About the fingerprint reader Dell Latitude tablets and laptops (applicable models only) feature an advanced fingerprint reader that allows you to confirm your identity and log in to the system with a single touch of your finger.

The fingerprint reader uses a methodology in which a user's identity is authenticated via stored data. However, the performance of this authentication process depends on the user's individual fingerprint characteristics. This guide will help you understand the do's and don'ts for a successful authentication and take you through several troubleshooting steps to help resolve issues, if any.

Troubleshooting This section will help you troubleshoot some of the most common issues with fingerprint authentication.

The fingerprint authentication methodology is an advanced security feature and may not work properly if the finger is not placed flat and fully covering the reader. Ensure that you practice placing your fingers onto the reader. Note: The fingerprint reader will not work if only the tip of the finger is touched or scanned.

Place the finger upright and centered, covering the whole active reader area.

Do not place the finger to the side, above, or below the reader area.

Troubleshooting 17

Possible malfunctioning reasons Corrective action

Finger is wet, oily, or dirty (due to cosmetics, creams, mud, dust, etc.,).

Wipe the finger and re-try.

Oil and/or dirt adhering to the reader surface (cosmetics, hand cream, mud, dust etc.,).

Clean the reader surface with a dry, soft cloth.

Finger is cut or injured. Register a different finger.

Significant change from the initial registration (weight gain, low quality/erosion of fingerprint, etc.,).

Register a different finger.

Blunt force to the reader or the surface of the reader is scratched with fingernail and/or hard object.

Contact Dell for further advice.

Adhesive materials on the surface of the reader. Contact Dell for further advice.

NOTE: If you experience repeated difficulties signing in with your fingerprint, try re-registering your fingerprint (see Registering Fingerprint section above). It is possible that your original fingerprint registration was not sufficient or that your fingerprint changed since your initial registration. Since the characteristics of fingerprints change due to injury, aging, or wear and tear, it is recommended that you repeat the registration process every six months to enable your computer to recognize your latest fingerprint(s).
