Are their any options to provide an easier login for the Surface Hub 2S?

For example, could we connect an external USB finger printer reader and login using that (after the user has logged in full once)?

 

Any other options other than having to completely type in a username/password each time?

Thanks for any ideas,
Richard

Hi Richard

Your users could use passwordless sign in on Surface Hub; https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/authentication/howto-authentication-password...

Fingerprint login will be available with Surface Hub 2X next year. It will require Windows Hello for Business to be enabled in your tenant.

Thanks
