As trust and security are key for the sustainability of sharing economy, it is important to detect deceptive information and screen out suspicious users. This study aims to design a new paradigm to identify deceptive information based on eye movement and mouse trajectory. A collaborative travelling experiment environment is developed to collect data. By tracking and analyzing abnormal user reactions and the consistency between eye movement and mouse trajectory, this research-in-progress work expects to distinguish lie-telling users from honest ones. Our design is expected to improve the efficiency to detect deceptive information and identify suspicious users.
