There’s nothing new to learn with FaceGuard. In fact, humans are born with an extraordinary gift to differentiate faces. A seven week old baby can recognize its mother through the glass of the nursery even though she is surrounded by other ladies of about the same age and build. The newborn can’t smell, feel, hear or taste the mother – but their eyes go right to her.
And at the other end of life’s journey, evidence indicates an alzheimer’s patient may have long forgotten your name and who you are… but they know friend or foe. They trust those they recognize. That crucial species survival mechanism guarantees extraordinary online security.
Language barriers are eliminated as well. And any age, young to seniors, can use FaceGuard instantly. Sighted folks see a grid/matrix of strangers and easily tap the familiar face We encounter a group of people and instinctively pick out pals. Bonus: we enjoy an endorphin rush because playing the FaceGuard enhanced access game ensures we’re a winner.
An unlimited number of known photos can be added to a user’s encrypted cache of familiar faces. That way the refreshed, randomly arranged FaceChallenge is always a delightful surprise as well as another fun opportunity to quickly spot a friend or family member in the crowd.
Moreover, when you haven’t seen the face in a number of years or the person has passed on or moved away, the emotional feeling is exceedingly powerful. Faceguard is both lightly uncomplicated and deeply nostalgic. Simultaneously, the odds against unauthorized access can exceed eight billion to one. Disclaimer: a carefully generated string of upper and lower case letters, plus numbers and symbols can result in truly crazy degrees of key space and entropy. But, honestly… do you know anyone who prefers complex passwords to people?
