Facial Recognition

Has anyone tried out the facial recognition feature to lock and unlock their phone? I was ready to set it up but hesitated in the fear of” what if’s. “Will the lighting indoors or outdoors affect hoe the camera compares the two images?

This may be a cool way to lock and unlock but is it practical?

     I haven't had extensive use with it but from what I have it's decent, it exceeded my expectations. It can be impacted by the lighting but you can just enter the security pin/unlock pattern if it fails to recognize your face.

It works great for me. You can input multiple images to help with different lighting, glasses on or off, shaved or unshaved. I have 6 photos in and it recognized me about 90-95% of the time. You can also set up a passcode or pattern for back up.

Thanks, I was worried about what if it didnt recognize my face, but someone thought of a way as a back up with a pin number, that was a reason I didn't try it but now that I know there is a way I'll give it a try.
