• Most of us are deeply entangled in digital infrastructures, with fragments of our personal data scattered across multiple platforms and across time by ourselves and others. • Linking these data fragments can produce a mosaic that affords significant and unintended insights to others – both human and AI. • HCI, UX, and UxD professionals have an opportunity to develop usable privacy-enhancing tools that nimbly assemble an individual’s mosaic of personal data across platforms and across time, and reflect it back to them so that they can understand and curate what they reveal of themselves, and to whom.
