Solved Windows Hello, am I looking at it wrong?

I guess it's meant for convenience, not security, since it will happily log me in when presented with a picture of my face on my iPhone? So anyone could snap a photo of me and then log in as myself?

I would like a video of that...as the infrared camera is used not the optical. It maps subdermal marks on your face, even identical twins are differentiated and can't log into each others account.

Ok, so the camera is better than I thought... what happened is that it recognized me from a rather off-center position, instead of the centered iPhone photo. I mistakenly thought it was the iPhone photo unlocking the device.

Sorry for the confusion, and thanks for clarifying.

Apparently Windows Hello also recognises common weapons such as guns and knives, so that if you are being forced to unlock your surface under duress then it will refuse.

Please dont try this at home!!!
