I am very much satisfied with this software to lock and unlock my computer, I faced some problems while unlocking my computer under light and in dark, Even though This is cool software, I can’t complete relay on this software because it failed to stop others from entering into my computer. You can have a look at this below image (I blurred my Friends image as he didn’t allow me to share his image :-p ) all the images above are mine but the last image which was allowed to enter into my computer is my friends :-P. Hope KeyLemon will make their facial recognition algorithm more strong.
