Installing the package "fprintd" solves the issue.

sudo apt install fprintd

I suggest to add this in the documentation link above.

  Fingerprint authentication not available in 18.04

Status in ubuntu-docs package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  This page describes a feature not found in 18.04


  Starting from point 3. "Press on Disabled, next to Fingerprint Login
  to add a fingerprint for the selected account. If you are adding the
  fingerprint for a different user, you will first need to Unlock the
  panel." The option "Fingerprint Login" isn't available in the GUI (not
  displayed at all).

  The following steps to enroll fingers are therefore missing as well.
