KeyLemon for Mac

CNET Editors' review

Beyond passwords, more computer users want more protection for their systems. KeyLemon for Mac provides an additional, functional layer of protection through facial recognition to unlock a computer.

Available as a free trial version, KeyLemon for Mac provides a basic level of functioning, but additional features may be unlocked with license upgrades. The program's native installer worked well and walked us through the setup and initial recognition procedure. The interface was fairly intuitive and spelled out the functions available. Some of the menus may be difficult to interpret for novice users, but those familiar with security software in general should not have a problem deciphering them. In the trial version, the program allowed us to require facial recognition before starting or unlocking the computer. For an additional $19.99, you can set the computer to recognize when you move away from the Webcam, and lock the computer. A complete upgrade for $39.95 allows tracking of those who attempt to use the computer. The facial recognition worked well and quickly. It also could distinguish between users, provided the lighting was consistent. Paid upgrades purportedly solve the lighting issue, but this was not tested. The program did operate smoothly and without glitches or bugs.

While the free version's features were basic, those seeking enhanced security and willing to pay for the upgraded licenses may find KeyLemon for Mac beneficial.

    "Good security recognition app with the password"

    April 8, 2014  |   By maharith09

    Version: KeyLemon 2.6.5

    Pros

    - Easy to use
    - Beautiful lock interface
    - Ability to create many profiles based on the lighting and facial conditions
    - Easily to recognize user face
    - Ability to set up time to lock screen if not in use

    Cons

    - Price little bit overrated, 19.95$ for bronze and 39.95$ for gold and if you update to gold package right away, you have to pay for both!
    - the new version still have few screen lock glitches while waking up, hope this can be fixed soon.
    - high security levels make it so sensitive in recognition, that made you shift to normal security.
    - full screen mode need few enhancements with less cam turn ON/OFF.

    Summary

    Overall good security software to use and ease the easiness in using mac, but still have to undergo these issues in the "CONS" until they hear us and fix this problem, I know that the techs behind it are working very hard to overcome these issue but they need to be faster (especially with todays tech race). However, I recommend it to users want to try.

    "WAY TOO EXPENSIVE AND DOES NOT WORK WELL"

    August 17, 2013  |   By PDUBOKC

    Version: KeyLemon 2.6.5

    Pros

    NONE. I had to reset my basic facial profile over and over and over and over and over again.

    Cons

    Could you please see the Pros above? THERE ARE TONS OF CONS!
    COST!
    DOESN"T WORK!
    KEYLOCK ENGINE PREVENTS COMPUTER FROM RESTARTING EVERY SINGLE TIME!

    Summary

    DON'T BUY THIS!
