I have seen in media reports that it’s available to unlock device by something like pictures

or captured image when Galaxy S8/S8+ device is locked by Face recognition. Do you have

any plans to improve Face recognition feature not to recognize something like pictures or

captured image?

 

 

 

 

When using face recognition to unlock your device, you phone could be unlocked by someone or

something that looks like your image and recently Samsung had applied internal software algorithm

to improve Face recognition.(This will be available with a software update)

 

Regarding the possibility of the exceptional cases where the current detector can mistake fake image as a live input, the decision logic was updated to strengthen the anti-spoofing function and this will be applied on your device with software update.

   

However, due to usage of only a single frames from camera there are technical limitations in coping with all spoofing attempts such as high-resolution images . Thus we do not recommend the usage of

face recognition for the high security authentication applications. And, Face recognition is less

secure than Pattern, Pin, or Password, we recommend to use the Iris recognition,

Fingerprint recognition, Pattern, Pin, or Password to lock the device.
