Face Unlock Issue

New Member

Just discovered quite a major issue with Face Unlock. My brother was holding my phone and it unlocked. We tried it a few times and he could unlock it consistently. We're not twins, I am a couple of years older than him. Have issues like these been reported before and is Samsung working to fix them? It's quite concerning that having a somewhat similar face allows access to my phone.

 

Edit- Turned on Intelligent Scan to solve the issue, but it's still concerning that the stand alone face recognition has this issue.

I've seen previous discussions about face unlock that it isn't 100% secure on most of the different phones that use face unlock.

 

This is why I also use intelligent scan with irisis too.
