Microsoft wants to turn you into a walking password
What is it?
Microsoft’s new biometric-authentication technology, which lets you sign into Windows 10 using your eyes, face and fingers. It recognises unique physical characteristics, such as your iris pattern, fingerprints and facial features, thereby saving you from the tyranny of passwords. When you sign in, you’ll be greeted with a reassuring smiley face and a friendly ‘Hello’ (see image – Terry Myerson is Microsoft’s Executive Vice President of Operating Systems).
