Is there a way to set up a fingerprint reader for you password to log into windows.

I have windows XP Home with 4 user accounts and I would like to be able to use my fingerprint as a password instead of typing one in...

This way I don't care if someone knows my password they would have to chop my index off to get it though :thumbsup:

That would be cool, but wouldn't the hardware cost a bit much? What is your application that you need that level of security? I think some IBM business notebooks come equipped with that technology...

This appears to be a cheap fingerprint scanner that works with Windows XP and includeds the ability to use it for Windows logon password
