  2. Fingerprint sensor disabled by Windows 10 update 1803

    I recently installed update 1803 on my HP Windows 10 laptop. The fingerprint sensor stopped working. I don't know if was turned off or disabled or what.

    Is there a way I can fix it? I found a thread about it here, but I'm not sure what they they are suggesting.

    Fingerprint reader not working

    Thanks for the response. We need to update the driver associated to fingerprint hardware to help resolve the issue. Follow the steps below:

    • Go to Control Panel --> Device Manager.
    • In the Device Manager, click Biometric Devices and expand the list. The fingerprint sensor is listed as a
      Synaptics FP Sensor, depending on the model of your system.
    • Right click on the device and choose Properties.
    • In the Properties, click “Driver” tab.
    • Click “Update Driver” for searching updated driver package even if the driver is up-to-date.

    Let us know if this works.
