In recent years, “digital signage” has been used for large screen displays in public spaces, such as stations or shopping malls. Some display terminals have used digital signage to dispatch information in an interactive format; thus, a user touches an electronic screen to obtain information, such as a map, store location, or advertisement, and receives it freely. Public systems commonly adopt user interfaces with touch panels on display terminals to facilitate interactive information exchange.

On the other hand, the popularity of personal computers and the explosive growth of the Internet now make it possible for users to handle a wide variety of information—regardless of location or time of day. Furthermore, users communicate not only information that may be seen by others but sometimes information not intended to be seen by others. In other words, even information of a highly confidential nature can be accessed anywhere and anytime. The information dissemination which cared about this point is desirable.

In this research, therefore, we will study information security and privacy as it pertains to large touch screens in public places. The goal of this research is to identify the variables associated with user safety when interfacing on large touch screens in public venues; additionally, we will propose a method for designing public space so that users can communicate interactively with reassurance of confidentiality.
