With our Windows 10 launch fast approaching we’re excited for you to say “Hello” to Windows Hello. You may remember we introduced you to Windows Hello back in March. Windows Hello is biometric authentication that provides you instant access to your Windows 10 devices*. Simply show your face or use your fingerprint to login to your new devices running Windows 10 and be immediately recognized and greeted with a smile. Rest assured that the most secure authentication method is your presence.
Windows Hello is more convenient than typing a password, you’re greeted by name as it lights up in recognition, providing a faster and more secure way to log in, because you are the password.
We’re really excited about taking another step with Windows 10 to make computing more secure, and more personal, with Windows Hello. If your computer has an Intel Real Sense 3D camera you will be able to take advantage of Windows Hello once you’ve upgraded to Windows 10. Visit this page to get a full list of Windows 10 devices that will support Windows Hello at launch. Additional devices that take advantage of the Windows Hello feature will hit the market in the coming months.
*Windows Hello requires specialized hardware, including fingerprint reader, illuminated IR sensor or other biometric sensors.
