Windows Hello is a security system designed by Microsoft that uses biometrics to log you into your Windows 10 laptop. To take advantage of facial recognition, your device needs a special kind of camera that can scan your face, so not all laptops with webcams are compatible.
However, most fingerprint readers, when given the right drivers, are compatible with Windows Hello. For more read: Every Windows Hello Compatible Laptop
