Most current log-in processes rely only on passwords and do not use biometric identifiers like e.g. fingerprints. Recently, some log-in systems that utilize the computer mouse to detect the fingerprint of the user have been introduced. However, in some environments no mouse is used. Therefore, it is proposed to deploy the display (e.g. monitor) to detect the fingerprint. This not only improves the security standard of the system, but it is also more user-friendly and faster. Furthermore, it avoids mistakes at the log-in, which cost a considerable amount of administrator time.
