Anyone use this? It looks kind of cheaply built, but I'd like to add a fingerprint sensor to my windows laptop.

The mouse does look pretty cheap, but the fingerprint reader should be pretty good. I bit to add to my collection of readers.

It looks like one of Synaptic swipe based readers and I have used them a lot on HP laptops. I also have some external side-swipe based readers with synaptic (previously validity) based readers.

The good thing is these are match-on-host, so you can also use them with a server-side biometric deployment as well as Windows Hello (for Business or regular).

Have you tried using a USB security key?

Would this be the simplest/cheapest way to add a fingerprint sensor for Windows Hello for grandma? Anything standalone for under $25 or the USB plug style?

It is probably the cheapest, but it may not be the easiest given the mouse integration.

I am not sold on how easy it would be having it integrated into the mouse, but if she has a laptop then for that use case it may make the most sense.

This is one of the readers I use every day, but you may need to install the driver for her manually - https://www.amazon.com/BIO-key-Ec...ics&sr=1-6

I have a mix of the host-on-chip readers like https://www.amazon.com/Fingerprin...ics&sr=1-8 and they tend to automatically install the drivers. The issue is since the sensors are so small the authentication is spotty. I find that I need to re-register my fingerprint every couple of weeks where-as the ecoID, SecuGen, or Validity/Synaptics readers just work.

But, they are spotty at best and seem to have a high rate of failure.

If you have a Yubikey 5 and Windows 10 19xx or greater you should be able to use it with Windows Hello. Windows Hello in the 19xx branch released a new credential provider (windows login) as well as certifying windows hello as a FIDO authenticator.

For grandma, reliability is the key, so the BIOkey looks best. Windows Catalog has the drivers too. Here's an odd item from the FAQ that might affect older folks:

Will the reader work if my finger is extremely dry?
Occasionally, those with extremely dry fingers, a condition that occurs more frequently with senior citizens, can encounter challenges reading their fingerprint. This is typically solved by moistening the finger with paraffin or any manner that adds a subtle amount of moisture to the tip of the finger.

So maybe the smaller sensor on the mouse would be less reliable than the larger sensor on the BIOkey.

Anyone happen to know if the Synaptics readers this mouse uses works with Digital Persona? Company is trying to find a cheaper/locally sourced reader over their pricey UareU scanners. Dell's version of this mouse didn't end up working.

Digital Persona and Synaptics are two completely different companies, but I suspect that you mean work with the server-side proofing capabilities that your company uses with the Dell mice?

In theory, yes, it should since both are match-on-host and an image is written to the file system for a biometric template creation. As long as that solution is using the windows biometric framework and/or supports the vid_pid then you should be good.

I can forego the lack of wireless because of the fingerprint feature, but the lack of forward/backward buttons is a travesty in today's world.
