Is a third party fingerprint reader safe?

Episode 1345 (37:41)

Jonathan from Scottsdale, AZ
Eikon Mini Fingerprint Reader

Jonathan has a Windows laptop and he wants to add a fingerprint scanner. The one he's looking at works with WIndows Hello, but there's no real branding. Leo says that chances are, one Chinese company makes it and then sells it to multiple companies who put their name on it. The good news is that it works with Windows Hello. Jonathan should check out the Eikon fingerprint scanner. It's the one he recommends, and it's only $20.

Is it safe? Leo says if it works with Windows Hello, it's certified by Microsoft and he'll be safe. If he really wants to be safe, Microsoft makes their own for $50.
