HP laptops with fingerprint readers - digital signing and entering e-services is successful without entering PIN codes
If you are using Hewlett Packard (HP) laptop which has a build in fingerprint reader then it's possible that in some cases you dont need to enter PIN-codes to digitally sign or access e-services.
This situation is caused by the HP ProtectionTools Security Manager software needed for fingerprint reader. The software automatically saves your PIN-codes when you first enter them.
For safe ID-card usage in these laptops you have three options:
- Use PIN-pad card reader. List of supported readers can be found here;
- Make sure that under Windows Security Properties the choice „Log on user automatically“ is inactive (example picture). If its active then uncheck it and confirm changes with "OK".
- Remove HP ProtectionTools Security Manager software.
NB! This situation could happen with another manufacturers laptops using similar hardware and software. When you dont have a HP laptop and experience similar security issues then please contact us on support[at]sk.ee.
