Rewrite the home pages of the Unsafe Browser
During the usability tests in August, all participants (except P2) had serious troubles using the Unsafe Browser to connect to a captive portal.
The idea is to have 2 different home pages for the Unsafe Browser:
Captive Portal version: One if we're not connected to Tor already. It should be focused on captive portals.
Dangerous Browsing version: One if we're connected to Tor already. It should be focused on the danger of the Unsafe Browser
P1: That’s creepy, no? P2: SecureDrop is a captive portal?!
Rewrite the Captive Portal version
Give examples of innocent pages from Unsafe Browser warning page
- P1 thought that captive portal meant login and password and so that it makes it more secure
Rewrite the Dangerous Browsing version
Draw an illustration for the Dangerous Browsing version
Draw an illustration for the Captive Portal version
To explain what is a captive portal (the context of a train station or airport sounds good) and maybe give hints that people have to use it to visit an innocent-looking website (and not their whistle-blowing platform like one participant did during the usability tests).
During the test people go confused by the login and password in the current drawing from Wikipedia:
So I think that we should try to have a example without login and password.
During the usability tests I used this one:
If it's easy, we might be able to expand the scope of the image from "showing a captive portal" to "how to use the Unsafe Browser to sign in to a network".
But it's probably too much for 1 drawing already and it won't save us from having to support better these complex interactions with code (and documentation) as well. So keep it simple.
