HP’s DigitalPersona Fingerprint Reader Software provides an enhanced data protection layer to your system, using biometrics rather than generic passwords alone.
DigitalPersona Fingerprint Reader Software has been specifically designed for notebooks or laptops, and gives you an additional layer of security on top of your standard security protocols in place on your system.
Upon installation the app runs a 'Getting Started' wizard that walks you through the necessary steps to set up the fingerprint reader and your login account details. Additionally, each time you open it, the software will verify your identity with an enrolled fingerprint or with the previously selected logon password.
DigitalPersona Fingerprint Reader Software strengthens your PC security using fingerprint authentication, and it provides a reliable communication method between the PC hardware and reader device.
DigitalPersona Fingerprint Reader Software not only provides you with biometric tools, it also comes with a password manager, which can protect access to specific websites and apps. With the password manager you can add multiple online accounts, which you can later access using your fingerprint. User names and passwords can be organized in categories and online accounts can be imported or exported, edited and removed using the ‘Manage' tab.
The app also comes with a 'Security Check' section that lets you view the overall security status and also verify the password strength for each of your online accounts. You can set up shortcut keys for quick actions as well, such as enabling the fingerprint reader, or adjusting the recognition sensitivity. From here, you can also customize the user profile name, picture and change the login password.
Overall, DigitalPersona Fingerprint Reader Software is a great tool to have if you want to add another level of security to your system. With it, you can protect access to e-mail accounts, online banking, and your personal files.
