WATCH: Microsoft’s ‘Modern Keyboard’ Has ‘Hidden’ Fingerprint Scanner

Does it irritate you every time you have to type in your password to unlock your computer? Microsoft feels your pain and wants to give you back those precious seconds.

The company this week unveiled the Modern Keyboard, which has a “hidden” fingerprint scanner, so you can easily unlock your machine just like you would your Touch ID-enabled iPhone. The keyboard lets you “bring Windows Hello fingerprint authentication to any Windows 10 device,” Microsoft said.
