Galaxy Note8: Can I lock the device by face recognition?

Last Update Date : 2018-05-07

The Galaxy Note 8 has face recognition unlock feature.
 
However, when using face recognition to unlock your device, your phone could be unlocked by someone or something that looks like your image.
 
Regarding the possibility of the exceptional cases where the current detector can mistake fake image as a live input, the decision logic was already applied to strengthen the anti-spoofing function on Note8.
 
But 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 .
 
For high security authentication , we recommend to use the Iris recognition, Fingerprint recognition,Pattern, PIN code, or Password to lock the device.
