KeyLemon for Mac

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.
