Samsung Galaxy S8 has a number of protective measures. The phone can be unlocked via a password, sequence, fingerprint scanner or facial recognition. It isn’t news that the phone’s fingerprint scanner does not work all that great – if previous leaks are to believed, it is why the phone has a facial recognition in the first place. Now, a YouTube user nicknamed MarcianoPhone is proving (though perhaps not beyond any doubt) that S8’s facial recognition is flawed as well.
MarcianoPhone has uploaded a video in which he unlocks the phone using its facial recognition feature. Okay, but where is the catch? MarcianoPhone is using the owner’s picture to do it. And he manages to. Yes, it takes a few tries and probably couldn’t be done in a heat of a moment, but if a potential thief has the owner’s picture and some time… well, that’s not great advertisement for Samsung, now is it *dun dun DUNNN*.
