What is Simple Pass?

The HP SimplePass is a fingerprint security management application developed by Authentec for HP computers (desktops and laptops). Select versions of the HP Pavilion desktops and laptops have fingerprint readers, and the SimplePass is especially made for these kinds of units to support them. In a nutshell, the HP SimplePass allows the user to set his or her fingerprint as the master key to store the passwords and other confidential data on their computer. With the fingerprint scanning technology of HP SimplePass, the system can recognize the owner’s fingerprint and then the user can bind passwords to the recognized fingerprint. From then on, the system will store passwords and other such data under that fingerprint, which can be accessed by a simple swipe on the fingerprint reader.

The HP SimplePass can also be configured to not only accept one fingerprint, but also of others, if the computer is a shared one. This way, preferences, settings, and passwords can be bound to a fingerprint (i.e. a particular user), which they can access or enable with one swipe of their finger on the fingerprint reader. It also provides a “one-time password” access to such sites like Best Buy and PayPal.
