Windows 10 will support biometrics to log in to remote desktops

Microsoft has now pushed the Windows 10 Preview Build 17713 preview to fast rink channel and jumps channel users participating in the test program.

This update Microsoft has begun testing biometrics for logging in to remote desktop sessions, but this feature is likely to be available only to enterprise customers.

Windows Hello authenticated remote desktop session:

The prerequisite is that the remote computer has joined the AAD or AD directory to use Windows Hello for Business for biometric verification.

When starting a remote desktop connection, passwords are used for authentication by default. To simplify the user authentication process, Microsoft added new biometrics for this update.

Remote Desktop Biometrics

This feature does not support the use of a four-digit PIN for security reasons. This verification method will be used automatically after the initial biometric verification.

Of course, if biometric authentication doesn’t pass, you can use the alternate login method, that is, a traditional password or a security card to log in.
