Windows Hello facial sign-in feature gets animated in new Windows 10 promo video

One of the biggest new security features in Windows 10 is its ability to allow users to sign into the OS by using their face, eyes or finger. Microsoft has recently posted a new promo video showing how the feature, Windows Hello, works with some help from animated cartoon characters.

The funny clip points out that any personal info that is accessed by Windows Hello is stored on the Windows 10 device, rather than online, in order to make sure no one else can access the data. Windows Hello does require the use of approved cameras and fingerprint readers, including Intel's RealSense 3D camera. A number of laptops and all-in-one PCs on the market already have the camera installed so Windows Hello can be used immediately with the Windows 10 upgrade.

Thanks to Richard Hay for the tip!
