This paper deals with the question which factors have an influence on citizens’ attitudes towards surveillance-oriented security technologies and their privacy implications. Based on data gathered in a pan-European survey, we discuss which factors determine citizens’ perceptions in concrete surveillance practices. We argue that the perceived usefulness of the security practices and the trust in those actors that are promoting and operating security systems are paramount for citizens’ acceptance. In addition, individual factors and experiences play an important role for the assessment.
