What can you do with a smart card reader?

I get it, you can use a smart card to log in, encrypt/decrypt etc. But is there anytning else you can use it for?

Thanks

Re: What can you do with a smart card reader?

Hi otheos,

Warm Greetings & welcome to Lenovo Community, happy to have you here.

 

As you said apart from authentication for logins, I didn't find any additional usage of Smart Card Reader.

 

I hope the above information helped you.

Please feel free to post in Lenovo Community Forums if you have any further queries!

 

Regards,
Prabhansh

Some countries allow to access taxes and other things with a smart card reader.

Some corporations use it for authentication.
