“So it takes away the need for a password. It means, you may have seen a fingerprint reader, that uses Windows Hello and Windows 10 to unlock your PC. With Windows Hello, there are cameras, two of them, scans your face, sees who you are, recognizes you and unlocks your PC. There’s also capabilities to unlock website content so you don’t have to remember passwords all the time.
