Yesterday, I saw some chatter online stating that Chrome will be supporting fingerprint readers. However, when I opened my Chromebook, which is running the developer build, I couldn’t find this new security capability.  I spent some time looking around and found out where it is.  Here is a quick tutorial on how to set up the fingerprint feature.

Make sure that you are running the developer build.


  1.  Go in to your browser and type chrome://flags, and find the fingerprint feature.screenshot-2017-02-21-at-9-01-15-am
