Unlock Apps using your Face & Voice

Since the launch of the iPhone X & One Plus 5T, the Face ID is in the limelight, in case if you are wondering what the heck Face ID is then let me tell you its a Facial recognition system specially designed for iPhone X which unlocks the phone by scanning the user’s face.

DID YOU KNOW? Face ID technology was already launched on Android since years.

But the low-quality front camera was the reason behind its failure.

Apple took it to another level with its advanced technology of two modules. By which you can unlock the phone or even your face can be used as identification during paying.

But the biggest disadvantage of Face ID in iPhone X is you cannot unlock Apps through it. But its possible in Android by using an App called AppLock. By using it, you can keep your Face & Voice as a password to unlock Apps & setting.

Keeping Pattern or Pin for locking App is now an old-fashioned method, and anyone can unlock it. So, it’s not that secure, and in the age of WhatsApp & Tinder no one wants to lose his privacy.

How it works – When you will open any locked App, the App lock will open a window for scanning your face. It will look for your Face or voice and once it verifies, the App get unlocked instantly. See the below GIF for quick walk-through.

Security Tip –

  • Click on the hamburger icon (options), than tap on “Advanced Settings” and enable the “Liveness Analysis” option. By doing this, at the time of unlocking the Apps, it will check for motions like blinking or movements of your head, so no one will able to unlock Apps by showing your still images.
  • The App comes with two security modes: Convenience mode and Truly Secure mode.
  1. Convenience mode – In this mode, you can unlock Apps using your Face or Voice, you can’t keep both the option enabled simultaneously.
  2. Truly Secure mode – If you want more security than you can use this mode, by using this mode you have to provide both Face ID & voice to unlock the Apps. Hence it’s more secure than the first mode.
