Microsoft announces Windows Hello in China
It is interesting to note that Microsoft decided to unveil the security feature Windows Hello in China. The tech giant unveiled the feature during a Windows Hardware Engineering Conference held in Shenzhen, China. China is one of the countries that banned Windows 8 citing security reasons. The Chinese government even went to the extent of penalizing the government offices that were found using Windows 8.
Microsoft believes that the integration of biometric feature in Windows 10 will convince the Chinese government to adopt the latest operating system. Sources close to Microsoft reports that the tech giant is expecting to broaden its market in China through the Windows 10.
Being a country with world’s largest population and greatest number of internet users, China has all the potentials to turn out to be the world’s biggest Windows market. However, it has been remaining in nascent stage for quite some time due to disputes with the government.
Last year, Microsoft’s decision to abandon Windows XP had annoyed the Chinese government. About 80 percent of the government offices in China were using Windows XP for their daily tasks. China quickly reacted to the dropping of Windows XP support. It is currently financing third party tech support services that offer services to Windows XP operating system.
Microsoft assures its users that the integration of the new feature Windows Hello would make Windows 10 more secure and convenient. Microsoft’s Corporate Vice President Joe Belfiore says that it will definitely attract the users who wish to have increased security for their computers.
