Cross-device interaction often starts with a pairing step where devices are associated. Pairing that is based purely on physical proximity risks accidental or even hostile pairing when users are physically but not socially close. In this paper, we explore how data on a user's social circle can inform the pairing process. We propose three pairing modes that balance user control with ease of use and trigger them based on social and physical proximity of the devices and users involved.
