Let Your Fingers Do The Walking Around The Internet

OK, that fingerprint thing.

Way cool.

Here's the skinny. I got the idea from my new tablet. See that little rectangular reader at the end of the pen laying on top of the tablet in the linked picture? That's a fingerprint scanner. You drag your finger or thumb across it, and it reads your fingerprint.

Then, the software logs you into the computer, and logs you in and logs you in.

What's the most frustrating thing about surfing the internet?

Logins.

Every time you turn around, you have to Log In to see content, do your online banking, access your email, VNC or RDP into work and on and on. It's enough to drive you crazy.

Enter OmniPass. It's software that came with my tablet fingerprint reader and the Targus fingerprint reader I just hooked up to my workstation at the office.

What a deal. No more multiple passwords.

All you have to do is login to your own computer with your fingerprint, and then "train" the software once. The first time you login anywhere, you click on the "Remember password" feature of the software, and the next time you get to the site, the software will enter the username and password for you, and you're off to the races.

Your multiple login usernames and passwords are safe because no one else has your fingerprint.

Such a deal.

Just don't lose your fingerprint.
