The phenomena of illegal disclosure of user privacy has become more serious considerably in the last years. How to protect user privacy and prevent user privacy from illegal disclosure has become of great interest to researchers. In this paper, we propose an approach of user privacy protection based on ontology inference. We create privacy ontology through detailed analysis of privacy domain. Then, we reason the privacy ontology with Semantic Web Rule Language (SWRL) rule of user privacy

By creating ontology and SWRL rules, then reasoning logically, we can find adequate service whose privacy policy coincides with user privacy preference and protect user privacy effectively.
