The Blink! freeware program from developers Luxand, lets you use your webcam to log into your machine using your face as a biometric security device. Yep, just stagger over to your laptop in the morning, and the software will scan your mug and give it the all clear to fire up your computer. Sure beats sliding a finger over a reader eh?
Once you’ve installed the package, just a few minutes enrolling your face and adding a password will train the software, after which all you need to do is sit down and look into the camera for the program to grant access to your locked machine. Holy Tom Cruise Minority Report, Batman.
When your face is registered, you can log in to Windows hands down. Simply look into the webcam and you are logged in without any user name and password. You can log in by face when the computer is locked, when you resume it from the Standby or Hibernation mode and when the current user logs off and the new user attempts to log in.
