    Bought this for a replacement of my microsoft reader which is now not compliant with Windows 7. Contact UPEK on there website for a discount code for there software you need to run the device. Running Protector Suite 2011 and love it. Easy to use. Once you plug the device into your computer drivers are loaded with no problems. Load software and never have to remember or enter a password again. Thanks Microsoft for making the device you made useless on your software. Aleast UPEK updates your software and there operators are in another country.

    I was searching high and low for a fingerprint reader of good quality for Windows 7 – and was amazed at how difficult it is to find a well-reviewed scanner. I honestly thought these things were pretty standard by now, but I guess it’s a niche market.

    For the price – it’s very well made and works quite well. For those using Windows 7 and above, Microsoft includes all the necessary biometrics software and integration to allow this scanner to log you into Windows. I couldn’t find it in control panel like one tutorial, but instead found the menu by going to Start Menu -> Devices and Printers -> (right click on the Fingerprint Sensor) and select Biometrics.

    It took about five minutes to scan all of my fingers. Remember to do long consistent sweeps across the sensor – short sweeps won’t gather enough data for a positive scan.

    So far, about 90% of my scans are confirmed – and I occasionally have to re-scan. Next, I’m going to use LastPass for password management, and use this fingerprint scanner to authorize LastPass to populate password fields. You do NOT need UPEK/Eikon’s software, it’s actually been found to store the passwords in plain-text (albeit scrambled) in the registry. People could easily retrieve your password because of this.

    Does exactly what I need! Glad I didn’t buy the ‘all metal’ scanner for twice the price.

    I’ll update this review if I encounter any problems later-on.

    Hail long passwords, December 9, 2012

    Long complex passwords are safest. So, why don’t we use them? Because we can’t remember them.

    ISSUE SOLVED. With a quick swipe of your finger – you can unlock your computer, open emails, secure websites, log in to access your bank and financial details or gain access to other personal data – without needing to remember, and key in a lengthy password.

    The Eikon scanner is fast and easy to configure. On my MacBook Pro it took just minutes. After a tweaking the settings to make sure I’d done everything correctly I configured finger-top access for my most sensitive banking data. After dozens of flawless finger-swipes – I implemented the hideously long passwords I’d always wanted. Yeah, they’re still stored securely off the computer, in case – but I don’t expect to need them.

    Not only do I love the Eikon finger-print – many security-conscious friends are getting one for Christmas.
