    2 factor authentification for admin


    Hello.

    I have configured my laptop so that I can log on using either a password or a fingerprint.

    This is for my user account. For my admin account I want to log on with pass AND print.

    Is this possible?
    Cheers

    That would depend on your fingerprint software - probably not.

    With mine (AuthenTec) I certainly can't - it is either/or but not both.

    I'm not aware of any way to require both.
