    Microsoft keyboard that brings Windows Hello to any Windows 10 PC


    The Microsoft Modern Keyboard with Fingerprint ID and Microsoft Modern Mouse are now available for sale for $129.99 and $49.99.



    We’re excited to introduce you to the Microsoft Modern Keyboard with Fingerprint ID, a premium quality keyboard that brings the convenience and security of Windows Hello fingerprint sign-in to any PC running Windows 10, and the Microsoft Modern Mouse, a sleek simple complement to the keyboard.

    Windows Hello* helps enable people to move to a password alternative that gives you a fast, convenient and exceptionally secure way to unlock your Windows devices. Studies show more than 80 percent of people use the same password across multiple web sites, managing around 20-30 different accounts. We want to make sure that everyone running Windows 10 can experience the beautiful relief that comes from letting go of your written Pa55w0Rd5! So we worked to deliver a predictable, intent-driven and simple solution for someone to quickly and securely log into their PC, or authenticate an action.
    With the new Microsoft Modern Keyboard with Fingerprint ID, you can use your finger to sign into your Windows devices, and compatible apps**, with Windows Hello in less than 2 seconds – that’s 3 times faster*** than a password that you have to remember and type in.

    Microsoft Modern Keyboard with Fingerprint ID and Microsoft Modern Mouse

    On top of the convenience of effortless login, the Microsoft Modern Keyboard with Fingerprint ID gives you the flexibility of working wirelessly or through direct wired connection, as it features both a Bluetooth 4.0 and hardwire connection.

    The keyboard’s sleek, low-profile design and crafted aluminum top case bring an element of sophistication to any well-thought-out desk space. With 2mm key travel, the typing experience has been carefully crafted to maximize accuracy and typing efficiency. Unlike other solutions in the market today, the new Windows Hello enterprise-grade secure fingerprint reader has been subtly and beautifully designed as a regular key.

    Sold separately, you can also complete your desktop solution with the sleek, simple Microsoft Modern Mouse. As a visual complement to the keyboard, this mouse lets you set up your workspace to be both beautiful and practical.

    The raised arc of the Microsoft Modern Mouse supports your palm in a natural resting position, and reduces the tension on your risk, to keep your hand relaxed as you point and click. The metal scroll wheel feels solid under your finger, and you don’t have to worry about wires thanks to Wireless Bluetooth, plus it has up to 12 months of battery life.

    I bet these are nearly twice as much when in sale in UK as per usual ripoff.

    Nice feature but way overpriced anyway just to avoid entering passwords, especially as most likely used on desktops where secure password locking of a pc is often less of an issue for home users.
