    How to Remove Your Face from Windows Hello in Windows 10


    Windows Hello is a more personal, more secure way to get instant access to your Windows 10 devices using fingerprint, face, or eye recognition.

    Windows Hello, greets you by name and with a smile, letting you sign in without a password and providing instant, more secure access to your Windows 10 devices. Windows Hello introduces system support for biometric authentication – using your face, iris, or fingerprint to unlock your devices – with technology that is much safer than traditional passwords. You– uniquely you– plus your device are the keys to your Windows experience, apps, data and even websites and services – not a random assortment of letters and numbers that are easily forgotten, hacked, or written down and pinned to a bulletin board. Modern sensors recognize your unique personal characteristics to sign-you-in on a supporting Windows 10 device.

    This isn't working for me.

    Even though I turned off Windows Hello in Sign-in options screen and set "Automatically unlock the screen if we recognize your face to" "OFF".,
    when my computer is woken up, the camera light goes on, little camera icon appears on the screen along with the text " Turning on camera. Making Sure it's you. Couldn't recognize you ... use pin ..."



    So, Hello and use of camera continue to be on. They just stop recognizing my face.
    Do you knows how to _really_ turn Hello off?



    Thanks,

    Hello Marina, :)

    Double check to make sure that you do not have a face left to remove, then turn off both Windows Hello settings below that. When on the sign-in screen next, click on the Sign-in options link, and select to sign in using something other than Face.

    This doesn't work for me either. Pushing the button seems to do nothing. Windows still tries to recognize my face whenever it wants to verify identity. In practice it doesn't recognize me, which basically means I'm being greeted by an error message every time I open my laptop, which is pretty lame. But afaict it still has a face model that it's trying to use, despite pressing "remove" and also turning off "automatically dismiss the lock screen if we recognize your face".

    Hello Abram, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    Have you already tried to "Improve recognition" to see if that may help it work better?
