Provide an escape

Provide users with a way to quickly exit or hide visible information when using the product or service.

Further description

Keep users safe

It could be unsafe for people to be seen using your service by others, for example, if they are in an abusive environment.

Protect privacy

Young people may not have a private space to use your product or service in and may not want others to know what they are doing.

Be consistent

Putting a clearly visible link or button in the same place on every page will help users exit quickly if they need to.


Share your patterns

We’re constantly on the look out for new patterns. If you have a service/product which you think could be used as a new pattern, we’d love to hear about it.
