Following the exciting first reactions, Google Glass has encountered seriously criticism, due to the perceived threats to security and privacy. Cyber security is one of the most serious threats, both to private users and business enterprises. At present, Google Glass makes it easy for cyber hackers to gain access to our personal data, banking and credit card details, passwords or personal identification numbers. After conducting literature review and simple questionnaire survey in which 35 Glass owners and 30 privacy managers from the US took part, we analyzed the collected data to point out the weakness of the device. The response rate visibly showed problem of user privacy in design of product (16.7% satisfaction on design to protect privacy). Based on these analyses, we proposed 6 essential improvements to Glass security and privacy by redesigning the features that currently pose a threat to privacy of Google Glass users and other party involved. We can thus view Google Glass as an opportunity to draw attention to modern privacy concepts. It is likely that, given that the risks associated with Google Glass are being widely discussed, the threats have been around for much longer.
