Is the actual fingerprint of each person recorded?

No. Procare does not record the fingerprint of anyone. Instead a mathematical calculation (algorithm) is used, based on a unique set of data points within the fingerprint, to identify each person. In other words, a number (a value) is assigned to represent each fingerprint.

Can anyone else access the fingerprint information?

No. The print itself is not stored. Procare knows how to interpret the value assigned to represent each fingerprint in order to confirm that an authorized person is checking the children in. This is the only purpose of the fingerprint reader.

Does a fingerprint reader help prevent identity theft?

Yes, because only the person to whom the fingerprint belongs can check their children in and out. No one can pretend to be you since they cannot have the same fingerprint. Although a password or PIN can be lost or stolen – a fingerprint cannot.

Are there concerns about germs or hygiene?

No more so than opening a doorknob, using a keyboard, handling money or any other task where a surface is touched by multiple people. The fingerprint reader may be easily cleaned – see Use & Cleaning Instructions.
