A thread on Google's Chromium code repository suggests the feature is being built into future Chromebooks.

Google appears to be planning some added security for upcoming Chromebooks.

The company s Chromium code repository mentions a fingerprint sensor for Chrome OS, as first spotted by Chrome Unboxed.

Led by Apple, Samsung, and others, fingerprint sensors are currently the most popular—not to mention fastest—method of biometric authentication.

Windows 10 PCs also use biometric authentication via Microsoft s Windows Hello feature.

Microsoft favors facial recognition and retina scanning in its Windows 10 devices, but it also supports fingerprint scanning.
