Windows 10 is the most secure Windows that we've ever built. From the first time you boot up your device through its supported lifetime, you're covered by enhanced security features that help protect against viruses, malware and even phishing attacks.
Windows Hello recognises you out of all the others. So you – and only you – can unlock your device with a look or a touch*.
This method is more personal, which is precisely what makes it more secure. And, with no more login passwords to slow you down, you can quickly get right into what you want.
*Windows Hello requires specialised hardware, including fingerprint reader, illuminated IR sensor or other biometric sensors
