I have a HP Envy M6 laptop running on Windows 8. After I upgraded to Windows 8.1, I realized that my fingerprint scanner was no longer working. The original fingerprint software was powered by Authentec and I have been looking everywhere for a driver that is supported by Windows 8.1, but no luck. Can anyone please help? I miss my one-swipe log-in.

You can download the driver for this laptop from the official website. There is also the possibility to download the HP Simple Pass software for latest versions of Windows. Access the page and download the package. First install the driver and then the software. When every was set up, open the application and configure the fingerprints to use with applications or for Windows login.
