Trying to use Simple Pass fingerprint reader on my HP Envy m6 Notebook, getting this message "system policies have disabled the Windows Biometric Credential Provider", when I type in my password to set up the logon.   since Windows 10 upgrade​
Can't find an answer at HP, Biometric manufacturer or Microsoft sites

There is a lot out there if you search on "system policies disabled windows biometric login", and the stuff for Windows 8 will probably apply to Windows 10.


Have a quick look at these two posts on Windows EightForums:


         How to Enable or Disable Biometrics Sign-in for Users in Windows 8.1


      How to Enable or Disable Biometrics Sign-in for Domain Users in Windows 8.1


or this on the Microsoft Community Forums:


         enable biometrics/ fingerprint log in


Sorry for the font craziness, but didn't use the "paste as plain text" like I should have and am too lazy to correct it.
