I Was Part of a Study for a Major Streaming Service

It is my dream to have a 'working relationship' with companies and tell them "This is great, I especially like x,y, and z." or "Err on the side of caution when doing this - It could be misinterpreted." 
So when a certain company said "Do that, for us, for a few days." I said "Happy to help."
"And we'll pay you!"
"Even happier to help!"
I will not give specifics on information gathered and shared beyond "habits", as I signed a contract.
And when I sign a contract, I consider this contract work. So I will absolutely drop in conversation, "Hey, I consulted for ... someone I can't say... for 🌟10 Days🌟!"

This is about my experience - And I'm happy to say it was pleasant.

The project-runners were clearly people who valued our insight.

Here's a story about them that has nothing to do with the study, but this post should be a little longer.

[Webinar] Security Awareness - Where Have We Gone Wrong?

What does it take for people to enjoy their online, digital experience without getting scammed?Hosted by Wizer's Chris Roberts, featuring Joanna Udo, Gabriel Friedlander, Ryan Cloutier, & Christopher Sant.*Security is daunting; Even I think so, and I work here. How do we get influencers to care, chefs, marketing professionals, anyone who isn't us? How can we make cybersecurity accessible and not daunting, because it affects everybody?
Let's hit on the big points (the giant headers, and the quotes from the panel follow. Quotes are slightly paraphrased. I'm working on the journalistic integrity to keep it short while not bastardizing the answer.)
