Windows HelloÂ is a more personal, more secure way to get instant access to your Windows 11 devices using aÂ PIN, facial recognition, or fingerprint. You’ll need to set up a PIN as part of setting up fingerprint or facial recognition sign-in, but you can also sign in with just your PIN.
These options help make it easier and safer to sign into your PC because your PIN is only associated with one device and it’s backed up for recovery with your Microsoft account.
You canÂ set up facial recognition sign-inÂ with your PC’s infrared camera or an external infrared camera.
After you set up your face with Windows Hello, you can turn on or off to automatically unlock the lock screen when Windows Hello recognizes your face to sign in.
This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off automatically dismiss the lock screen if Windows Hello recognizes your face in Windows 11.
