What i have here today is a generic brand fingerprint reader named Secureye.
Build wise it’s ok, made completely of plastic, it has a USB connector on one side and a fingerprintreader on the other.
This fingerprint reader is quite small, meaning you can plug it into a port on your laptopand leave it there, just be careful on how you place it in your bag, as the reader canbend, breaking it or damage your usb port.
I place the laptop with the fingerprint reader on top.
The fingerprint reader supporting windows hello, just Plug it in, windows finds it,installs drivers, and it's ready to use, no drivers needed to be installed manually.
Now that it’s installed, we need to setup a fingerprint.
Tap the windows key, type in fingerprint.
You should find setup fingerprint sign-in.
Open the settings page, by clicking on it.
A new option is now visible named fingerprint.
Click on setup, enter your current pin, which then would open up the fingerprint setup page.
Tap the sensor multiple times, that is lift and tap, lift and tap, the reader saves yourfingerprint on the computer.
You will need to do this 5-10 times.
Then you need to change the angle and tap the sensor again, this helps the sensor readyour fingerprint, whichever angle you touch it at.
Now we’re all set.
Lets see how it works.
There it’s that simple, one tap and the laptop unlocks.
Wow, thats fast.
The fingerprint reader works with any windows system, so you are not limited to a laptop,but can also use it with a desktop.
I would totally recommend this for people who use their laptops in public and don'twant others peeping in on your pin or password, and anyone can enter your pin or password,but only you can use unlock via your fingerprint.
But do note this convenience does cost.
