It is suggested that you turn on Biometric Authentication for increased security and simplicity. With Biometric Authentication, you will use your finger as a method for accessing your iPaq after it has been turned off or inactive. It is highly suggested that you use Biometric Authentication along with regular password authentication, so that you have another means of gaining access to your iPaq. You will first need to train the iPaq to understand your finger print. The process of doing this will be outlined in the following procedure. Once you have turned on your iPaq and are at the Today screen, you will want to follow the procedure outlined below.
- Select Settings from the Start menu
- Click Password from the Personal tab window
- Select Password OR fingerprint or PIN OR fingerprint, depending on whether you want to use a 4 digit PIN or an alphanumeric password
- You will be prompted to start fingerprint training, click Yes
- Follow the fingerprint training tutorial as directed on the screen, click the >> when finished with each step
- Once you have enrolled your left and right index fingers, you can click ok at the top of the screen
- You will be asked if you want to save changes, click Yes
- Do a soft reset to ensure that your Biometric Authentication is working properly
- The My Info screen will appear, tap the screen
- Now slide your finger across the scanner just as you had during the training
You should now be logged into your iPaq and at the Today screen. If for some reason your finger print is not recognized, simply use your 4 digit PIN or alphanumeric password to login instead.
