If your phone had a facial recognition feature, would you use that instead of a password/fingerprint?
My iPhone X has it instead of touch ID and I must say it works very well.
Honestly really stupid. You realize anyone can access your personal information?
It’s on my computer, it works 10% of the time. It easier to just type in the password, rather then look at the screen different ways hoping it will work.
I will when my new iPhone X arrives!
It really requires no effort. I was sceptical at first but happy with my new phone. Good thing no ones making you get one 👍🏻
Password. Facial recognition is way too intrusive. Reminds me of Demolition Man, where Warden Smithers got his eyeball cut out by Simon Phoenix.
I would use it. Nothing more annoying than washing and drying my hands and my iPhone doesn't recognize my thumbprint for a few minutes.I have to resort to the 1800's way and enter my password. 😭
I tested it out once and all I needed to do to bypass the security was hold up a photo of myself to the camera and it unlocked, really week security as far as keeping people out of your phone
Not on iphone x
Phal ... couldn’t thieves just lift your finger prints off the rotary dialer on your phone?
I don't have a password on mine, slows me down
But you have a right to it..
No, I'm sticking with password. Nobody ever guessed my password. I don't see why I'd have to hassle myself in order to fix something that isn't broken.
How old of a phone was that.. no modern phone with facial recognition or iris scanning would be fooled.
Typing this from my iPhone X and the facial recognition is fantastic.
It does and I do. It’s great
My phone (Galaxy S8+) has iris scanning and I absolutely love it.
Do they even work in the dark?
Much rather use a password. I try to not look at myself in the camera now as it is lol
Mine has that, but I prefer the pattern unlock.
Someone with the right technology could use the geolocation data of your photos to find your home address. I don't have any sensitive info on my phone either, but I have a pattern lock that's quick to open one handed without looking on both phone startup and standard unlocking. The startup lock will wipe my phone if it's entered incorrectly three times in a row, so that's nice.
*Alcerus has fled*
Iphone x does
...I could see my kids accidentally erasing my phone repeatedly with that stuff.
That’s a pretty broad brush you’re using. Apparently you don’t have your bank account, credit cards, Apple Pay and Pay Pal on your phone. But I see how it can work without being locked, much easier to access.
Probably not. So far reports are that it is noticeably slower than the touch sensor, and having to look at the phone just to unlock it doesn’t make much sense. I'd try it, but I don’t see any benefit to it at this point.
My girlfriend has the iPhone X and it seems to work pretty well.
I have an iPhone X now...so, yeah! Pretty much!
I️t does, and trust me, it’s way easier than anything else.
I got the Samsung Galaxy S4 when it first came out. It had facial recognition and i had to trade it in because it recognized my twin 😬
Same here. Lock screens are a hassle and a waste if time.
i was born right before 9/11. i have no privacy anyway
Robert ... your claims are the childish drivel to be expected of irrelevant android users. Your fallback to instant victimhood secures your irrelevancy as a leftist millennial who couldn’t make a valid assertion to save their life.
My precious response was with reference to your ridiculous claims, but it’s clear now that it applies accurately to you as well.
So are you like... a criminal?
Nope, makes it too easy for cops to get into your phone.
My Note 8 has fingerprint, face, iris, pattern, pin, and password. I have fingerprint, iris, and pattern set to unlock my phone. Any one of the 3 unlocks my phone. I usually use the iris scanner the most.
It's slower perhaps but I wouldn't say noticeably, maybe in tenths of a second.
The idea of needing to look at it (iphone x) is so someone can't hold it up to your fave and unlock it, it's an added layer of security.
I have iphome x and pretty much all of this is incorrect.
I use fingerprint the most most then the iris scanner then the pattern unlock
I love that movie. Predicted quite a bit. Like when the officer approached Phoenix and had to ask his tablet what to do.
... if the authorities can do it with your phone imagine what a criminal could do with your phone?
And no I'm not a criminal. Although they do have my prints on file.
What you fail to see me defending is your right to privacy.
...uh oh. Think, your foul language has finally tripped the morality filter! Poor Alcenus has now been corrupted by your coarse ways :(. There goes one of the last bastions of purity and innocence in this world.
It’s an added layer of nuisance too. For the 99.999% of what is on my phone that isn’t a particular security risk, I’d rather have fast and easy without having to look at it.
No, I don't use security on my phone. There's nothing on it that anyone could use...I save no passwords or financial information.
I used to wonder what the difference would be. But then I got a new surface book and it uses facial recognition. It is the best thing. Just open my laptop up and it unlocks after 2seconds of looking at me.
If you think you'd like the facial recognition, you're wrong. It's very awkward, requires your full attention, and you have to hold it at an odd angle for it to work. Finger print sensors are better in every way.
You already have the iPhone x?
If they get my phone they can access somethings sure
Yet you carry around a wiretapping device everywhere you go anyway.
