**All About the Fingerprint Reader

The OTC Fingerprint Reader is OnTheClock.com’s fingerprint login option. With this option, the employee places their registered finger(s) on the reader to securely log them in to punch in or out for the day. This option eliminates buddy punching and also requires the employee to be at the company facility to punch in or out, thereby eliminating the chance that they will punch in or out at home or on the road. The Fingerprint reader replaces the employee's User Name and Password and still requires the employee to click on the Punch In/Out button to actually punch in/out. The employee will still have the availability to view their time cards as well as review and request PTO. 


The OTC Fingerprint Reader Option gives the cost, the requirements and where to purchase a Fingerprint Reader. The only Reader that works with our system is the Digital Persona U.are.U 4500 Fingerprint Reader.

Where do I find my Account Key


If you need to have a Manager register employee fingerprints.

If you need to have a manager register employee fingerprints but you do not want to give them Admin Rights to the system. You can create an additional administrator and just give them the password but not the email address. That way they have access to add employees to the fingerprint reader but do not have full administrator access to your account. They only need an admin password to access the fingerprint reader software.


Can I use more than one fingerprint reader?

You can use as many fingerprint readers as you need for your company's needs. You can only use one per PC or Tablet. You just need to register the employee's fingerprint on one reader and it is available for all of them.
