Great Idea, Poor Execution,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)

If only this device would reliably recognise fingerprints first time, every time it would be great.
I bought this for my elderly mother as she currently writes down her passwords to avoid forgetting them. I thought it would increase her security and prove easy to use for her. Perhaps it would - but although she could "enrol" her fingerprints easily (i.e. train the device to recognise them), in practical use her fingerprint was recognised only once in more than 100 attempts. She does have some calluses from housework, but really - this is mediocre.
However I was sufficiently impressed with the device not to send it back - I decided to use it myself. I get a much better success rate (as a much less "horny-handed" person) but still it usually takes two or three swipes to get my fingerprint recognised.
This device could be great if only the implementation were better....
