I tested out this facial recognition software today and I was pretty impressed. Its called LemonScreen and its made by KeyLemon. I’m not going to write a full review about it but just to highlight some points that I personnaly like and dislike.
That its free.
That it seems to work pretty well.
I can save time because I don’t have to type in a password.
Alternately, you can use a password to get back in.
Setup was amazingly easy.
Lack of features, I think it should be modularized so others can create plug-ins for it.
That it only works with one person. What if I want to add my whole family to it??
That there’s no feature for a two-factor authentication.
During my testing, after the 5 minute inactivity (that you can change), the screen locked. I sat down at my computer and immediately it unlocked. It didn’t do any “Please wait… analyzing” or anything stupid like that, it just unlocked and I was ready to go.
Wouldn’t it be nice if it was extendable, I mean if you could replace this for website you visit or to open documents and other things. For now, its a good tool to use on for an alternate login for Windows. I’d like to see a Linux and Mac version. I give it a 4/5 rating. You can read more about it here:
