If you are a user of this mentality then it will be quicker for you to use biometric login information. And if your computer is not accompanied by such a feature, you can use a usb fingerprint (usb fingerprint reader).
The usb fingerprint is tiny devices, lightweight and easy to carry. Since it resides in biometrics, they offer an extra level of security that simple codes just can not.
What do usb fingerprint readers do?
The fingerprint usb devices work with any USB port and are designed to unlock a computer. They logically work as plug-and-play devices, which are directly compatible with Windows 7 / 8 / 10. Kensington VeriMark and Benss Fingerprint Reader are two high-quality USB fingerprint readers that do not require external guides.
Additional features of these devices you can find and depending on the model you choose:
- 360-degree detection: allows you to connect from any angle you put your finger
- Support for ten fingerprints: if you work with Windows Hello or other similar systems, you should be able to register your ten fingers. This allows you to unlock the device with any finger you use.
- Compatible with Google, Facebook, Dropbox and Microsoft ID: with a good usb fingerprint device, you can access not only your computer but also many online services. In fact, these devices can serve as "tokens" to help you get rid of phone verification on Google.
To set up a USB fingerprint reader in Windows 7 / 8 / 10, you need to set up Windows Hello . To do this go to Settings> Accounts> Login Options. There you will find Windows Hello, which will automatically read the connected usb fingerprint and just follow its instructions to set it up.
Who does not need usb fingerprint reader?
If your computer already has a built-in fingerprint reader, then you do not need this gadget. You can check your device's compatibility online for all well-known brands. And then you can just set up the built-in scanner with Windows Hello.
Macbook Pro and Air users do not also need these scanners because they are touch ID on their computers. In fact, despite recent developments in face detection, Apple continues to support fingerprint access for its devices.
Who needs a usb fingerprint?
If you do not have a built-in fingerprint reader on your computer, then the logic for when you need a usb fingerprint follows the logic of which of your computers you have put a password on. If you have a computer that for your own reasons to log in you have to enter your password, then on this computer you can connect a usb fingerprint and avoid remembering the password.
