Face Recognition Software To Login [Windows]

Impressive it was to see in movies how some high-tech system will recognize a user’s face and present a personalized interface. Thanks to the advancements in technology, we see face recognition systems in some high-profile offices as well. But how about having a similar system on your laptop or PC, which would just scan your face and log you in?

Blink from Luxand is a software that does exactly that, and that too for free. The software uses your webcam to read a face, match it against a pre-stored collection of users and log in the right account. Slick and neat.


Once the software is installed, you need to to configure it, which involves having Blink learn your face and remember it. Setting everything up is simple and easy and does not take more than a couple of minutes. Once this is complete, the software simply goes down to the system tray where it will continue to run. You may also access settings from the tray icon.

Next time you’re logging into Windows, Blink with automatically enable your webcam and get ready for login. Just sit normally in front of the camera and you’re logged in, no passwords needed.

Blink’s recognition algorithm also compensates for changed hairstyles, glasses or contact lenses. It also keeps tabs on who logged in when, and stores a complete Login history with captured images to catch potential identity thieves, and to keep a record of activity. These are accessible through Settings.

Blink 2

Blink works with Windows Vista and 7 only, 32-bit versions. Its memory signature weighs in at approximately 30 MB. Although obvious, it also needs a PC-cam or webcam to work.
