How to Unlock your LG V30 with your Face

LG V30 is supposed to be an ideal phone for media lovers, packed with a high-quality DAC for excellent audio, as well a powerful processor and a wide-aperture camera better than ever before. But what about personalizing it? I am sure that this is what you have in mind.

With the V30, LG is giving you more options for making the phone your own. You can match haptic feedback to the ringtone of your choosing, to take advantage of the handset’s 18:9 OLED display, you can even adjust the Floating Bar, not to mention that from the manual shooting mode, you can access Graphy, a sort of photo editing suite that grants access to editing presets designed by pro photographers

Facial recognition is growing more popular as a smartphone security measure and you have the option of unlocking your LG V30 with your face – yours and no one else’s. is this the kind of personalization that you have in mind?

Facial recognition can be a hot issue though, as there are different ways of it being implemented. Unlike Windows laptops that have an infrared camera for his purpose, the V30 uses the front camera. It is tue that it doesn’t work in the dark, but I think that won’t be an issue for many; after all, the fingerprint reader is still there in such cases and it is also about making the device truly yours.

To set it up go to Settings > Display > Lock screen > Face Recognition and you’ll be prompted to enter your PIN. It’s easy to set up, just make sure your face is within the circle. It’s not the most secure method, but you can make it slightly more secure by toggling on Advanced face recognition. In fact, it is my duty to remind you that unless you turn on “Advanced face recognition”, you will be able to unlock the phone with a simple picture of yourself and I am sure that this is not what you want.
