Finger Scanner Login

HP Recommended
HP Envy Laptop (Model 7265NGW)
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

I have recently noticed that the finger scanner for login in does not work. I tried to delete my current finger setting and rescan my finger details. However, I am now being told that "something went wrong" and to "try again later".

 

I noticed that the HP SimplePass file was downloaded and installed on the 14th January 2017. Is there anything that I need to do or have done that has resulted in the finger scanner not working.

 

Hope you can help.

 

Thanks.

Hi @Heav82

 

Welcome to the HP Forums!

 

It is a great way to engage, post questions and find resolutions by working with specialists in the HP community.

 

I reviewed your post and I understand that the finger printer reader for login is not working.

 

I’d love to help!

 

Uninstall the simple pass software from the computer and restart the computer. Download and install the software again from the below link.

Let me know how it goes and you have a great day.
