USB To 3-Pin Cable for S$1.56 and a USB To 4-Pin Cable for S$1.41 from a shop in Shopee called ashionmango.sg. Shipping to Singapore is an additional S$1.00. This is the cheapest USB to 3-Pin/4-Pin cables that I have found.
I like this cable because of the included on and off switch. It is much easier for me to use the switch than plugging in and out the cable.

PQI My Lockey USB Fingerprint Reader from Amazon Singapore for S$39.49. Shipping is free because I am an Amazon Singapore Prime member and combined with other orders to make it more than S$60.
As a best security practice, I have been using a different password for different sites. To avoid typing in complex passwords every time I am logging to Windows, I have been using a
PIN. PQI My Lockey USB Fingerprint Reader – Packaging Front
