Your webcam is a powerful tool with many uses. Besides video conferencing, you can also use it to take profile photos and control music on your PC or Mac.

Now, let’s explore another use for your webcam – face recognition. With a webcam and KeyLemon software, you can log in to your computer quickly and easily. The basic version of KeyLemon is free.

Follow these steps to log in to Windows using your webcam.

Step 1: Download the basic version of KeyLemon from here (a Mac version also exists) to your hard drive. It works on Windows Vista, 7, or 8. Step 2: Install KeyLemon. The process is quick and simple – just a few clicks on Next buttons and you’re done.

Step 3: Install and run the app.

Cool Tip: Make sure your Windows user account has a password before setting up the app.

Step 4: Create your face model. Connect your webcam to your computer. While doing this, make sure your face is in front of the camera and inside the shape on your screen. The green tick will indicate success. Click “Create a new face model” when finished.

Step 5: Next, check your face model. Look into the camera and see if the slider is close to fully green. The more green you see, the more likely it is for the app to recognize and log you in.

Step 7: Try out your new login option! Use the Windows key + L key combination to lock your screen and see if it works. Just sit in front of your camera and you should be logged in very quickly. It has worked so fast that I barely had time to take the picture below. If it doesn’t, you can always log in using your Windows password.
