Windows 7: Fingerprint Scanner Software

Fingerprint Scanner Software

Does anyone know of any decent software which would allow me to log into websites using my fingerprint scanner on my laptop? The free trial to one that I was using expired.

I've been using DigitalPersona Personal that came installed with my HP Pavillion a year ago. It's a well known reliable program, but it does have its quirks. It may only be available through your computer manufacturer though. What brand is your computer?

I have fingerprint scanners on 3 laptops here.{ The fingerprint scanners are NOT used.}
Would suggest you read some literature / links on the pros & cons before installing & using same full time.
Google is your friend for finding out more information.

The real problem with biometric security systems is the extent of the damage when somebody does manage to steal the identity information. If you lose your credit card or accidentally tell somebody your secret PIN number, you can always get a new card or change your code. But if somebody steals your fingerprints, you're pretty much out of luck for the rest of your life. You wouldn't be able to use your prints as a form of identification until you were absolutely sure all copies had been destroyed. There's no way to get new prints.

I also am using the DigitalPersona software that came with my HP dv8.

However, a quick google search reveals many of the open source variety.
