What is Face-out feature in CyberLink YouCam?
Applied to: YouCam 5.0

The Face-out* utility in CyberLink YouCam can auto protect your computer when your face exits the webcam image, by locking it, or by making it hibernate or sleep.
To set up and enable Face-out, do this:

  1. Select the Utilities tab and then Face-out. The YouCam Face-out Settings window displays.
  2. Place your face in the center of the webcam image frame, and then select the Capture button. CyberLink YouCam will detect your face and capture an image it will use for Face-out.

    • Enable Face-out when I am not in front of the PC: select this feature if you want CyberLink YouCam to display a pop-up window when your face leaves your webcam’s image. After the specified duration, CyberLink YouCam will perform the specified action to protect your computer.
