Internet security gets its own smell
Security is an ever-present concern on the Internet. We have seen a number of apps and devices that address the need to keep data secure, from an app to secure information storage to an earphone that can prevent leaks of confidential information. But no one has yet suggested warning people of possible data breaches with smell – until now. Just as in the 1930s, a pungent smell (mercaptan) was added to natural gas to warn people of leaks, a cultural researcher has now devised a project that uses smell to warn of potential data leaks.
