Luxand Blink! 2.4
The tool’s aim is to provide an enhanced security mode compared to the traditional way of setting up a password, as the only way to access your computer is to pass the face recognition test.
It features an advanced technology that lets you log in regardless of different lighting conditions and changes in your personal appearance (e.g. different haircuts, beard, moustache, glasses, contact lenses).
Registering your face
The program offers support for a built-in wizard that offers a step-by-step approach when it comes to configuring the application so you can log in to Windows with a simple glance at the monitor.
Firstly, you need to register your face by looking at the monitor and moving your head from left to right. The process is accomplished via your webcam. Secondly, the password of your account needs to be entered in order to finish the setup.
Other handy features
Luxand Blink! lets you pick the desired webcam and run the utility at Windows startup. A smart feature bundled in this tool allows out to check out the History panel for viewing and saving photos of people who have attempted to log in to your system. Additionally, you may view and export your own login photos.
What’s more, you can opt for a High Convenience mode where the tool learns your facial appearance each time you log in or High Security, delete your face templates (once data is removed you cannot log in to Windows using the face recognition technique), as well as enable or disable the face recognition mode.
How it works
Each time you log in, the utility automatically registers your face without having to type anything. You are simply required to look at your webcam, and the app automatically provides access to your computer without using your username and password. Plus, you can use the app with one or multiple users.
An overall outstanding software product
All in all, Luxand Blink! mixes up an intuitive interface with several handy configuration settings in order to provide a secure way for helping you log in to your Windows account by simply looking into a webcam.
