Think of all the passwords you have to remember on a daily basis. You have one to log on to your PC, one for your e-mail, one for your favorite social media site—and the list goes on. For many people, having a dozen different user names and passwords is normal. When you’re dealing with trying to recall all those log-ons, you’re bound to forget one or two.
We understand that you want convenience. That’s why we’ve developed a solution to help you simplify your digital lifestyle. Face Recognition is an innovative technology that allows you to log into your laptop, and all your important cloud services and websites, using a single sign-on. Because Face Recognition logs you into your websites using your most personal feature—your face— there’s no need to recall dozens of user names and passwords. It’s all done by simply sitting in front of the computer so the webcam can capture your image.
Face Recognition works with your laptop’s webcam. Launch the setup Wizard for HP ProtectTools from the HP Advisor toolbar and select “Face Recognition.” You will now be guided through a brief enrollment, during which the software takes sample pictures of your face. If the lighting is too dark—for example, if you’re on an airplane—the software will brighten your screen, turning your display to all white in order to light up your face. It will then recapture your picture, and log you on. Once the software builds a complete portfolio, it will no longer ask for re-enrollment.
Once the software has captured a few images, you’re set to go. You can log in to your laptop, as well as your favorite sites using Face Recognition for HP ProtectTools. At most websites that require a password, a window pops up over your browser and gives you the option to log in using Face Recognition—quick and easy.
From your Windows® log-in to e-mail access, from online shopping websites to social networking sites, and even travel sites, all you have to do is look at your screen and you’re in. Thanks to Face Recognition for HP ProtectTools, your face becomes your password.
