At the last Windows 10 conference, Microsoft gave details of its new login system, a method that would use different options based on fingerprint readers, facial recognition and iris recognition. Well, today is the day when the company shows the world Hello, a complement to the system that with the help of an infrared sensor, a fingerprint reader or an eye scanner will help maintain greater security on the user’s equipment. This will put an end to the need to enter a password every time we start the computer or have to make changes to the system, in the same way that we unlock a phone with a fingerprint.
But what happens when we don’t have a team with all this biometric paraphernalia? That’s where Microsoft Passport comes into play, a section that will be responsible for storing your personal password and for later verifying it when the system requires it by entering only a PIN code. All this data (including that captured by biometric sensors) will always be stored locally encrypted, and never on Microsoft’s servers.
