Add a capacitive Windows Hello USB fingerprint reader cheaply to your laptop

It took a while for the new generation of swipe-less Windows Hello USB fingerprint readers to hit the market, and a little while longer for them to hit impulse-buy prices, but you can now add Windows Hello support to your Windows 10 PC for pretty cheaply.

The BENSS mini USB fingerprint reader offers multi-finger & 360-degree touch fingerprint reading support and features:

  • FAST AND PASSWORD-FREE Sign-in to Windows using your fingerprint
  • SECURE YOUR LAPTOP Easiest and most secure way to unlock and sign-in to your laptop
  • DESIGNED FOR WINDOWS HELLO Supports the NEW Windows 10 Hello and Windows 8.1
  • 3 TIMES FASTER with Windows Hello, you can sign-in into your windows devices in less than 2 second -that’s 3 times faster than a password that you have to remember and type in. Windows Hello uses your fingerprint to recognise you instantly
  • MULTI FINGERS & 360 DEGREE TOUCH You can use it with your any finger and Habits

Having used one for some months now, I can say it definitely improves the security of your PC, as you are more inclined to lock your device for short periods of absence if you can unlock it very easily, and do it without exposing your PIN to anyone looking over your shoulder.

The fingerprint reader now only costs $19.99 and can be found at Amazon here (down from nearly $37), and only £29.99 in the UK, down from £40.
