Highlights

  • Technologies like augmented reality, virtual reality capture users’ biometric data, or facial gestures that may be misused if not adequately protected. Therefore, user privacy protection in the metaverse becomes critical.
  • Privacy risks multiply when legal and intellectual property issues are not effectively mitigated. It will be necessary to review the licensing agreements of third-party service providers operating in the metaverse.
  • Advertisements in metaverse must be strictly regulated via a combination of technical and regulatory solutions like privacy-by-design, architectural security, and consent.
