Video shows Face Unlock on Galaxy Nexus tricked by photo
A reporter from SoyaCincau has posted video showing Face Unlock being gamed by a photo of himself on a Galaxy Note. The reporter does note that Google has warned that Face Unlock is not as secure as a regular pin or password, and that a "similar looking person" could unlock your device, but Google has said that using a picture would not work. The video shows the reporter unlocking the Galaxy Nexus three times using the photo on the Note.
There is a bit of skepticism around the video, because the reporter says that he programmed the Nexus to "recognize his picture". The reporter chalked that up to misspeaking, and added a link to the original video when he set up Face Unlock using his actual face. Still, it seems that Face Unlock is not as secure as some would have hoped, and if Google is admitting as much, that may mean the Android team is already working on ways to update the feature and make it more secure. We'll have to see on that though.
