I just got a new HP laptop and it has a fingerprint scanner so you can log onto your computer. I was kind of excited to use it, but in the middle of setting it up, I said "wait a minute" and decided to post here.

Are my fingerprints and info being sent off somewhere?

maybe i'm just paranoid.

Thoughts?

You are paranoid. The government probably already has your genetic material anyway.

No! it's not safe! It's got a laser in it!!


Got anything to hide?

Hmmmm.... all snarkiness aside. I probably wouldn't use it and I'm not even very paranoid.

It's just a convenience unless you have some very sensitive data that you must protect using the latest ID tech. Me... I'll stick with typing my password in...

your being paranoid, it's just a little pain in the neck gadget, and as far as I know nothing is sent anywhere.

Yeah I think about the webcam alot too, but if someone wants to watch me beat the bologna while I watch albino midget porn, thats their problem not mine. .

Just joking I don't do that.
