Remote Fingerprint Unlock: swipe your fingerprint to unlock Win10 with your phone
When you use your computer, you have set up your account name and password, but you are always worried that someone might know. And fingerprint encryption is not standard on every computer, which makes it a bit inconvenient. A few days ago, I discovered a gadget that allows me to scan my fingerprint on my phone to log into my computer, which is very, very hacky. Let's have a look at it.
The software is called "Remote Fingerprint Unlock" and is available for Android and Windows, with a download link at the here:
Remote Fingerprint Unlock requires the phone and PC to be on the same LAN, which is understandable for an office app - we're just trying to improve the existing level of security, not "open locks from outer space" like the hackers in the film.
2. First configuration
Once the software has been installed, it must be configured for the first time. The specific method is as follows
Launch the Windows client, Win+L to enter the lock screen interface and click on the newly added 'Fingerprint Unlock' account to log in to the interface.
↑↑↑ After installing the Windows client, a "Fingerprint Unload" account will be added automatically
Launch the Android client and click on the menu in the top left corner → "Scan", which will immediately see your computer if your phone and computer are on the same LAN.
↑↑↑ First scan your computer on your phone
Click on the Android client → "My Accounts", enter your current account name and password in Win10 and scan your fingerprint when you have finished.
The client will automatically generate a session ID after you click the "Save" button, compare this ID with the session ID on the previous Win10 login page, if it is the same, it means the match is successful, then click the "Proceed "button, and the first configuration is completed.
↑↑↑ Enter your account name, password and fingerprint, and check your Session ID
Once the above is done, we are ready to experience unlocking the phone in an everyday state. First, let Windows go to the lock screen (a black or bright screen is fine as long as the computer is on), then launch the Remote Fingerprint Unlock app on the phone to scan for fingerprints.
If everything is correct, the computer will instantly turn on the screen and go straight to work, the whole process is very smooth and very, very cool.
↑↑↑ Just go to the login screen and scan your fingerprint on your phone to automatically sign in to Windows
Write at the end
All in all, it's an evocative scene. Sitting in front of your computer, you swipe your finger through the phone's fingerprint reader and the computer in front of you instantly powers up, just like in a sci-fi computer.
There is even a PRO version of Remote Fingerprint Unlock for us, which adds multi-computer support and widget widgets, and even the PRO version adds a WOL network wake-up function, which is even more awesome!
