Introduction of Fingerprint Sensor
Biometric authentication now is frequently used to manage access control to protect personal data and speed up the login process. Though password system is still a standard in current access process, people always suffer from remembering complex password, then forget them again and again. In addition, password-based system may bring greater risk to users and the personal data becomes more vulnerable.
Fingerprint sensor is one of the methods that based on patterns of human finger which is unique among each person. It offers secure and faster login method through Windows Hello, and could even go through other online access system through FIDO2, and now is commonly applied in laptops.

Ditch that Windows 10 password and log in with biometrics like your face or fingerprint via Windows Hello.

Our fingerprint is our password.
Enabled with Windows Hello, it’s the fastest, most secure way to sign in to Windows 10 devices without a password.

The fingerprint will be more convenient when we need to wear a facial mask.
