SideTouch is as easy-to-use, durable compact fingerprint reader that operates on any Windows device with a standard USB port. SideTouch was developed to provide an affordable option for tablet and laptop users to conveniently incorporate biometric authentication into their sign-in process.

SideTouch operates seamlessly with Microsoft's new Windows 10 biometric sign-in feature - Windows Hello, and is one of the only scanner devices in the market to pass Microsoft's rigorous accuracy and security testing qualification process to bear the Microsoft Hello-Ready mark.

Use SideTouch and Windows Hello to access your device and soon, your favorite applications and websites with a simple touch. Using our compact fingerprint reader and Windows Hello, customers will be able to use their fingerprint to sign-in to websites and applications using FIDO 2.0/W3C Web Authentication specification.
