Headspace's Privacy Review
For most, smartphones have become an essential extension of the human body—we don't go anywhere without one. They give us the ability to communicate, navigate, and evaluate anything we want in an instant. But when you rely on any one thing too much, it becomes potent.
Reports bring to light the impact smartphones can have on our health: stress, addiction, and distraction. Smartphones are not the sole cause of these things, but they can contribute to it. Some people attempt a detox, go gray, or get rid of their phone altogether. But there is another solution, and ironically it is delivered right through your smartphone. It's called Headspace.
Why this is really good UX:
- The consent flow uses progressive disclosure—one question per screen—to help maintain the user's attention by reducing clutter, confusion, and cognitive workload. And like any good design, the interface provides feedback on where the user is (location) and what's to come (future status) with the progress indicator at the top.
- Headspace conserves their brand image throughout the flow with UX writing and their trademark illustrations. References to meditation are made with phrases like “peace of mind,” the copy is to the point, the CTAs are unambiguous for clarity, and the graphics provide supporting visuals to the copy for a well-rounded experience.
