Windows 10 users that would like to add an extra layer of security to their portable systems may be interested in a new Windows Hello Certified Fingerprint Reader which has been created by PQI and has been aptly named the My Lockey.
The My Lockey USB adapter provides improved encryption that can be directed at a file or folder which can then be unlocked with just a touch of your finger. Removing the need to memorise or enter placated passwords or worry about forgetting them and losing access to your important documents.
When files are encrypted the folder or file looks identical to others and will not draw needless attention from third-party inquisitive eyes. Within the PQI press release the company says they will continue to optimise the use of fingerprint ID to a wider range of implementation.
CEO of Global Operations at PQI, Spencer Chiu explains more :
PQI have been eyeing the biometric market, and plans to be ahead of other competitors. At 2017 CES, PQI My Lockey attracted attention and the number of people showing interests were higher than expected . It simply refused to bow down to smartphones, AR or VR products at the show.
To create My Lockey, PQI utilized Foxlink Group’s sound research as a niche point and cost-effective productivity advantages to partner with US number one IC sensor and Touch-Pad manufacturer, Synaptics. It then acquired certification from Fast Identity Online (FIDO) and now, certification from Microsoft, being the world’s first aftermarket fingerprint ID hardware for Windows Hello! The advanced technology and certifications have brought much encouragement and assurance to PQI My Lockey. The advanced and sophisticated biometric security system has put PQI on the forefront of fingerprint ID in our industry
Unfortunately no information on pricing or worldwide availability has been released as yet by PQI, but as soon as information comes to light we will keep you updated as always.
