Why Windows Hello Might Not Work in Windows 10 for You
Windows 10 brings many improvements ranging from performance, gaming to security. Speaking of improved security, Windows 10 brings a new feature called Windows Hello, but according to some users they can’t enable this feature to work.
Firstly, let’s explain what is Windows Hello. Windows Hello is a new feature in Windows 10 that allows you to use your Face to log in to your Windows 10 device instead of a password. In addition there’s a similar technology called Password that should do the same for websites, so you won’t have to type your passwords ever again. I
n addition to logging in to your computer using your face, you can login using your fingerprint or by scanning your iris. All of this sounds incredible on paper, but do we really need all this security as average users? This is the real problem of Windows Hello on Windows 10.
In order to use Windows Hello you will need compatible “depth” camera. Ordinary webcams won’t work, since they aren’t secure enough and they can be tricked with a simple photo. So for example, if anyone steals your laptop and has a photo of you, he can easily unlock it, and this is the main reason why Windows Hello requires “depth” camera.
These cameras will unlock your device only if you’re standing in front of it, and they can’t be tricked with a photo. As for these “depth” cameras, they will be made by Intel, and experts believe that they will be too expensive for regular PC users, and too expensive to include in cheaper Windows devices.
Windows Hello sounds great, but if you’re an average user you probably don’t need so much security. However, if you want to use Windows Hello on your Windows 10, be prepared to buy a special “depth” camera.
