Require Open eyes

for added security, it is recommended that you only allow the face to be unlocked with your eyes open. the feature is usually enabled by default on Samsung devices. if this is not the case or if the feature is not desired, it can be enabled or disabled in the security settings

Alternative look

Unlike the fingerprint sensor, facial recognition is somewhat problematic because, unlike fingerprints, our appearance can vary from day to day, and whether it's a three-day beard, glasses, hat, body jewelry, or other accessories, they can cause facial recognition to fail.

To counteract this we can add an alternative look.

Faster recognition

in the security settings of the Samsung device, the "Faster recognition" function is enabled for face recognition. this improves the speed of recognition but reduces security. this means that face recognition can also incorrectly be performed by a photo or video of the person. this can happen even if the function is disabled, but the risk is much lower.

Brighten screen

When the Samsung device is used in the dark, the screen is temporarily brightened to make the face easier to see, but the "brighten screen" function can also be disabled in the face recognition settings.

  2. Tap on Biometrics and security
  3. Tap on Face recognition
  4. Enter PIN/Pattern/Password
  5. Enable or disable Brighten screen

Stay on Lock screen

If face detection is enabled to unlock the lock screen, the Samsung device will by default stay on the lock screen when the registered face has been detected. A simple wipe is now enough to unlock the device.

In the security settings of the Samsung device, we can disable the option "Stay on lock screen" to go directly to the last screen used after unlocking.

Android 10 (One UI 2.0)
Step 1:  Open the  Settings
Step 2:  Tap on  Biometrics and security
Step 3:  Tap on  Face recognition

  2. Tap on Biometrics and security
  3. Tap on Face recognition
  4. Enter PIN/Pattern/Password
  5. Enable or disable Stay on Lock screen

Remove Face data

If we no longer need facial recognition or our appearance has changed fundamentally, we can remove facial data, thereby removing the biometric data (face) and deactivating facial recognition.

Android 10 (One UI 2.0)
Step 1:  Open the  Settings
Step 2:  Tap on  Biometrics and security
Step 3:  Tap on  Face recognition
Step 4:  Enter  PIN / Password / Pattern
Step 5:  Tap on  Remove face data
Step 6:  Confirm with  Remove
  1. Open the Settings
  2. Tap on Biometrics and security
  3. Tap on Face recognition
  4. Enter PIN/Password/Pattern
  5. Tap on Remove face data
  6. Confirm with Remove
