Solutions Fluency Process:


What are the key words? Legal responsibilities, social networks + platforms

What exactly needs to be solved? The problem of people having access to people’s passwords, and private/personal information. The issue of people being hacked or scammed regularly due to not enough cyber security.

What needs to be changed? Less people being scammed by hackers, to upgrade cyber security and change the issue that is faced everyday to people all around the world due to the lack of security on people’s personal information

How does this problem affect people in the community? This affects people as they are being scammed or hacked, because people’s passwords are at easy access due to the issue of social networks and platforms lacking good security measures.

What is the context? People getting the information stolen and hacked in to from bad websites, or social media platforms. That has lacked the legal responsibilities that should be protected for society’s safety.

What are the different components of this problem? Peoples information being hacked and used incorrectly, People being hacked or scammed, Older people being ‘tricked’ into giving money away to scammers and People being ‘gullible’ to randoms scams

Explain the problem in your own words. The problem is that people are being hacked and scammed due to the issue that social media platforms lack privacy safety. And the legal responsibility is to protect society from the issues such as people being hacked and or scammed.


Investigating and Researching:

Research, gather and analyse as much knowledge and information about the problem as you can. Develop relevant content topics to reach the company’s target customers. Create, curate, and manage all published content, Monitor, listen and respond to users in a “Social” way while cultivating leads and sales.

Consult your parents and any experts you know. Monitor the activity of the user and how they want their privacy to be kept

What is causing the problem? Inexperienced users of the internet (Often older people)

Why do we need to solve it? Produce a browser extension or application which cross checks your passwords with dodgy websites

Have others tried to solve it? How? Yeah, google have released a browser extension that protects your security by automatically generating randomised passwords and saving them in your browser.

How is this solved in different countries? Some countries such as South Korea and China only allow certain websites to be accessed and certain area of interest to be viewed

Can we combine or improve existing solutions? We can branch of the concept of google password protection and expand the browser extension so that we can browse the internet


Creating a solution phase:

How will you create a solution?  We will create a solution by creating an app that will be able to block websites from stealing information, and also help protect society from getting their information leaked or stolen from hackers online. E.g. Bank account details.

What is your solution? How will it work? A browser extension or an app where you put in all of your passwords and private information to be cross checked before you enter information into something. If the website or user is ‘unsafe’ then it wont let you enter in the words that you put into the browser extension.

Why will it work? It will work because it will protect people from hackers and people stealing others information. It will also work because it will help with people’s safety and allow people to be less ‘scared’ of the information being leaked or used.

How can you test this solution? We can find a website that is notorious for stealing people’s information and then run fake information through the app/ web extension and see if it picks up on the information thief.

Can you re-design and make it better? Our solution can’t be improved and we are satisfied with what we have come up with ect. Produced.


Our solution involves a browser extension in conjunction with an application that is used to manage and protect your information. Just like google passwords you put all your information in and it automatically fills your information into your selected website. The difference is that our browser extension cross checks websites to make sure they are not stealing your information.
