Title: FINGERPRINT AUTHORISABLE DEVICE
Abstract:
A fingerprint authorisable device (102) comprises: a fingerprint sensor (130) for obtaining fingerprint data from a user's finger or thumb, and a control system (114), (128) for controlling the device (102). The control system (114, 128) is arranged to provide access to one or more functions of the device in response to identification of an authorised fingerprint and the control system (114, 128) further includes a fingerprint failure feature in which a non-fingerprint authorisation can act to at least partially replace the fingerprint authorisation such that the control system (114, 128) is arranged to provide access to at least some of the one or more functions of the device (102) when a user is identified via the non-fingerprint authorisation. The non- fingerprint authorisation requires an interaction with the fingerprint authorisable device (102) by the user, the interaction including one or more action(s) detected via the fingerprint sensor (130).
