Face detection logon howto

Now there is a face detection logon option on Oneiric, this is new to Ubuntu I believe, I decided to give it a try and captured my image during installation, but I don't see how I can use this feature, and how to change my 'mug shoot' huh ??

thats a pretty insecure feature, so you know. More of a sales gimmick than anything else.

Unless you're using some kind of laser-emitting camera that can measure depth, anyone can simply hold a photograph of you in front of the camera and it will allow them to log in.
