Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: How does the UPEK ﬁngerprint reader help me protect myself?
A: You can use the UPEK ﬁngerprint reader instead of your passwords when you turn on your notebook and when you log onto Windows. This prevents unauthorized access to data on your notebook and to networks and services you access through your notebook.
Q: Is my ﬁngerprint stored somewhere? How is my privacy protected?
A: Your ﬁngerprint image is never stored - it is used to create a mathematical “template” of your ﬁngerprint and then discarded. And your template can never be used to re-create your ﬁngerprint!
Q: What if the ﬁngerprint reader doesn't seem to recognize me?
A: Try re-enrolling your ﬁnger after watching the tutorial video on swiping technique. You can usually improve the quality of your enrollment the second time around since now you are more familiar with optimal swiping technique.
Q: Can’t someone fool (spoof) or hack the ﬁngerprint reader with a photocopy or fake ﬁnger?
A: No. The UPEK ﬁngerprint reader contains technology to prevent spooﬁng and hacking.
Q: What happens if the UPEK ﬁngerprint reader is damaged and I can’t get in?
A: UPEK ﬁngerprint readers are very reliable and millions are in use today. In addition, your Gateway notebook lets you use a backup password.
Q: How can I ﬁnd more information about the ﬁngerprint reader on my notebook?
A: See your online Reference Guide and the Fingerprint Control Center online help for more information.
