It does have it's faults though:
No firefox support (There should be since firefox no has 18% of the browser market)
It tends to get dirty easily due to the rubber coating on the glass and is difficult to clean with regular cloths, my suggestion would be cleaning it with a lint free cloth soaked in some water, this ensure the glass doesnt get scratched or too dirty to scan your fingerprint
There should be a unauthorized logon attempt log, if a user were to try and logon with an unauthorized fingerprint the computer shiuld lock and be unable to operate unless an authorized user unlocks it
Despite the few bad points this is a great product, well recomended for the geek in all of us :)
the technology itself is quite amazing , being that it now sits in the hands, or fingers, and gives them a bit more security without having to remember passwords. Set it up once, and the rest is at your fingertips.
Sadly, the device only works for those running Microsoft Windows XP and Internet Explorer (fully functionality), whilst it does have functionality with other web browsing applications it is fairly limited in what it can do.
With that said, it can store username and passwords for alternative login screens like Steam Counterstrike or MSN Messenger but you may find problems when attempting this proceedure such as duplicate popup's asking for a password entry.
The convenience of this product is outstanding, and makes things a lot more enjoyable without having to remember the tons of passwords we have in our lives today. Not once did the product ever have problems reading our fingerprints, either. We have several other people try their fingerprints, who did not have their finger prints scanned and found no problems in security issues for the computer. In the long run, the device works perfect
