How to use password instead of fingerprint to logon

I have a fingerprint reader on my laptop that uses Digital Persona software. I need to disable it so that friends or family can share the laptop. In other words, how do I get it to ask for a password instead of a fingerprint?

I purchased a 4500 digital persona fingerprint reader but it came with no software. IM at a lost on what to do. I cant fint the software any place.


I am in the same boat as you. I downloaded the software from the DP website but their support sucks. It doesn't even say if its compatible with win7. I emailed their support group for a solution. I'll share their reply with you.

HAVEA TOSHIBA LAPTOP WITH A FINGERPRINT IDENTIFIER TO OPEN WINDOWS, WANT TO CHANGE THE FINGERPRINT TO MY DAUGHTERS. HOW DO WE ACCESS THIS?


dentifying the fingerprint readerA fingerprint reader provides extra security for the PC. The VeriSoft Access Manager by Bioscrypt uses the fingerprint reader to identify the user, and controls access to Windows or other secure systems. Instead of typing a User ID and password, you can move your finger across a sensor to logon or start commonly used applications. Verisoft Access Manager can manage all of your different secure accounts and the required user names and passwords by recognizing your fingerprint.On HP notebook PCs, the fingerprint reader is a small metallic sensor located near the keyboard or display. By swiping your finger perpendicular to the metallic sensor you can logon to the PC, a network, or open a program. c00897920.gifBefore you can use the fingerprint reader, you must set up the fingerprint reader by registering your fingerprint with the Access Manager. Set up the fingerprint reader To set up the fingerprint reader to recognize a user, the user must have a logon account on the PC and the account must have a password. Multiple users can be registered for the fingerprint reader if each has their own user account.
  1. In Windows, double-click the VeriSoft Access Manager icon c00897921.gif in the notification area of the taskbar to open the My Identity window. Alternately, click Start > All programs > Verisoft > My Identity .
  2. Click Log On to open the VeriSoft Logon Wizard. Click Next to begin.
  3. Enter the User's Windows password in the Password field on the Introduce Yourself page, and click Next . If you have successfully logged on to Windows, click Finish to close the wizard.
  4. Click Register Fingerprints on the My Identity window, to open the VeriSoft Logon Wizard. Click Next to begin. c00897922.gif
  5. Select a finger shown on the hand graphic, and then slowly swipe your finger across the sensor. One of the squares below the hand graphic will change color when the scan is accepted. A message displays if the scan is not accepted.
  6. Swipe the same finger across the sensor again until all four squares change color, then clickNext to register the finger print. If you need to start over during the fingerprint registration process, right-click the highlighted finger on the screen and then click Start Over .

  8. After using the Registration Wizard to registered at least 2 fingers, click Finish .

Add password to Creditial manger


Digital Persona, the software installed on your Dell computer to manage fingerprint logon, has designed to be integrated on your Windows Vista computer. The software requires you to create a windows logon password and a admin password for the said software so you can enable the fingerprint log in. If in case your sensor fails, you may log on to your computer by using the traditional keyboard.
