When you enter Norway, the police can check that you are the same person who applied for a visa.
If you apply for protection (asylum) in a Schengen country at a later date, the authorities will be able to see that you have been granted a visa before.
The only people exempt from the fingerprint registration requirement are children under the age of 12, heads of state and their delegations in certain circumstances (check with the embassy if you fall under this category), and persons missing all fingers.
