Log into your PC with your face or fingerprint with Windows Hello in Windows 10/11

  • There is a way you can sign into your computer by the time your bottom hits the chair without typing a single password.
  • It is called Windows Hello.
  • It’s biometric authentication and here’s how it works.
  • As you are looking at your device, you awaken it.
  • It starts looking for you.
  • Right now on my screen,
  • you’re seeing Tracey Morrison, my demonstration person.
  • But once I click on my name, the computer is going to begin looking for me, and then it will immediately sign me in. So take a look.
  • There’s Windows Hello, Welcome back, and within seconds, I’m signed into my personal account without any password.
  • Now, you might be wondering “Well goodness gracious.
  • This opens up a whole bunch of questions.”
  • I want to run through some of the most common ones with Josh.
  • So you may be thinking to yourself “That’s really fast, but is it secure?”
  • And the answer is an absolute yes.
  • Windows Hello is incredibly secure.
  • It uses the infrared camera on your Surface device to read things like minute facial movements, it has to recognize body heat.
  • You have to be a living, breathing person; no, “Weekend at Bernie’s” style antics or a photograph. That’s not going to work.
  • Yes.
  • In our testing, it also can tell the difference between identical twins and it has a lower false-positive rate in our testing than a fingerprint reader as well.
  • So it’s incredibly secure, very precise.
  • It’s doing things like measuring the depth of your eyeball socket to the tip of your forehead, the exact distance between your eyes, these types of measurements.
  • So, it’s never taking a single picture, not even when it’s first enrolled.
  • It is always ever just measuring your face.
  • Now Microsoft, we do businesses with governments all around the world and we allow our employees to sign into devices with Windows Hello, especially the Surface devices with built-in cameras.
  • And whatever Surface device that you’re using, you’ll have that Windows Hello functionality built right in.
  • This is really great on a mobile device.
  • As you’re roaming the halls, you don’t want to have to fumble with an alphanumeric password, but don’t worry.
  • The same level of protection that you currently enjoy on your devices is still there.
  • If someone exits your organization, they’re still going to be unable to sign in to the device if they are no longer working here.
  • So whatever it is you’re trying to do on your device, you’ll be able to very quickly and securely sign in.
