2023May8Windows_ALogging in to your Windows 11 computer can be a hassle, especially when you have to remember and enter a complex password every time. Windows Hello is a solution to this problem, as it allows you to log in with a simple biometric authentication method such as facial recognition or fingerprint scanning.
Biometric access used to be the stuff of sci-fi movies, but Microsoft has turned it into everyday reality for Windows 10 and 11 users. Thanks to a feature called Windows Hello, users can now log into their devices via face, fingerprint, or iris scan, or PIN code entry.
Data loss is a bigger concern than ever nowadays, as cyberattackers are getting creative with their breaches and exploits. So it’s a smart choice to add layers of security — such as biometrics authentication — to make your data as difficult as possible to steal.
Just like in sci-fi movies, Microsoft’s biometric logins can now recognize your face, fingerprint, or eyes when you attempt to access your device. Here’s everything you need to know when setting up Windows Hello.
