How to Unlock your PC and laptop via Mobile Fingerprint app for Android



How to Unlock your PC and laptop via Mobile Fingerprint app for Android Remotely and securely unlock your Windows PC using your Android’s fingerprint sensor.If you've lost your PRO upgrade after reinstall, need help with setting up accounts or Wake on Lan, or for any other issue that you may encounter
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).

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.

 Locking a computer (up next!)
 Linux support (planned after lock feature)

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.
