Title: Controlling user access to electronic resources without password

Abstract

Described herein are devices and techniques for remotely controlling user access to a restricted computer resource. The process includes obtaining an image from equipment of a user, wherein the image includes an indication of an individual and an indication of a local environment. The individual is identified within the image to obtain an identification of the individual, and the local environment is determined as a predetermined local environment based on the identification of the local environment. Access to a restricted computing resource is facilitated based on the determining that the individual is the user and that the local environment is the predetermined local environment. Other embodiments are disclosed.
