Windows 7: Adding Two-Factor Authentication in Windows 7

Adding Two-Factor Authentication in Windows 7

Hello. I have a HP Pavilion dv6 laptop, equipped with a simplepass fingerprint reader, Windows 7 (64-bit). I was wondering if there was any way I could possibly require BOTH the fingerprint and a password for the login screen before the computer allowed me to log on (multi-factor/two-factor authentication). Thanks.

I have a HP Pavilion dv7 laptop, and the feature isn't available to me. So it's unlikely that it'll be available for you.

Hi Elementer, Welcome to Sevenforums.

By itself the SimplePass application allows you to use your fingerprint to automatically enter your Windows password, there is no option to do both.
