Complete list of laptops that support Windows Hello

Which laptops support Windows Hello for secure authentication?

Windows Hello is a security system designed by Microsoft that uses biometrics to log you into your Windows 10 laptop. To take advantage of facial recognition, your device needs a special kind of camera that can scan your face, so not all laptops with webcams are compatible. However, most fingerprint readers, when given the right drivers, are compatible with Windows Hello.

The number of laptops that are compatible with Windows Hello continues to grow, and we compiled a list to keep you in the know. If you see an omission, be sure to let us know, and we'll add it.
