    I Need A Bluetooth/Wireless Fingerprint Reader


    I'm not having any luck finding a compact Bluetooth/wireless fingerprint reader that is supported by Windows 8.

    I'm running Windows 8 Pro x64.

    Does anyone have any recommendations or where I should search?

    They are all USB, wireless won't work before you sign in to your computer. Check ebay, lots to choose from at decent prices.

    Oh, good point! If I'm not going to be able to use it at sign-in, then that wouldn't be very practical!

    Thanks for the info!
