Privacy-related concepts are often abstract and difficult to define. Comics can be an effective visual storytelling medium for raising awareness about privacy. However, existing privacy and security educational comics do not support content creation. To address this, we developed PrivacyToon, a comic-based authoring tool with creativity support that enables users to create customizable privacy-related visual content. Our exploratory user study with 23 students and teachers shows PrivacyToon’s potential as a creative tool for communicating about privacy concepts and stories. Our results show a wide range of creativity preferences and contexts need to be taken into account when designing systems that integrate ideation card-based design processes. Additionally, we contribute a preliminary list of design dimensions in privacy comics through qualitative analysis of comics created through our user study.
