    Im hearing a lot of comments about Windows Hello, about this feature not working reliably for many. For the few days Ive owned the Lumia 950XL Windows Hello has recognized me 100% of the time. Its worked with and without my glasses. Its worked in total darkness. Its worked when I had just awaken with sleep in my eyes. Below is what I did during setup:

    I made sure that lighting was sufficient before setting up Hello. I was under an LED light that was pretty bright.
    Next, I made sure I was looking at the camera in the upper right corner of the screen. First I made sure my eyes were in view on the screen, and then a looked at the camera and not the screen. This was done without my glasses.
    Lastly, I made sure the camera screen surface was normal to my eyes line of sight. Picture this by imagining a laser coming from your eyes, hitting the screen surface and reflecting back into your eyes. I didnt want the screen at an angle.

    I only had to setup Hello once. Never had to refine the setup again. My wife had some issues and I explained how I think its recognizing me every time, which been probably about 40 - 50 times to date. She says Hello now pretty much recognized her every time.
