lazy? maybe

 

I didn't actually have a password on my windows account. I was actually hoping its programing would auto fill log ins for email and that sort of thing.

You can use any finger/thumb you want because you can program them all into it. You could probably use your toes if you wanted to. This fingerprint reader seems to work fine with Windows XP 32 and 64 bit. If you are having problems with it working on...

It is so little and light that the bends in the usb cord actually turn it on its side and face it away from the angle you would normally swipe your finger

Locked Up After Install

 

I installed this device on my computer and the system froze during reboot right before login. The same thing happened on another PC using a different reader so it wasn't just a bad reader. I tried a few different install methods; attached the reader...

Construction looks good ; Comes with two, different length USB cables

Failed to operate on two computers ; We tried two device and both failed identically ; Little to no support from IBM

Product Specifications

Your passwords at the tip of your fingers. The Lenovo USB Fingerprint Reader lets you gain access to confidential files with the swipe of a finger, rather than having to remember and type in different passwords for many applications. The Fingerprint Reader is small, so is ideal for travel and for using on your limited desk space. With this biometric solution to authentication you can choose to have the convenience of simple fingerprint authentication only, or configure for one of the most secure log-in processes available. This additional security is achieved when the Fingerprint Reader is used in conjunction with the embedded security chip and ThinkVantage Client Security Solution software, available on select models of ThinkCentre desktops and ThinkPad notebooks, configuring to require both fingerprint and password authentication. When active, the embedded security chip requires the user to type in a passphrase once per boot up, even if the system is configured for fingerprint authentication only. Non-embedded security chip models can be configured for fingerprint only authentication that does not also require typing in a passphrase. This configuration offers convenience, but security is not significantly better than using typed passwords only.
