LG Electronics has launched biometric notebook computers using advanced fingerprint sensors from AuthenTec, the world leader in fingerprint sensor security.

The company has selected AuthenTec's EntrePad 2501A sensor for its M1, P1, S1 and the Red dot Award-winning T1 EXPRESS DUAL notebook models. The EntrePad sensor supports LG's total security solution for its new range of notebook computers.

A fingerprint sensor replaces the need for passwords and PIN numbers. It allows only authorised users to access information stored on the computer by simply sliding their finger across the sensor surface.

The fingerprint reader can also be used to encrypt files and folders for an additional layer of security. The biometric scanner also reduces the risk of fraud or identity theft.

"Biometrics is moving quickly from fiction to reality and is being widely incorporated in many electronic devices," K.W Kim, President, LG Electronics, Middle East and Africa Operations. "It is considered a reliable solution for protecting the user's identity as it recognises a unique and unalterable feature. By adopting world class technology, we will accelerate our product leadership and introduce products that serve genuine and relevant customer needs."
