Microsoft recently added its biometric facial recognition system, ‘Windows Hello’ as an option to log into your Microsoft Account.
Windows Hello first appeared in the Lumia 940 and 950 smartphones, but later, the company decided to bring the biometric solution to Windows PCs as well.
I am pretty sure this is not new but Microsoft allows users to login into their accounts using #WindowsHello on #MicrosoftEdge. This is something I always wanted but I never knew it existed.
Although in my defense I just got a device that supports Windows Hello lol. pic.twitter.com/l49gvZgZ7W

And now that Windows Hello has come to Microsoft Account page, you’ll be able to log into Microsoft Account without typing the password. This works seamlessly with every internet browser available in the market right now.
Note, in order to log into Microsoft Account with the facial recognition system, your PC must have support for Windows Hello. Needless to say, you won’t be able to see Windows Hello as a login option, if your PC does not have the required setup.
Beyond that, you’ll also be able to use PIN and Security key to log into your Microsoft Account, if you aren’t a fan of biometric login system.
