Security Mode
The Security Mode screen enables you to control who has access to fingerprint security management controls. There are two security modes ‐ convenient and secure. In the convenient mode, all users share the same privileges. For example, every user can create his own local passport or select a default passport type.
However, if you toggle security to secure mode, the situation changes. Only administrator has an unrestricted access to administrative functions. Standard users need to obtain passports from the administrator (unless user self‐enrollment in logon is enabled). They can only edit their own passport. Only administrator can toggle the security back to the convenient mode.
To set a security mode, complete the following procedure:
1. Click Start > All Programs > ThinkVantage > Fingerprint Software > Control Center.
2.
Click Settings and go to Security Mode.

Power-on security
The power‐on security feature uses the computer BIOS to prevent unauthorized access to the computer. Computers that have the power‐on security feature enabled will not load the operating system prior to successful fingerprint authentication. During computer startup, a user has ten seconds to swipe his finger over the fingerprint sensor. The computer will boot only if the scanned fingerprint matches an enrolled passport for the current user. After successful verification, the boot process continues normally. If fingerprint authentication fails four times in a row, access is blocked and the computer must be restarted.
Enabling power-on security in the fingerprint software
The power‐on security feature can be enabled in the fingerprint software only after a fingerprint has been enrolled into the power‐on security memory. When power‐on security support is detected during passport creation, the power‐on security screens will be displayed automatically. The power‐on security feature is disabled by default. To enable the power‐on security feature using the ThinkVantage Fingerprint Software interface, complete the following procedure:
1. Click Start > All Programs > ThinkVantage > Fingerprint Software > Control Center.
2.
Click Settings.
3.
Click Power‐on security.
The Power‐on security screen is displayed.
4. Select the Replace power‐on password with fingerprint check box and click Finish.
5.
Click Add and select a fingerprint from the displayed field. After a fingerprint has been added to the power‐on security memory, it is listed in the Authorized fingerprints for power‐on security window. 6.
Add more fingerprints, as necessary.
7.
Click Finish.
8.
Set up a power‐on password using the BIOS Setup utility, if not set previously.
The Authorized fingerprints for power‐on security window of the Power‐on security screen lists fingerprints present in the power‐on security device memory. A green fingerprint icon indicates fingerprints from the current user. A gray fingerprint icon indicates fingerprints from other users.
Note: Changing a passport (adding or deleting a fingerprint) does not automatically add or remove the fingerprint for power‐on security use.
Enabling a power-on password in the BIOS Setup utility
To enable the power‐on security feature of the fingerprint software, you must enable a power‐on password using the BIOS Setup utility. This BIOS setting must be set for the ThinkVantage Fingerprint Software power‐on security feature to function correctly.
To enable a BIOS password, complete the following generic procedure:
1.
Restart your computer.
2. When prompted during startup, press F1 or the BIOS‐specific startup interrupt key to launch the BIOS Setup utility.

4.
Enable the power‐on or hard drive password feature, if desired.
5.
Press F10 to save your changes and exit the BIOS Setup utility.
6.
Press Enter to confirm.
Notes:
•
Your power‐on password is required at your subsequent log on. This enables the fingerprint software to complete the connection between the fingerprint and the BIOS power‐on security.
•
Actual steps might differ depending upon the BIOS utility installed on your computer. Enabling automatic logon of users verified by power-on security
The power‐on security feature can also be set to log the user onto Windows. When this feature is enabled, if the power‐on security fingerprint matches a fingerprint on an existing passport, the corresponding user is logged onto Windows automatically. This feature saves the user from having to authenticate twice when starting the computer: once for the power‐on feature and again to log onto Windows.
To enable automatic Windows logon of users verified by power‐on security, complete the following procedure:
1.
Click Start > All Programs > ThinkVantage > Fingerprint Software > Control Center.
2.
Click Settings.
3.
Click System settings and go to the Logon page.
4.
Select the Allow power‐on security single sign‐on check box.
Tutorial
Strip sensors represent a new type of fingerprint sensors. To help you with your first steps, we created a tutorial where you can try to create fingerprint samples and learn about possible problems.
This tutorial can be run any time from the Control Center, from the Start menu, ThinkVantage ‐ ThinkVantage Fingerprint Software ‐ Fingerprint Tutorial. It can be also run from the enrollment wizard.
This tutorial shows a short video with samples of correct and incorrect fingerprint scanning. You will learn some hints how to achieve the best possible quality of scanned samples.
You can try to create your first samples and watch the resulting images. This helps you to improve positioning of fingers and applied pressure.
