I’m sure by now most of you have heard of Face Unlock, one of Google’s biggest features within the Android platform, but more recently this feature received a lot of bad press when it was discovered a picture of the owner could be used to unlock the phone.

This is obviously a huge problem if you decide to use this feature on your own phone, but it is now one Samsung think they have a solution to with their own custom version of Face Unlock, which requires users to blink before it would let them access the device, and according to Samsung ill prove the person in front of the camera is in act human:

Included in the firmware upgrade is the ‘Face Unlock’ feature found in the ICS upgrade. In response to security issues raised regarding Face Unlock, Samsung incorporated blinking for added security. Also included is ‘Photo Editor’, ‘Beta Font’ function for font size control, and ‘Snapshot’ which allows you to take photos while recording video.

What do you think about this? Do you use Face Unlock?
