Password replacement for Metro IE 10

    Question

  • I'm trying to support the following scenario.

    1.  Running Metro IE 10

    2.  Using a biometric fingerprint device that I've enrolled in (via WBF).

    3.  Previously used TrueSuite software where I've saved a user name/password (under desktop IE 10) for my Windows Live account.

    4.  Trying to use my fingerprint to authenticate and log in to Windows Live.

    Without support for plug-ins and biometrics under the Metro framework, we won't be able to support users without having to educate them on the limitations of the Metro interface.  This will create a very confused user experience.

  • Hi,

          Thank you for the feedback.  IE10 Metro explicitly does not support any plug-ins, so there is not any workaround for this scenario in the Metro IE.  However, IE10 non-Metro should support this right now.  I will be sure that we pass this information on to our IE team. Please let us know if you have any other scenarios of which we should be aware.
