This paper is focused on the user acceptance of biometric recognition, specifically on fingerprint. Usually, when designing and developing technological products, key factors related to usability are not properly driven involving missuses or technology rejection. User acceptance, which is linked somehow or other to usability is one of those key factors when designing biometrics systems. The scarce number of works in this line encouraged us to carry on a study of user acceptance in fingerprint recognition. For this research more than 600 users have used 3 planar semiconductor fingerprint sensors and fulfilled 2 surveys (previously and after) where they were asked about several aspects regarding biometrics in general and fingerprint recognition in particular. Our results include how user's opinion changes when interacting with biometrics and what are the ergonomic preferences, among other findings.
