Windows 10 will start automatically to scan your finger for fingerprints and unlock your computer with a tap of a button, and if you have a fingerprint reader on your smartphone, you can disable it by right-clicking it and choosing “Disable fingerprint reader.”
The fingerprint scanner is a feature in Windows 10 that allows users to use a digital fingerprint reader without having to use their own fingers, but it’s not always clear how to disable it.
Open the Control Panel2.
Click on the General tab4.
Scroll down until you see the option to disable fingerprint reader5.
Click that and select “Disable”6.
Once that’s done, your fingerprint reader will be turned off.
