Hello Dani Lu ! Happy to see your contribution to the Cybersecurity challenge. How would you consider pushing this idea further? We've had a large number of very interesting creations, have you had a chance to browse other submissions? There's a very interesting conversation around cybersecurity going on!

Hi Dima Boulad , thank you so much!
I was thinking of making the "spiderbots" even more realistic . Also making the message even more clear; that the terms and conditions we are consenting on, without ever really reading them, nor having much say on them, may come back and bite us! (For example: leaking some of our sensitive data and the company doing it, not be held responsible/ accountable for it) by making the phone screen appear bigger in the frame, change the composition/orientation of the phone so the writing is more easy to read, and making the image overall more aesthetically pleasing and appealing but still creepy and scary . Maybe changing the words "Terms&Services - updating" with just a symbol for downloading? ( I think that would make the message more broad, but maybe it would be a bad thing...)
Perhaps also make a GIF out of the image with the spiders approaching at a rapid pace?
Yes, I've seen quite a few creative and interesting ideas!
