Personal Data Stores (PDS) are considered by a growing number of actors to be the solution to the issue of online privacy. The PDS promise is that people can choose to share or restrict access to specific personal information with other interested parties. Ascertaining the extent to which users are willing to adopt PDS was the objective of a small-scale test involving job applicants and employers. After describing the context leading to the PDS solution developed within the European Framework 7 project TAS3, this paper explores whether PDS are a practical solution to addressing personal data insecurity on the web. Can PDSs respond to actual user needs? Are users ready to adopt PDS technology to &#x2018;claim data back&#x2019;? To what extent can PDS really enforce online privacy? What other approaches are emerging as alternatives to PDS?
