Windows 10 with Windows Hello

Biometric authentication is coming! In Microsoft‘s Windows 10 with ‘Windows Hello,’ designed to make your computing experience more simple, personal and more secure.   Watch the video…

Windows Hello introduces biometric authentication – using your face, fingerprint or iris to unlock your device.

Biometric authentication can give instant access to your Windows 10 devices.

With Windows Hello, you’ll be able to just show your face, or touch your finger, to new devices running Windows 10 and be immediately recognized.  And according to Microshoft, not only is Windows Hello more convenient than typing a password, it’s more secure!

Our system enables you to authenticate applications, enterprise content, and even certain online experiences without a password being stored on your device or in a network server at all.

Dustin Ingalls, part of the Windows security team, said:

“The key is actually bound in hardware to my device, so the only way a hacker can use my identity is to actually steal the device. When you use Microsoft Passport with Windows Hello, not only does the attacker have to steal my device, but they also have to use my biometric—like my face, fingerprint, or iris—which is super challenging.”
