In this paper, we present enhancements of the Privacy Badge, which is a privacy-awareness user interface for small devices with limited capabilities. The Privacy Badge was created to visualize privacy loss in ubiquitous and pervasive computing environments and to enable users to do privacy settings in an easy and understandable way. We introduce the service anticipation as a new feature and present enhancements of existing features. We evaluated the enhanced Privacy Badge with a user evaluation whose results approve the overall system as well as the modifications.
