NOTICE
 Microsoft has begun shipping peripherals with fingerprint technology licensed from DigitalPersona. Though using technology found in DigitalPersona products, Microsoft products are different from DigitalPersona and are not compatible. The following document outlines these differences.


* Background *

Microsoft recently found, through consumer research, that:
- Its consumers were frustrated with the number of passwords they have to remember
- Its consumers were looking for a convenient solution for logging into

Web sites, accessing information on the PC and switching between Microsoft Windows XP user accounts without the need to remember, enter multiple passwords.

As a result, Microsoft selected DigitalPersona as their partner to provide the appropriate technology and entered an agreement.
On September 8, 2004 Microsoft announced the results of that agreement ?enhancements to two existing Microsoft peripherals, and a new one. Microsoft introduced their fingerprint reader product line.
The product line consists of:

- Microsoft Fingerprint Reader
- Microsoft Wireless IntelliMouse Explorer with Fingerprint Reader
- Microsoft Optical Desktop with Fingerprint Reader
