    Facial Login for Windows8.1


    Is there a good lite software that can help me login to my windows8.1 account using my webcam?

    I used the following and didn't like:
    Keylemon (no permanant protection in free version, plus visually bulky)
    luxand blink (no support for windows 8.1, almost corrupted my logon)

    Usually software like that, and I've seen it recently, is provided by the maker of the computer, Lenovo for instance has it.

    There may be a 3rd party package you can buy, but it would possibly depend on your Motherboard's TPM (security) module, so if you do not have one, you will not be able to do it. Most new Motherboards have one, if you can see it in the system BIOS, then you have it, and you can try to find a security suite. You just have to googol for it, I have seen one recently But i neglected to bookmark it, sorry.

    As a fair warning, the Lenovo software that does this is part of the system. Your USB cam is in itself a 3rd party device, and the drivers for it probably do not activate until the system is booted, if it were a laptop with a built in cam, maybe the drivers activate during boot. You would see the Cam light go on. It would depend on what it is, I think Macbooks can turn on the cam, and the Lenovo's can. You would see the cam light turn on right before log in.

    As I mentioned above, I have used various third party apps that work, and also I know that they are not very secure, I just want them so that people who do not have enough knowledge about computers stay away from my laptop. thats all.

    Why not use a fingerprint login ? It should be present on most recent laptops.
