Figure: The Best Response
  • Citizen: chooses not to install the app with probability 1 when they have engaged in risky behavior and use the same signal when they have engaged in “safe” behavior.
  • Local Administration: if they see the app installed, they believe the type of individual they are interacting with is risky but are not sure and choose to “test” with probability 1.
  • Local Administration: if they don’t see the app installed, then they are half sure that they might be interacting with a safe individual and choose “no test” with probability 1.
