    When is msn messenger going to use biometrics for login?
    There are a range of fingerprint readers for pc's now and
    even mobile phone. Passwords are too weak. A user should
    be able to log into msn messenger and in the options there
    should be a feature to scan and UPLOAD the fingerprint to
    a msn server. Then the next time a user signs in all they
    need to do is type in their email address and click on a
    fingerprint button, scan their fingerprint using the
    reader and it should log into msn messenger.

    Also there are alot of microsoft keyboards with
    fingerprint readers now too.

  2. Greetings,

    You can have a local reader spit out the password for Messenger if you like. Don't think
    there are any plans to add such functionality to Passport.
