After having a day of training getting ready for our Windows 10 deployment I'm suprised I've seen so little mention of what IMO is one of the best features of Windows 10. Windows Hello.
Once hardware starts coming standard with the required cameras (am advised by our account manager we should start seeing these builtin by the end of the year) I can see this becoming a really useful way of enforcing stricter security policys within the workplace without making it too difficult for the end users to want to use it.



For a more in depth look at Hello I recommend watching module 10 of this MS Virtual Acadamey on Windows 10
https://www.microsoftvirtualacademy.com/en-us/training-courses/getting-started-with-windows-10-for-it-professionals-10629

To those that worry about using the camera to authenticate, Look at this screenshot from the above MVA. The left image being what is used to authenticate windows, the right is a photo from the camera.

Ah, but will it work with a decapitated head?


I think this is a great idea, less reliance on passwords is great.

I've been using my fingerprint reader for ever. It is super awesome, unfortunately it was the first thing cut on any non-business model.

This looks cool - provided the hardware support comes across the non-top end models.

Every fingerprint reader out there today that has Windows Biometric Framework drivers for Windows will already work with Windows Hello in Windows 10

So you get your target completely smashed and drag them to the computer :)

More serious note....  does it recognize changes in faces, such as weight loss/gain over time ? A nose job ?

There are a variety of devices shipping with the camera hardware already and more due in the October/November timeframe

I have a Windows Hello camera setup for login in the Microsoft Wellington & Auckland offices if anyone wants to come in for a demo or play

It allows for changes in facial hair / glasses etc so I assusme it will however I was advised that it needs to be slow changes. i.e if you get into a fight and have a black eye it probably won't let you in.

My HP laptop has a fingerprint reader and I have the drivers installed. It works with HP Security Client but I'd rather use the built-in Windows 8.1 security. But Biometrics is not in my Control Panel - how do I get it in so I can rely on Windows instead?

no idea about Windows 8.1 sorry, upgrade to Windows 10 where "it should just work"

Let say if I am in front of the computer, got up and left to make tea.

If someone came to the desktop within 30 seconds, will it change user if it detects another person?

So I reckon the above will be a Surface 4 feature. ; )

Back to the topic. Does Hello support iris authentication and will additional hardware be required for that above a built in HD camera?

Windows Hello supports Facial, Iris and Fingerprint

Yes a special IR camera is needed like Intel Realsense F200, you cannot just use a normal RGB webcam.  Adds less than $100 to cost of device.
