks Qualcomm for hosting, the Program Committee for organizing, and all the participants for their contributions.
