This document pertains to HP Notebook PCs with HP SimplePass Fingerprint Reader.
A fingerprint reader is a security device that uses a scanned image of your fingerprint to authenticate who you are. With fingerprint security software you can log on to applications and secure web sites by scanning your fingerprint instead of typing your Username and password on the keyboard.
note:If your computer model uses HP SimplePass 2011 version 5.x or later by AuthenTech, see Setup and Use the SimplePass 2011 Fingerprint Reader.
To use a fingerprint reader, there must be at least one Windows User account, and that account should require a password to log on to Windows. You can register a new fingerprint or web site at any time.
