    I disabled the face recognition, it works so good that I'd be glancing at the phone for the time or something and it would turn on, if my hand was on the screen I'd dial a number, press app buttons, or press stuff that I'd have to get out of to turn off the phone. I love the idea but just became a hassle.

    Never used it actually. The fingerprint sensor is annoying at times but the alternative didn't appeal to me.

    Never turned it on in the first place.

    Face unlock on the S10 series isn't very secure, and even on devices where it's more secure, I prefer an active unlock method rather than a passive one.

    Fom me I have never felt the need for security unlock. I simply have none activated on mine. Played with fingerprint for a short time just for testing.

    I use face unlock as much as possible.
    Eczema trashes my fingerprints and they can be hard to read, only my index finger works regularly.

    I don't have the phone, but I'm assuming you had to somehow register your face so it knows what to look for. Check your security settings and you should find an option to delete your face (now that sounds weird out of context), which would prevent it from turning the screen on by facial recognition.

    anyone rethinking face recognition with the beta update? never used before but I'm considering as it is now a bit more secure. and you can read the content of notifications that are typically hidden after unlocking with the face. which you can't do with the fingerprint and is rather handy.

    That's good to know that it works that well, though!

    It still uses the camera, which means it still isn't secure.

    A cardboard envelope is "more secure" than a paper one... It still only takes 0.75 seconds to tear it open though.
