    Well, keep in mind we never had secure facial recognition on any Samsung phone. We did have the insecure face scan done by the front facing camera, but to my knowledge that's still available on the Note 10 and 10+.

    I missed the iris scanner for awhile, but I got used to the front facing fingerprint scanner on the S10+ and it is WAY more convenient, despite the higher failure rate.

    We get facial recognition, just not iris scanning.

    Same here. I currently use it on my Note8, and paid with the FPS on the back, it is a good combo for me. I might miss it on the Note10+ that I have ordered. I never used the face unlock.

    iris scanner never worked with my glasses on, which I have to wear. I tried it once in the morning, light on and no glasses and it worked nice.

    I never tried the facial option.

    I don't believe the facial recognition required anything more than the camera. It was thr Iris sensor that required the additional infrared light.

    Even Samsung's Iris Scanner wasn't very secure, but the facial recognition I especially wouldn't trust.

    Both failed to work for me. Why burn out your eyes with the unneeded light from the iris scan?

    Wow... Paranoid thread. Burned out eyes and broke into phones with photos.

    Thankfully there are other options, like fingerprint, codes, and patterns. Plus double protecting the data by putting it into the secure folder with a different access method. Its unlikely someone could fake your face, and your pattern/pin.

    Of course twins are screwed on all of the biometrics methods.

    Iris scanner I think was pretty secure, you could use for Samsung pay , it was regular face unlock that wasn't secure.

    And how was it not secure since it needed your face to complete transactions. Your mom or dad cant get into your phone or complete a transaction with their face right?

    The iris scanner is secured, regular face unlock wasn't because if someone resembled your face they could probably can get in . Iris scanner used your eyes which was much much harder .

    Right. With Samsung face unlock you could spoof it with a photo. With iris scanning someone would need to take a high res photo of you and put contact lenses over the eyes, and then maybe it would work.

    Well technically its not secure because a simple photo can trick the phone. But as you pointed out, the average thief or busybody still won't be able to get into the phone.

    As others have said, Samsung's facial recognition is easily fooled. All you need to do is have a photo of the phone owner on another phone, and it will unlock it.

    That being said, I was incorrect with the Iris Scanner. I didn't realize it was secure enough to be used to authenticate log in and for Samsung Pay. But Samsung isn't offering that anymore, just regular face unlock.

    Not a simple photo a highly detailed photo. I tried taking multiple pictures transferring them to my tablet and the phone wasn't tricked. I think there's too much hype over this situation. Use face for unlocking phone and fps for banking and password protected apps./ Sites.

    Have you tried it? I have and it doesn't work. I even used my tablet so it's more life like and still nothing.
