Microsoft’s Windows operating system powers millions of computers all over the world and the release of a new version of Windows is always an exciting news. Back in later July, Redmond released its much-awaited Windows 10 OS that came equipped with an array of new features.

With Windows 10, Microsoft has brought a new security measure called Windows Hello. This biometric authentication feature adds an extra security blanket over your mobile and PC devices.

Speaking at a press conference in Mumbai, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said that biometric security measures are the next step to achieve a better and nearly unhackable future.

He said, “One of the biggest security issues is passwords. One of the things that we are working on is a world where passwords are not going to be the ones that you know can get hacked but you really have other biometrics that really help us secure our computing interfaces.”
