How to Login to Windows with your SecuGen Reader

The Windows Biometric Framework (WBF) provides users with built-in support for biometrics that allow you to quickly and easily login to Windows with your SecuGen Reader. If you are running Windows 8.1 or higher, you can also use WBF to securely purchase Windows Store apps and access them using your fingerprint.
