Biometrics is a technique for identifying people by using a unique physical characteristic, such as a fingerprint, eye, or face. Biometric devices verify someone's identity by comparing a saved measurement of a particular physical characteristic to a current measurement.

The most common biometric device is a fingerprint reader. Windows 7 supports the use of fingerprint readers to log on to your computer. Fingerprint readers can also be used to log on to websites, and some programs offer features that work with fingerprint readers.
