Step 1. Install driver

  • When you plug in your fingerprint reader to your PC for the first time, the SecuGen WBF Driver should install automatically if your PC is connected to the Internet. It may take up to a few minutes to complete.
    • If for any reason this does not happen, you can download it from this page and install it manually.


  • If you have previously installed other (non-WBF) SecuGen device drivers, you must uninstall those before installing the WBF driver.
    • To uninstall, open the Control Panel and then open the Device Manager. Under Biometric Devices, right-click on the SecuGen device and then click Uninstall, with the option Delete the driver software for this device selected.
    • After the driver has been uninstalled, unplug the fingerprint reader and plug it into the PC again. The SecuGen WBF Driver download and installation should start automatically.
