Extending Windows Hello with trusted signals
Windows Hello brings us into the world of easy to use and deploy multi-factor authentication. As we look at what’s next with Windows Hello, the use of additional factors, possibly those from the environment (e.g. Are you on premises?; Is a trusted device nearby?), gives us an opportunity to provide additional convenience and security. With Creator’s Update, we introduced Dynamic Lock, which leverages proximity-based signals to automatically lock a PC when the user is not around. Learn more about Dynamic Lock, as well as the upcoming work we are doing to integrate trusted signals with Windows Hello.
