Here’s how you can add a Windows 10 Hello compatible fingerprint reader to just about any Windows 10 PC for just $35.

Security of our computers is something that unfortunately far too many people take for granted or simply do not consider at all.

It’s something that the likes of Apple are aware of, and because users simply do not use secure passwords, or often do not use passwords of any description, it added Touch ID support to its high-end MacBook Pros. We already have fingerprint technology on our smartphones and tablets, depending on which you buy, so really it stands to reason that such technology would also be available on computers. That’s where the likes of AuthenTrend comes in.

The AuthenTrend Nano is a simple USB dongle that is a Windows Hello-compatible fingerprint sensor, too. When plugged into a Windows 10 PC, it allows users to lock down their Windows computers, documents, files and data with a registered fingerprint required in order for everything to be accessed.

This biometric finger reader is equipped with the latest scanning technology that uses an algorithm to track your fingerprint analysis and process it faster and faster every time you log-in.

After a few times, the whole sign-in process will become almost instant!

Plus, you don’t have to worry about which finger to use or from what angle you scan it, since this compact fingerprint reader integrates a 360 degrees feature for your convenience.

The AuthenTrend solution is an inexpensive one, too, costing just $34.99 from Amazon right now. There are of course alternatives to the AuthenTrend sensor, but if it works even half as well as the aforementioned demonstrations shows it does, then this could be an excellent solution for those who want fingerprint authentication on their Windows 10 computer.
