Set up Face Recognition on your Galaxy Note 9
Samsung has added layers of security to their latest flagship – Galaxy Note 9. One of the features which is not only interesting, but also useful is the Facial recognition.
Phones like the iPhone X and your very own Galaxy Note 9 use biometric information to unlock your device, like your unique facial pattern and I bet that some of you actually find it more convenient or more novel to use face unlocking versus their fingerprint.
So, how to easily set it up and running? That is what you are about to find out. And I bet that you are no stranger of all those rumors about the dangers of using such a method on your Note 9 and some of them are indeed for real, but Samsung‘s implementation of this alternative unlocking method is really good, and you’re doing yourself a disservice if you don’t turn it on, at least out of pure curiosity and only for a while.
So, what are you waiting for?
