I use the Verifi fingerprint scanner. it works great and you'll be happy with it. The model is: P5000. Works with Windows 8.1 and down.


It goes for $119.00. This fingerprint reader is one that you place your finger on....instead of swiping. Works much, much better than the swipe. You can get cheaper readers if you go with the swipe, which you will find on their site.

We use these at work.


They have a good variety of devices with various features. (Although they are a bit more on the pricy side) They work very well. We have been using them since 2004 with no mishaps.
