How do I take care of the fingerprint reader?

The fingerprint reader, while tolerant of residues left on the reader, performs optimally when kept clean! To clean the reader:

  • Apply the sticky side of a piece of adhesive cellophane tape to the window, and then peel it away, OR

  • Gently dab the fingerprint reader window with a cloth that has been dampened with a mild ammonia-based glass cleaner, such as Windex. (Do not use paper!)

To protect against the risk of damage to your fingerprint reader:

  • Do not pour any liquid directly on the reader window

  • Do not use alcohol-based cleaners

  • Never submerge the reader in liquid

  • Never rub the window with an abrasive material, including paper

  • Do not poke the window coating with your fingernail or any other item, such as a pen
