    Windows Hello Fingerprint issue

    Hi Rajesh,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    We understand that you are unable to use Windows Hello Fingerprint to sign in to Windows. It would be great if you can reply with the details requested below:



    • When you say, “I am not getting the option to log-in into windows using fingerprint.” What login options do you see on the login screen?
    • What happens when you try to use the Windows Hello Fingerprint scanner to login to Windows?
    • Were you able to use the Windows Hello Fingerprint to login to Windows earlier?


    Ideally, on the login screen, you will see Sign-in options that allows you to use different sign-in methods to login to Windows.



    As you have mentioned that you are able to use the Fingerprint scanner on websites, I would suggest you to refer the steps mentioned below and see if that helps:



    1. On the login screen, click on Sign-in options.
    2. Click on the Fingerprint icon, scan the Fingerprint, and see if you are able to sign in.


    Refer the screenshot below:

    If the issue persists, try removing the Fingerprint and add it again. Refer the steps mentioned below:



    1. Press Windows key + I, to open
      Settings
      .
    2. Click on Accounts and click on
      Sign-in options
      on the left pane.
    3. Now, click on Windows Hello Fingerprint and click on
      Remove.
    4. Follow the on-screen instructions to remove the Fingerprint.
    5. Once done, click on Set up and follow the on-screen instructions to add the Fingerprint.


    Let us know how it goes.

    Windows Hello Face/Fingerprint

    The Windows Hello Face/Fingerprint feature was working on my HP Envy and now it is not working and it says that my laptop camera/fingerprint scanner is not compatible, when it was working less than 12 hours ago. When I look into how to reconnect or find
    Window Hello Fingerprint/Face biometrics the only help I get is to the Windows 10 sign-in options.
    I need to know how and were to find the Windows Hello Face/fingerprint biometrics management settings that is not in the sign-in options, but is how to re-download it or check it's compatibility status with my laptop.

    How to disable the Remove button on Windows Hello Face and Windows Hello Fingerprint...

    Windows Hello Face and Fingerprint Unavailable

    Andre,

    Thanks so much for your help!

    My make is the Hp Spectre x360 Convertible 13-ap0xx

    I tried to remove the Windows Hello Face and Fingerprint under Settings, but there is no option for "Remove". For the Face Recognition, the Remove button is there, but I can't press it. For the Fingerprint, the only option is "Set Up", and I also can't click
    that.

    I also went on Device Manager. Under "Biometrics", I removed the Fingerprint and Facial Recognition. However, when I rebooted the computer and pressed "Scan for Hardware Changes", only the Fingerprint Reader was restored, and I can't find the Facial Recognition
    anywhere.

    Thanks again,

    Vanessa
