Today at TechEd North America 2013 Microsoft demonstrates an FPC fingerprint touch sensor in combination with a beta version of Windows 8.1, an update to Windows 8. The demonstrations showcase a number of innovative online use cases using FPC's fingerprint touch technology.

Windows 8.1 customers will be able to sign on to their Microsoft account, make online payments and other transactions using the fingerprint sensor for secure and convenient user verification. By utilizing FPC's fingerprint touch sensor in combination with this update to Windows 8, we are able to deliver a greatly enhanced experience that provides "touch and go" secure account access.

"Fingerprint-based Biometrics sensors will be an integral part of the Windows 8.1 user experience. They'll provide enhanced security and the very best experience for verifying a user's identity.  Fingerprint Cards has shown us an impressive roadmap and a great line-up of capacitive touch sensors that will help make biometrics mainstream on Windows devices. We appreciate the collaborative nature of FPC and their receptiveness to our feedback which will result in excellent integration in Windows 8.1," says Dustin Ingalls , Partner Group Program Manager for Windows Security & Identity at Microsoft.

"By this initiative, Microsoft is spearheading the use of fingerprint sensors to enable the ultimate secure and convenient user experience for its users. The combination of Microsoft's intuitive user interface in Windows 8.1 and FPC's high performance fingerprint touch sensor makes the user verification experience totally seamless to consumers and enterprise users and nicely combines security and convenience. We are extremely proud to have been appointed  a Blue*Partner and to be a key part of this Microsoft initiative by bringing forward the world's first fingerprint touch sensor for mobile devices together with Microsoft," says Johan Carlström, President and CEO Fingerprint Cards AB.
