guide you through the process of setting up or “enrolling” your fingerprints.
Read the “Welcome” screen, and then click Next.
Verify your identity, either by typing your Windows password if you do not have any enrolled
fingerprints yet, or by scanning your fingerprint with the fingerprint reader. Click Next.
If your Windows password is blank, you will be asked to create one. A Windows password is
required in order to protect your Windows account from access by unauthorized persons, and in
order to use HP ProtectTools Security Manager features.
An outline of two hands is displayed. Fingers that are already enrolled are highlighted in green.
Click a finger on the outline.
To delete a previously enrolled fingerprint, click the corresponding fingerprint.
When you have selected a finger to enroll, you are prompted to scan that fingerprint until it is
successfully enrolled. An enrolled finger is highlighted in green on the outline.
