[CentOS] fprintd needed?

On a 7.2 desktop system I see irregular attempts to start
the fingerprint authentication daemon "fprintd".

One of the messages is
"D-Bus service launched with name: net.reactivated.Fprint"

This fails as there is no fingerprint device.
fprintd.service is disabled.

Without a fingerprint device, is this software needed.
Yum removal (aborted) shows no packages dependent on fprintd.
