I have been using dell XPS 13 for more than a month now, I would recommend it any one who is looking for a fast light weight windows laptop and price is not a issue, as it comes really costly this time almost at the price of a macbook pro. Now one thing which I have been annoyed was the fast access face recognition which I see, every time I resume the laptop from sleep or when I boot up the machine as you can see in the image below.
As you can see in the image above, the login image with text saying “click here to enable face recognition” and even when I tried many times I was not able to configure it whatever I try to make it work, so I decided to get rid of this feature at all on my dell xps 13 ultrabook.
After some searching I found out the service in windows which is responsible to make this feature work. Now in order to disable this feature you will need to disable the startup entry first in windows startup items.
Removing Fast Access Face Recognition in Start Up
In order stop the startup executable to run when you start windows, go to Start Menu >> Run and type “msconfig” [ without quotes ] and press enter. Now under the startup tab you will find the FAMonitor and make sure its unchecked as shown in the image below.
Now you need to disable the service related to fast access face recognition as shown in the image below. It will be there as FAService as shown in the image below.
Now you will need to restart your computer, once you do these things mentioned above, if after restart you still see the Fast Access Face Recognition icon at windows login screen, then to get rid of this feature you will need to uninstall the related software from your computer as shown in the image below.
For this you will need to launch add remove programs which is Programs and Features under control panel as shown in the image below. Find the program entry with name face recognition and the Publisher name will be sensible vision.
Once you uninstalls the program this way, this feature will go away from every where on your dell laptop irrespective what ever series you are using.
