Remote Fingerprint Unlock
By Rusu Andrei
Remotely and securely unlock your Windows PC using your Android’s fingerprint sensor.
For the application to work, you need to install the Fingerprint Credential Provider module on your Windows PC (Windows Vista/7/8/10). You can download it here: http://bit.ly/2Q4YoUP
The module only runs when the logon screen is active, so, in order to connect your computer, add an account, etc., simply lock your computer (Windows Key L, or from the Start Menu).
How to use the app:
Firstly, be sure that you have installed the Windows module found at the link above.
Go to the Scan menu (making sure that your computer is on the logon screen) and pull to refresh (uses Wi-Fi) or press the add button and use the preferred method of unlocking.
Select your computer and press Save.
Now, go to the Accounts menu, tap the 3-dot menu button of the computer and then Add Account. Enter the Windows account that you want to unlock. Use the displayed name exactly as on the lockscreen (case sensitive, including the domain name if using domain account), together with the corresponding password. Scan your fingerprint and press Add.
For PRO users: to select one of the added accounts as default, tap on the 3-dot menu button then select Set As Default.
To configure a computer, tap on the 3-dot menu button of that computer.
For PRO users: to enable Wake on Lan, go to the computer's configuration menu and enable Send WoL Packet. Make sure the MAC address is correct!
You’re now all set! Go to the Unlock menu and scan your fingerprint. You should now see your computer unlocked.

Being built with security in mind, the app:
• Can be safely be used on a public network –all sent data is encrypted.
• Encrypts the stored information in the user’s computer using a unique key that identifies the app installation.
• Does not store any password in the Android app.
• Prevents attackers from also gaining access to your computer – if an attacker knows your PIN and adds his own fingerprint, the app is immediately notified and automatically invalidates its own key, which makes the stored private app information lost forever.
Possible future updates:
• Linux support
• Lock a computer with the app
• Being notified when one of your computers wakes up
• Timed unlock
Be sure to allow incoming and outgoing traffic (both TCP and UDP) in your firewall for the LogonUI.exe process found in C:\Windows\System32. You will be asked at the installation if you want this done automatically for you if you are using Windows Firewall.
