Blink your eyes to un­lock your Sam­sung Gal­axy!

OpenSource For You - - FOSSBYTES -

While the Face Un­lock fea­ture took the Sam­sung Gal­axy own­ers by sur­prise, users con­stantly com­plained that the fa­cial recog­ni­tion fea­ture could be fooled (and un­locked) us­ing their pho­tos too. Cater­ing to this se­cu­rity is­sue, the com­pany has added ‘blink-recog­ni­tion’ to Face Un­lock in a cus­tom ver­sion of Ice Cream Sand­wich for the Gal­axy.

In the modi ed sys­tem, users will have to blink while they are be­ing ob­served by the Face Un­lock fea­ture. This will make sure that it is not a photo but the owner of the phone who is un­lock­ing it.
