Microsoft's new Modern Keyboard has an integrated fingerprint reader

16 June 2017

Called the Modern Keyboard, Microsoft's new accessory is full-width with a numerical keypad, is slim at 19.3mm in height, and has a built-in fingerprint sensor where you would normally find the Windows key on the right-hand side.

The keyboard, in a silver and gray finish, works either wired or via Bluetooth 4.0, with automatic pairing out of the box when you first connect the cable. The big change is the addition of a fingerprint sensor for logging into Windows 10 via Windows Hello, meaning no more typing in passwords.

Microsoft has launched another keyboard (with a partner mouse) which is a spin on the Surface Keyboard that emerged last fall, although this variant adds a very nifty extra: a fingerprint sensor.

As one might have already noticed the Modern keyboard looks identical to the one launched along with the Surface Studio a year ago. The release of this keyboard is bit surprising as Microsoft released the Surface Keyboard recently for just $99. This feature will enable users to log in to any Windows 10 device using Windows Hello Fingerprint Authentication. It uses a rechargeable battery and is compatible with Windows 8-10, Windows 10 Phone, Android and macOS, as long as the device supports Bluetooth 4.0 or higher. While the keyboard is no means easy on pocket, it's said to be one of the best keyboards available in the market.

The keyboard requires a pair of AAA batteries for wireless operation which should give you 12 months of battery life.
