We’re excited to announce that you can now use Windows Hello to unlock RoboForm on your PC! Simply use Windows Hello to log into RoboForm account using your fingerprint or a simple glance.

What is Windows Hello

Windows Hello logs you into your Windows devices using fingerprint, facial recognition, or an iris scan rather than a password. You can also store a PIN as a backup authentication method should biometric access fail.

While fingerprint login is present in computers running Windows 8, with Windows 10, if your computer prosses an Intel RealSense camera, you’ll also have the option to sign in via facial recognition.

Setting Up Windows Hello

Before you can set up Windows Hello in RoboForm, you’ll need to set it up on your Windows 10 device with compatible hardware.
