I have a Yoga730 15.6 2018 model which comes with a fingerprint scanner.
I'm using it to log in to Windows 10. It works great, and I love how easy and fast it is!
So.. I'm wondering if I could use the fingerprint scanner in any other way?
Like, to log in to websites? It would be amazing if I didn't have to struggle to remember what my password was in every website that I've ever logged in to.
Is there any application for this? Pls help me out. Any tips will be really appreciated.

You can do it, but only on websites that offer the option. I haven't seen any that do, at least not the popular ones.
Another option is 3rd-party password software such as OmniPass. Software such as this manages your passwords and can be configured to use the fingerprint reader to log in to sites. AIUI, the authentication is done on the local machine, then OmniPass sends the actual password to the site to log you in. This allows you to use random or computer generated passwords that are far more difficult to crack.
