Log In to Windows – With Your Face

log in to Windows with your face

If you have a webcam, you can make logging in to your Windows PC super easy.  Blink! lets you log into your account by simply looking into your webcam.  You have to install Blink! on your system, and then it will load with Windows at startup.  From there, it requires no action on your part.  Sit in front of your computer, and Blink! uses facial recognition to verify your identity, and log you in.

While we had no way to test their claims, the developers of Blink! say that the app has no false positives.  Still, if you place a premium on security, you may want to think twice before using it.

Blink does save your login history, so you can see a snapshot of everyone who successfully logs in to your PC.  That alone makes it pretty handy.

Blink! is a free program that works on Windows 7 and Windows Vista.  If you have a 64 bit system, make sure you follow the link on the Blink! site to the 64 bit version.
