Capturing the Fingerprint

To uniquely identify a user as the owner of the Nymi Band, the enrollment process captures a fingerprint image on the Nymi Band and stores it as a fingerprint template. The fingerprint template never leaves the Nymi Band. The Nymi Band can only be assigned to one individual.

To increase the success of the fingerprint capture process, ensure that the fingerprint sensor on the Nymi Band is clean and dry. Additionally, ensure that the finger that the user uses:

  • Is placed on the sensor only when prompted
  • Is lifted from the sensor only when prompted
  • Is placed on the middle of the sensor and covers as much of the sensor as possible
  • Is motionless on the sensor, while the sensor is capturing the image

Instruct the user to performs the following steps to create a fingerprint template on the Nymi Band.

  1. Read the information on the Capture Fingerprint page.
    The following figure provides an example of the Capture Fingerprint page.
    Figure 1. Capture Fingerprint
  2. Click Start.
    The following figure provides an example of the Capture Fingerprint page after the user clicks Start.

  3. When the Fingerprint icon to appear on the Nymi Band screen, as shown in the following image, place their finger on the fingerprint sensor and the fingerprint bezel that surrounds the sensor.

  4. When the LIFT FINGER message appears on the screen, lift their finger from the sensor and bezel.
    When the TOUCH SENSOR message appears on the screen, place their finger on the sensor and bezel.

    The following figures show the LIFT FINGER and TOUCH SENSOR messages.

  5. Repeat the steps to lift their finger and touch the sensor and bezel, as prompted.

    The fingerprint process evaluates and captures 15 images of the fingerprint, and then performs one of the following actions:

    • If the process determines that the images that were captured are acceptable to creates a template, then the Nymi Band creates a securely-stored mathematical template of the image, and then deletes the images.
    • If the process determines that the images that were captured are acceptable to creates a template, then the Nymi Band deletes all images and requires the user to repeat the fingerprint capture process.
    • If the process is unable to create a template after three attempts, the process fails and the Nymi Band displays See Admin. In this situation, you must perform a delete user data operation on the Nymi Band, disassociate the Nymi Band from the user in the NES Administrator Console, and then repeat the enrollment process with a different Nymi Band or different finger.
      Note: Nymi Band User Management provides detailed information about how to delete the user data ad disassociate the Nymi Band from the user.

When the Nymi Band fingerprint capture process completes, the Nymi Band displays . The next steps in the enrollment process depends on the settings in the NES policy. If the Band Label feature is enabled, users are prompted to assign the Band Label to their Nymi Band, as described in the next section.

If the Band Label feature is disabled, the enrollment is completed after policy settings are applied. The Nymi Band vibrates twice quickly and a success message appears.

Note: The Nymi Band does not vibrate if the Haptic Feedback on Nymi Bands is not enabled for the user or active group policy.
