Microsoft's Windows 10 introduced some new features in the security department, namely fingerprint, eye and face recognition. The Australian decided to perform a series of tests using identical twins to see if Windows Hello would confuse the two siblings due to their incredible similarities.
One twin would setup a Windows account on a Lenovo Thinkpad running Windows 10, securing the profile with face recognition. After ensuring Windows Hello successfully identified them to login, the second twin tried to trick the system to see if they could gain access. It proved to fare well throughout testing, utilizing the Intel RealSense camera setup.
Of the six sets of identical twins, Windows Hello only failed once, refusing to login twins Isabelle and Natalie Brown altogether. But not once did Windows provide access to the incorrect twin. So, should you have an identical sibling, or feel concerned that a family member may be able to trick Windows to log into your account, fear not as Microsoft should be able to tell the difference.
