With Windows 10, Microsoft introduced a secure login system – Windows Hello. The system allowed users to login into their devices using an iris scanner, fingerprint reader or facial recognition. The only way to use this feature was to buy a latest Windows PC or Windows smartphone that was already equipped with the hardware. This changes with the recent announcement. Now, any user can add Windows Hello compatibility to any Windows 10 PC by simply purchasing a small accessory – BIO-key’s Windows Hello fingerprint accessories.
