What is Windows Hello?
Windows Hello is a new feature in Windows 10 that brings biometric security; with just your presence.
This eliminates the need to sign in with typing passwords.
You can now sign-in to your favorite devices, apps or services with the power of Microsoft and Tobii.
How does it work?
This is where Tobii comes into play with our eye tracking technology. The Windows Hello biometric functionality relies on images provided by Tobii’s sensor to work with Microsoft face recognition algorithms.
Built into Windows 10, these algorithms determine the identity of the user, making it possible to log in securely to Windows devices. Tobii’s technology makes it possible for Windows Hello to work in a variety of lighting conditions, even in the dark.
