Behavioural biometrics are becoming more and more popular. It is hard to find a sensor that is embedded in a mobile/wearable device, which can’t be exploited to extract behavioural biometric data. In this paper, we investigate data in behavioural biometrics and how this data is used in experiments, especially examining papers that introduce new datasets. We will not examine performance accomplished by the algorithms used since a system’s performance is enormously affected by the data used, its amount and quality. Altogether, 32 papers are examined, assessing how often they are cited, have databases published, what modality data are collected, and how the data is used. We offer a roadmap that should be taken into account when designing behavioural data collection and using collected data. We further look at the General Data Protection Regulation, and its significance to the scientific research in the field of biometrics. It is possible to conclude that there is a need for publicly available datasets with comprehensive experimental protocols, similarly established in facial recognition.
