Galaxy S8 Facial Recognition can be Bypassed With a Photo

If you plan on getting one of those sharp looking new Samsung Galaxy S8 phones, you might want to think twice before utilizing the face unlock feature. iDeviceHelp has posted a video on YouTube showing that the face unlock feature can me fooled with a picture.

I had thought that this shortage in phones and face unlocks had already been overcome through the use of movement, and the requirement to capture the face from multiple angles. The video does state that maybe they were dealing with a problem with pre-release software. Let's hope that is the case. With the awkward position of the fingerprint sensor on the S8, chances are good that a lot of people might want to use face unlock.
