The new Microsoft keyboard, which was officially announced last month, is now available for purchase. Modern Keyboard is an elegant Bluetooth keyboard that has a “hidden” fingerprint scanner.

In fact, the scanner is not exactly hidden because it is in close proximity to the right Alt key. But to use it, you’ll need to have Windows 10 installed to take advantage of Windows Hello functionality.

“Long and complicated passwords are a thing of the past with this beautifully designed keyboard. The fingerprint sensor is subtly hidden in a normal-looking key and uses Windows Hello to let you sign in instantly and more securely with one simple press. It can be used wired or wirelessly with Bluetooth.”
