Security and convenience are two terms that rarely go together. Generally, more security means less convenience. However, in the Thumbprint Security USB Reader, you can find both security and convenience. This little fingerprint reader may not be suited to large, professional network security, but its features are well-suited to individual users. If you bought a laptop that does not have a built-in fingerprint reader, then the Thumbprint Security USB Reader will add that extra layer of security that only a biometric system can offer.
The Thumbprint Security USB Reader is small enough to fit in your pocket, so you can take it with you wherever you go. The only consideration you may have is whether the device will be compatible with the computer you want to use. This fingerprint reader works with any computer that has a USB port and runs Windows XP, Vista, 7 or 8. These operating systems include around 90 percent of computers, so you won't have to worry much about whether the fingerprint reader will work.
The scanner produces a high-quality image of your fingerprint. With a resolution of 508 dots per inch (dpi), the Thumbprint Security USB Reader's fingerprint images provide enough detail for the biometric system to identify your fingerprint as unique and lock out any unregistered fingerprints. Just make sure that you keep the fingerprint scanner clean, as a dirty scanner can lead to failed attempts to access your computer or a blurry image of your fingerprint.
If you are worried about the fingerprint reader breaking because you'll take it with you everywhere you go, the one-year warranty should grant you some relief. The reader comes with two USB cables and some proprietary software. The software enables you to lock your computer and many applications on your computer with your fingerprint
The small size and extremely light weight of the Thumbprint Security USB Reader provides you with a portable biometric security solution. If you travel often or simply wish to increase the level of security on your computer and protect the important information in specific applications, this fingerprint reader will do the job well.
