Performance

Loaded with XP with absolutely no problem.Directions are clear and easy. Software superb. Was up and running in just a couple of minutes. User friendly. NO manual needed. Just have to type in password at each site to program and that is it. So impressed and happy that I bought this. GREAT buy and real headache reliever!! It is for ease of everyday passwords........not security of sensitive passwords!

-Grammie quote

Tired of using all of those passwords, and forgetting most of them. Don't do it the old way, use this fingure scanner and save your self the time, and headaches. Outstanding product. I am really glad I bought this. Stop thinking about getting a fingure print scanner for your passwords, and buy this one. Its outstanding. You willn't regret it. I have not.

Convenience at your fingertips

on 7/22/2007

The hardware piece is well designed, rugged and works very nice. The software that comes in the package is very easy to use. The installation procedure is very straightforward: insert the CD in the drive, click the Next button a couple of times, plug the fingerprint reader, restart the computer. The day-by-day usage is also very simple, since the program interface is very intuitive: on a logon screen, touch the reader, select the fields, fill them and it's done. With all this easiness, after a week you just can't stand typing your passwords anymore on logon screen or websites. The worst con about the product is now over: the reader does work with Mozilla Firefox web browser. All you must do is just installing an add-on, available at http://www.fingerauth.com. Unfortunately, the reader can be used only on Windows XP and Windows Vista operating systems. There's also no support for the 64 bits version of these systems. Although the installation program and manual states all the time that the fingerprint reader isn't a security feature, it should not fear the average user of buying and using it: the fingerprints and the logon data are encrypted and, if you don't use it to save the password of your bank account that holds 1 million dollars, there's no need to worry about it. The security measures taken by MS are enough for the average user.

Crash IE 7

on 9/3/2007

Used for over the past year and it workED great with IE 6.0. Now with IE 7.0 and even with new driver from Microsoft, this MFR will crash IE 7.0 and slow down IE 7.0 whether you used WinXP or Vista. Best test site is to use eBay, crash very very often! P.S. It will NOT work with any other Internet browsers. As of today 9/4/07, this product is strictly for used with IE 6.0 period.
