Windows Hello provides a secure alternative to using passwords for security. The Windows Hello profile configures Windows Hello for Business for your Windows Desktop devices so end users can access your data without sending a password.

Protecting devices and accounts with a user name and password creates potential security exploits. Users can forget a password or share it with non-employees, putting your corporate data at risk. Using Windows Hello, Windows 10 devices securely authenticate the user to applications, Web sites, and networks on the behalf of the user without sending a password. The user does not need to remember passwords, and man-in-the-middle attacks are less likely to compromise your security.

Windows Hello requires users to verify possession of a Windows 10 device before it authenticates with either a PIN or Windows Hello biometric verification. After authentication through Windows Hello, the device gains instant access to Web sites, applications, and networks.


Windows Hello for Business requires Azure AD integration to work.
