The fingerprint reader is integrated with the power button. After enrolling your fingerprint, you can power on
and log in to the computer with a simple press on the power button, or unlock the screen with a single touch.
It eliminates the need to enter complex passwords, saving your time and boosting your productivity.

Note: It is recommended that you put your finger at the middle of the fingerprint reader during
enrollment and enroll more than one fingerprint in case of any injuries to your fingers. After the
enrollment, the fingerprints are associated with the Windows password automatically.
3. Log in with your fingerprint. When the fingerprint reader indicator is solid green, tap your finger on the
fingerprint reader for authentication.
