Abstract:With the coming of new technologies like biometrics, both public and private institutes are more than ever capable of invigilating citizens wherever they go. As a result, both negative and positive societal examples of the utilization of biometrics can be found across the globe. These examples influence the perception of citizens on biometrics technology, which leaves some citizens fearful of a future society where biometrics is a large part of their daily lives. However, in order for governments and companies to properly make use of biometrics in the future, citizen perceptions on biometrics acceptance have to be taken into account. In earlier research, it was found that biometrics acceptance among citizens was related to the extent of informedness and the degree of privacy concerns of citizens. Therefore, this study aims to investigate to what extent biometrics acceptance among citizens is related to biometrics informedness and biometrics privacy concerns
