Log on with facial recognition software

Passwords are so 1990s. Fingerprint recognition is better, but boring. Now you can use facial recognition software to log onto your Windows computer (Windows 7, Vista or XP). KeyLemon uses your web cam to make sure the person sitting at your computer is really you. Face doesn’t match the one in the database? It takes a photo (so you’ll know who was using your system when you do get back) and then goes into hibernate mode. It’s a cool idea, but may not be fool-proof. I wouldn’t depend on it as my only authentication method, but it could add an extra layer of security and more important, it gives us a taste of what’s sure to be coming in the user authentication space in the future.  Read more about it here:
