Remote Fingerprint Unlock – Remotely and securely unlock your Windows PC

[App] Remote Fingerprint Unlock

Remote Fingerprint UnlockRemote Fingerprint Unlock : 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). Please choose the corresponding version: x64 for 64-bit or x86 for 32-bit Windows installations. You can download it here:

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).

Please take into account that some manufacturers do not fully implement the required Google Fingerprint API’s or they do not implement them at all, so even though your smartphone may have a fingerprint sensor, the app may appear as incompatible, crash at start-up or not work at all. Unfortunately, there is nothing I can do about it, as the whole security of this app is based on Google’s secure Fingerprint API.

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 or press the refresh button.
Select your computer and press Save.
Now, go to the Accounts menu and tap Add an account. Enter the Windows account that you want to unlock, scan your fingerprint and press Add.
Next, tap on the account name that you want to be unlocked when scanning your fingerprint.
You’re now all set! Go to the Unlock menu and scan your fingerprint. You should now see your computer unlocked.

Log-in/Unlock an account
Simple, user-friendly UI
Local/Microsoft/Domain* accounts support
Light/Dark/Black (AMOLED-friendly) UI themes
Local network/Wi-Fi Tethering support

At the moment, domain accounts are supported only on Windows 8+ computers on the latest (1.0.3) version of the Windows module. Please keep in mind that your account has to be present on the lockscreen for this to be able to work. It does not work for users logging in using the Other Users menu. In the app, simply use the displayed name exactly as on the lockscreen (including the domain name, case sensitive), together with the corresponding password

PRO features:
Ads removal
Adding multiple computers
Adding multiple accounts per computer
Unlock widgets
More planned features

Being a utility app, please be sure to read the F.A.Q. as it contains a lot of useful information that may help you troubleshoot any problem that you may encounter:

If you have the PRO upgrade, you can turn Wake On Lan on by tapping on the desired computer and ticking “Send WoL-Packet”.

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
Bluetooth support
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.

Please check the F.A.Q. for more troubleshooting tips and questions or send me an email if you have any questions regarding the app.

Remote Fingerprint Unlock user reviews :

Perfect! A big thanks to the developer for a near instant reply and Tip on how to use mobile data for unlocking via VPN, it works great! I would 10/10 recommend this app to anyone, the Pro license is awesome and adds even more functionality!

  • Thanks for your suggestions! I will send a false positive report in just a moment. And regarding being connected to Wi-Fi: if you set a specific IP to your saved computer (by tapping on its name and ticking “Connect by IP”), you can initiate an unlock on mobile data also.
Very decent app. It would be perfect, if it could detect when my computer on the network and give me a notification about it.
  • Rusu AndreiJanuary 6, 2019
  • Thanks! That is one of the features that I always wanted to add and I will probably look into it after I finish working on Bluetooth support.

Very useful app, keep up the great work. PC lock would be a feature that would make this even better and worth a purchase but until then I will be fine with the free version.

Nothing much to say except GREAT!!!

Great app. Works perfectly. I just have one complaint that has bugged me for quite some time. My laptop is running windows 10 with a live account signed in. When I use the module to unlock, it works fine, but when I try to log in without the fingerprint app and when the laptop isn’t connected to the internet, after entering the right password, I get the prompt: “Your device is offline. Please sign in with the last password used on this device.” It happens everytime and is very frustrating.

  • Hi! The problem is fixed in the latest 1.0.3 release of the Windows module found in the app’s description. As a friendly tip, please be sure to only download the app from the links found in the Play Store description. Thanks for trying the app!
Excellent app! Hope to add an option to allow returning to desktop (very useful for front finger print sensors) EDIT: Doesn’t work on Windows 10 1809, please fix it!!!!
  • Rusu AndreiDecember 29, 2018
  • In the latest update, an EXIT button has been added and I have already implemented an option to auto-minimize the on a successful fingerprint scan in the next update. About the Windows problem, I have just checked and it works on my end. Can you please send me an email with more details like if you see the Fingerprint Unlock user, etc.
