Apple’s Touch Bar is just about worthless in its newer MacBook Pro model, but something is great just next to it. It’s a tiny little fingerprint scanner you may not even have known is there, and it allows you to quickly unlock your laptop. Jealous? Don’t be that.
You can add the same feature to your computer for just $22 if you have a Windows 10 laptop or desktop. Check out Amazon’s Idem FCC BioScan Compact USB Fingerprint Scanner, a small USB dongle with an integrated fingerprint sensor. Plug it in and you can unlock your computer without typing that awkward password!
