Luxand Blink! is a Windows system login utility which allows you to use your face as your login password. As your face is unique, it is difficult for others to login to your system without you physically being there.
The setup of Blink is pretty easy and only takes a few moments. For first-time users, you just login to your account with your normal Windows password and when running the application, it will record an image of your face from different angles and save it. Within moments, your identity is saved and from thereon, you may use Blink to login to your Windows-based system.
The default boot screen is Windows and when the webcam is connect, it will immediately recognize you; the Windows session will then start.
Overall, the detection ability of Blink is pretty good. Though in the end, we'd call this more of a novelty than a real security enhancement.
Installation note: During the first few steps of installing Luxand Blink! on your PC, you may be asked to install 'additional offers', all of which are unnecessary and we recommend declining.
