I own a Asus Maximus Hero VI

I'm about to buy PQI fingerprint reader to use it in Windows 10,with hello.

Now , I don't have a TPM module installed. There is a connector on the board for TPM module but I'm not sure which version it supports or if it supports the latest TPM 2.0 modules. Does it?

I'm a home user , do I need TPM module in the first place? What would I gain by adding one?
