  6. You’ll be prompted to do the same again from a different angle. This builds additional familiarity.
  7. You’ll be prompted to set a PIN as a back-up log-in mechanism if you don’t have one already. You’ll also have the option to register additional fingerprints through the same process.

Now when you turn on your ZenBook 3 or ZenBook 3 Deluxe, you’ll be able to get started just by pressing your finger on the scanner. No more fiddling with passwords, so you can get right to whatever work (or play) you have in mind.

Windows Hello recognizes which fingerprint is used to log in, so if it’s a shared computer, the log-in will recognize and boot up into the appropriate user.

Though logging in is the main use for Windows Hello, there are several apps that can use it for authentication too, like OneDrive, Dropbox, and Enpass. Take a look at all Windows Hello-enabled apps here.
