EcoID operates on Windows 7, 8.1 and 10 with a USB port enabling customers to utilize Windows Hello and Passport biometric login platforms. Additionally, BIO-key's EcoID is one of the only scanner devices on the market today to pass Microsoft's rigorous accuracy and security testing qualification process allowing it to proudly bear the Microsoft Hello-Ready mark.
With EcoID, enrollment takes just a few minutes and once enrolled, customers can use the fingerprint scanner on any device to achieve fast authentication by replacing outdated passwords using the simple, yet significant, "Power of a Touch."
*Please note that this product is not compatible with Apple products.
**The EcoID fingerprint sensor requires a mild amount of moisture to read the finger ridges to produce it’s biometric template. Some people, based on age, health conditions or other factors may have ‘dry fingers’ which will make the fingers difficult to impossible for the EcoID to effectively read. In these cases BIO-key recommends the BIO-key SideSwipe or BIO-key PIV-Pro sensors as very usable alternatives.
