    I used to use a fingerprint scanner that would then type the password into KeePass. To have one fully integrated would require someone writes a plug-in and that is unlikely to be the developer as it would probably only work on one type of biometric device.

    cheers, Paul

    Hi, thanks for the reply. Any idea of how you did it before ? It would make logging in really hassle free. I'm on windows 8.1 and I use AuthenTec Truesuite to log me in using my fingerprint when windows starts.

    Thanks

    I don't know your program, but if it can type a password into another program you can use it to enter the KeePass master password.

    cheers, Paul

    Unfortunately it cannot, do you know of software that can ?

    Thanks

    Can it open an encrypted file? If so you could use it as a key file - make sure you have a backup of the key file.

    cheers, Paul

    No, I think the version I have can only log me in when windows starts. It would be cool if Keepass could somehow make use of the generic biometric fingerprint driver in device manager. Also my password for Keepass I made deliberately different to my windows password so even if my software could 'fill-in' the password it wouldn't be quite as secure as what I'd want.

    My personal laptop (HP, Simplepass by Authen Tec) does fill in the Keepass password using its fingerprint reader. My work laptop (Lenovo, Thinkvantage ) does not unless I pay for a better version. It depends on the fingerprint reader driver and if you can set it up to automatically enter passwords for software dialogues. My HP laptop will even start the keepass software if I scan my finger print once windows is running.

    Personally I am quite happy I am forced to type it now and again because when using a finger print reader long term its easy to forget passwords.

    Mark I have an HP Envy, Product name: HP ENVY TS 15 Notebook PC Product number: E3S23UA#ABA.
    Can you share with me how you got simple pass to log into Keepass? I asked HP but Ha Ha they are to dumb to answer the question.

    First you will need to be sure Simple Pass is installed
    http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?cc=uk&lc=en&softwareitem=ob-82068-1 .... at your own risk of course..its best if you find for yourself the correct version for your laptop.

    Simple pass can be set to launch Keepass by scanning a finger. This done using Quick Actions found under fingerprints in the software.

    Once keepass or any other screen requiring login is launched the software recognises the login and a icon pops up next to the login giving a chance to add it to the password manager, or you can go to the software direct and add the password in the password manager section. If the password is already stored in Simple Pass then just scan a finger and when recognised it will automatically enter the login details for the login. This works for many types of logins for programs other restrictions on my laptop. Its not for internet logins.

      Mine is installed but it is version 7. Supposedly the current version is 8
      but I'm not sure if I should try to switch to version 6 (the one you
      suggest) or go to 8. I'm note even certain if I can actually do it with my
      hardware, which is the validity sensor.
