Learn how to install the U.are.U driver software and link it to TimeDrop

The DigitalPersona U.are.U 4500 Fingerprint Reader is a USB peripheral perfect for individual desktop users, as well as multiple users in shared environments. Its compact design conserves desk space in enterprises, and its professional, modern appearance looks elegant in all business environments. The U.are.U 4500 Reader utilizes optical fingerprint scanning technology to achieve excellent image quality, a large capture area and superior reliability. A silicone coating allows it to read a wide range of fingerprints accurately and rapidly regardless of placement angle. The high-quality metal casing resists unintentional movement.

To use, simply place a finger on the reader window and the reader quickly and automatically captures and encrypts the fingerprint image before sending it to TimeDrop for verification. For superior user feedback, a red "flash" indicates that a fingerprint image has been captured.
