[Galaxy S8/S8+] Device is locked by Face recognition. Is it true?

Last Update Date : Dec 20. 2017

When using face recognition to unlock your device, you phone could be unlocked by someone or something that looks like your image. As 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.

 
Additionally if you use your face as a screen lock method, your face cannot be used to unlock the screen when turning on the device. To use the device, you must unlock the screen using a pattern, PIN, or password you set when registering the face. Be careful not to forget your pattern, PIN, or password.
