This study examines people’s perceptions of biometrics, in the context of the inherent privacy concerns surrounding behavioural biometrics as an alternative to conventional password systems. We present the knowledge and opinions of behavioural biometrics collected in this study. The main theme which is present throughout the research is that users have privacy concerns around behavioural biometrics, but that these concerns do not necessarily translate into privacy-conscious actions.
