    Disable adding additional fingerprint.


    Hi!

    Is there a way to disable adding more fingerprints without disabling the option? I still want to use the fingerprint scanner but prevent users from adding additional fingers for others to login. Currently, when a user login with the finger scanner, I can not prevent from adding more fingers.

    thanks in advanced.

    Make the other users Standard, not Administrator accounts perhaps?

    Sorry, but they are all standard accounts already.

    Thanks

    I would think a standard user could not add a new account, regular or fingerprint access controlled.

    How do they do it?

    I wrote a time card program using a Winbook with multiple accounts where each one can login only with the finger scanner. No one can change the password since they do not have the old password but when adding additional fingers,it does not require a password. This will allow another person to access the system and clock in and our for others.

    Thanks again.

    I guess I don't understand. Something that is that security defined should require an Administrator account.

    Sorry I can't be of any help.

    Any time clock program that is properly written, will only allow the administrator to reboot the system, add & delete users. You are going to have to do more research on this matter. The only way to restrict users, is to use a Pro Edition, and not let users get into the system when they punch in & out.

    For $130, you can get a unit that is setup to do this process. uAttend BN6000 Biometric Fingerprint Time Clock System - Time Clock Express
