There are a handful of security management solutions from LogMeOnce that allow users to log into a device with everything from biometrics and PIN codes to passwords. Now, the service is making it possible for people to securely log in using a photo. The 'PhotoLogin' feature is taken on a desktop computer and approved on a smartphone. Kevin Shahbazi, CEO of LogMeOnce says: "By default, PhotoLogin adds a third factor of authentication and lets users authenticate themselves to ensure that login information cannot be duplicated, making this feature one of the strongest layers of defense against hackers."
There's also a feature called 'MugShot,' which automatically captures an image of a person trying to access an account.
Considering that there are programs that run image-based authentication to authorize payments, this technology should give consumers the confidence to use the same tools to protect their computers.
