    Hi,

    We understand that you're having challenges with your finger print login option. You may be facing it due to various reasons. To start troubleshooting, we suggest that you uninstall and reinstall the
    finger print driverand check if the issue reoccur. Follow the steps below:

    • Delete the fingerprints you've already registered.
    • Press Windows Key + R Key.
    • Then type “devmgmt.msc” and press Enter.
    • Uninstall the current driver the current diver under "Biometric devices".
    • You maybe have to click the "discover new hardware" symbol in the device manager.

    PIN and FingerPrint not working

    This morning when I kept my finger my print sensor said it can't recognise my finger and it said to enter my pin,after that I entered my pin and it also didn't work this said error 0x80070032 so it gave an option to enter password.After entering my password
    I got inside and checked my account setting there my pin was not there and also my fingerprint.I tried to setup my fingerprint but it demands to setup pin if I try to setup pin I can't do it.So considering this issue suggest me a measure.

    thanking you
