Lenovo is a maker of ThinkPad notebooks and laptops, some of which come with a fingerprint reader that is used to identify users of the system. Instead of typing identification to get into the system, users swipe their fingerprints. At times, this feature may not make sense to use, especially if you are allowing someone else to use your laptop. This feature is easily disabled.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Click the "Start" button in the left corner of your desktop.

  2. 2

    Scroll up and click "All Programs." Choose "Access IBM" and then choose "Fingerprint Software." Select "Control Center."

  3. 3

    Select "Settings" and then choose "Logon Settings." Remove the check mark next to "Replace windows logon with fingerprint protect logon." Remove the check mark next to "Power-On Security."

  4. 4

    Close the windows and restart your computer.
