Facial recognition is less secure than other lock types such as fingerprint, PIN or pattern because there is a possibility that someone who looks like you or who uses an image of your face could unlock your phone, and is not recommended to be used as a security feature. In situations where a more secure unlocking method is necessary, fingerprint, PIN or pattern is recommended.  Facial recognition might not recognize you if there are major changes to your appearance, such as heavy makeup, facial hair changes, or glasses. If you usually wear glasses, you might want to keep them on while you set up facial recognition.


Terms and conditions apply.


Actual user-accessible internal memory is less than specified total memory due to storage of the operating system and software used to operate the device features, and other built-in applications, and may vary after software updates/ upgrades.
