You can log into your Windows 10 laptop or tablet by looking at your webcam. Here’s what you need and how to set it up.

Step 5 – Click Improve Recognition for additional scans, or close the setup process. If you wear glasses or a hat, we recommend that you scan your face with and without them.
The next time you log in to Windows, the camera will be searching for your face.
