By Shane McGlaun

UPEK announced today that it has preview software, meaning beta software, available for download that allows the UPEK Eikon Digital Privacy Manager to work on Mac computers. The Mac software isn’t available in retail packages at this time with the USB powered fingerprint reader. Mac users have to buy the $39 Windows version of the device and download the Mac software for the device to operate.

The download of the preview version is free and presumably the final version will be as well. Once installed Mac users can access any password protected website or application by swiping their finger across the fingerprint reader. Mac users can also unlock the screen saver and wake their Mac’s up from sleep with a finger swipe. You can download the Mac preview version of Protector Suite from the link below.
