Entering your password is something that can be long and sometimes painful when you are in a hurry. Microsoft has therefore added a faster and more secure connection system in Windows 10: Windows Hello.

How to set up Windows Hello?
To start, you will need to go to the settings of your Windows computer. Then go to the "Accounts" and "Login Options" tab.
Once you arrive here, you will need to configure the facial recognition or any other connection parameter you want to activate. To do so, simply click on "Configure", click on "Start" and let your compatible webcam scan your face to save it.
After that, Windows will automatically offer you to add a PIN code, it can contain what you want, only numbers or also letters or symbols that is up to you.
Thus, Windows Hello is configured and you can enjoy the secure connection without a password.
It is also possible to connect with a fingerprint sensor, the way will be identical to easy recognition. Simply click on "Configure", "Start" and then follow the instructions by applying your finger to the sensor several times in a row, just like on your smartphone.
