Personal privacy is becoming more and more difficult to maintain due to an ongoing increment of mobile devices surrounding us and pervasive applications managing our personal information. The development of privacy-enhancing technologies is crucial to assure the peace of mind of the user even for a gesture as simple as sharing a mobile device with someone. The present research in progress provides an initial category of the characteristics that a privacy-enhancing technology requires with special attention to the continuity aspect. A concrete novel technology, Touch-and-Play has been evaluated as a potential solution to supply the requirement of such characteristic.
