Kat Krol is a Secure Usability Senior Fellow.

During her fellowship, she will be focusing on tools for secure instant messaging looking at their usability and adoption. There is so much technically excellent encryption software out there, that has not been widely adopted due to poor usability and/or a mismatch between what the technology offers and what the users need. Her first steps will be conducting focus groups with users of selected messaging apps to learn about their perspective.
