Microsoft is adding a Windows Hello sensor to its latest version of Windows 10, a new feature that lets people keep tabs on their device’s health and health-related information without having to enter passwords or enter their personal data.
Microsoft has been experimenting with a new version of the operating system called Windows 10 Mobile since March.
It’s the first version to incorporate a Windows 10 Hello sensor in its new OS, and it’s the latest iteration of the company’s Health app, which uses facial recognition to automatically recognize people using the new OS.
Windows 10 Home, which is the default operating system for Windows 10 phones, already includes a built-in Windows Hello system.
Microsoft said in its blog post on Wednesday that the new version adds an additional feature that allows users to scan their phones for “a small amount of malicious activity” when using the Windows Hello app.
The Windows 10 feature is available in Windows 10 for Windows Insiders who have signed up for a beta or Windows Insider Preview and have an account with a Microsoft account.
Microsoft will roll out the feature to all Windows Insoles, but it will be rolled out in stages over time.
Microsoft says that all Windows 10 devices will automatically get the feature, with the first batch of devices set to receive it in early 2018.
The feature works in conjunction with Microsoft’s own Windows Hello service, which allows people to sign in with a combination of their email address and a fingerprint, then use a facial recognition app to unlock their phone.
If a user is scanning with their fingerprint and email address, Microsoft says, it’ll show up in their Windows 10 Privacy & Security settings.
Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Pro support Windows Hello, but there’s no way to use it on devices that don’t have a fingerprint reader.
Microsoft says that while people may want to use the feature on their devices to make sure they’re not the one trying to access their phone’s health or health-associated information, it won’t necessarily prevent malicious activity.
Microsoft also says that people can opt out of the feature for the device.
