Related deceptive patterns
The trick wording deceptive pattern takes advantage of user expectations and ambiguous language to mislead and deceive users. It is normal for users to scan-read when they are online, as a way to cope with the sheer volume of information they are faced with. This means they don't read and dwell on every word on every page. Trick wording usually takes advantage of the scan reading strategy, by making a piece of content look like it is saying one thing, when in fact it is saying something else that is not in the user's best interests.
Forced action involves a provider offering users something they want - but requiring them to do something in return. It may be combined with other deceptive patterns like sneaking (so users don't notice it happening) or trick wording (to make the action seem more desirable than it is). Sometimes an optional action is presented as a forced action, through the use of visual interference or trick wording. In cookie consent interfaces, forced action is sometimes carried out through "bundled consent". This involves combining multiple agreements into a single action, and making it hard or impossible for a user to selectively grant consent.
