Software packages & fingerprint reader hardware

Fingerprint recognition has been around for quite a while and is used for many different reasons, but security and identity confirmation is the technology’s main purpose. Using biometric systems such as fingerprint readers can greatly increase the security of your electronic devices including your personal computer, company computers, EPOS systems and the priceless data on your devices. Laptops often come with built-in fingerprint readers so that users can make their data more secure, but not all of them. If you are concerned about the security of your computer, a fingerprint reader may provide the secure, convenient protection you need.

Non-obtrusive or ‘Big Brother’

Contrary to popular belief, when registering an individual with the fingerprint reader, it does NOT take a scan of their fingerprint. It looks for specific points within the fingerprint and then just saves the coordinates of these points. This data is immediately encrypted and will only make sense to the fingerprint software. So you can be rest assured that your fingerprint hasn’t literally been taken and stored.
