Latitude 5285 / 5290 2-in-1 Fingerprint Reader Setup and Authentication Owner's Manual


About the fingerprint reader

Dell Latitude tablets and laptops (applicable models only) feature an advanced fingerprint reader that allows you to confirm your identity and log in to the system with a single touch of your finger.

The fingerprint reader uses a methodology in which a user's identity is authenticated via stored data. However, the performance of this authentication process depends on the user's individual fingerprint characteristics. This guide will help you understand the do's and don'ts for a successful authentication and take you through several troubleshooting steps to help resolve issues, if any.
