Abstract: This paper x-rays how ATM security can be checked and improved by using finger Recognition.This was achieved by sending fingerprints to finger sensor which converts patterns and signals from analogue to digital form through an analogue-todigital converter(ADC).In this paper,a programming language known as VisualDsp++ was used to enable fingerprint sensor to generate data.The data gotten from an individual is stored in the database of the system, if a customer of a particular bank comes to withdraw money from the ATM machine,it crosschecks whether the owner’s data stored in the database matches with the data of the person that wants to make withdrawal,if it matches with the one in the database,access is granted to the preson,if it does not match, access is denied from the person who wants to make withdrawal
