A fingerprint was a characteristic of one's digits that could be used to confirm one's identity via biometrics. They were included on identity tapes.

In 2153, Commander Trip Tucker used his thumbprint to enter the locked quarters of T'Pol. (ENT: "Rajiin")

A fingerprint match helped confirm the bodily death of Rao Vantika. (DS9: "The Passenger")

A Cardassian's thumbprint on a Kressari PADD was all the evidence Kira Nerys needed in 2370 to prove to the Chamber of Ministers a connection between Cardassia and The Circle. Once the thumbprint established the shocking truth behind The Circle, Minister Jaro Essa's attempted coup d'etat against the Bajoran Provisional Government immediately collapsed. (DS9: "The Siege")

Thumbprints could be used in lieu of signatures. In 2374, Luther Sloan threatened Julian Bashir with confinement in a maximum security cell for the duration of the Dominion War unless he put his thumbprint on a confession. (DS9: "Inquisition")
