    It is settled law in the United States that law enforcement agencies cannot force you to unlock a device using a pin/pattern code (legally: "something you know") but *can* force you to unlock using your fingerprint ("something you have").

    So, I guess the same would apply to your face? A cop could simply turn your device on and point it at your face, no?

    Don't get me wrong - I don't have reason to be concerned about such things, but some people do...

    Having said that, I noticed a few days ago that facial recognition is now available on my Pixel XL with Android Oreo.

    I just set it up and can say that it quickly (almost too quickly) unlocks my phone both when I am wearing my glasses and when not. It does not unlock the phone when pointed at a wall decoration, a photo, or even myself when looking directly into a mirror.

    The downside is that after tapping the power button, I have to swipe up in the usual "unlock" motion. Then, if it recognizes my face, it takes me directly to the home screen; if it does not, it pops the keyboard or pattern unlock screen as appropriate. The simple fact that I have to use the power button *and* swipe up amounts to two extra steps compared to when using fingerprint unlock (which powers on and unlocks instantly simply by picking up the phone with my finger properly located on the rear sensor).

    Really? I didnt know about that. In fact I never though about someone forcing you to unlock your device. Mine is working well on G6, and it doesnt takes me to home screen but ill keep using fingerprint instead.

    Y you have mini screen aswell and gaming optimization.. Facial recognition, some people said that it can be fooled by replacing your face with your photo.. So idk, it's useless and pointless to me.. I mean like you have pattern lock with pin, knock code, drawing, fingerprint.. Just idk don't see the purpose of it or need to use it... I use fingerprint and i love that and don't need anything else at all...

    That's why you use the wrong finger and force the password to come up.

    it sucks, but it sounds like you need to either do a factory reset to remove any gnomes, or you have an app that is screwing your battery...
