Using passwords, face recognition, and the fingerprint scanner, we were able to set up varying levels of security for logging into the notebook, as well as for accessing websites, e-mails, and documents. From start to finish, it took us less than five minutes to set up security questions, scan our face and fingerprints, and assign pre-boot and Windows login security credentials.
