The Pixel 4 is shaping up to be one of this year's most exciting phone releases.
Unlike many Android smartphones that offer face unlock using the selfie camera, the Pixel 4 uses sensors including an infrared (IR) sensor and a Dot projector to enable face unlocking - just like the latest iPhone system. It also assures owners that, despite that missing eye detection, its Face Unlock is secure enough for payments and banking and can't be fooled by masks. "In the meantime, if any Pixel 4 users are concerned that someone may take their phone and try to unlock it while their eyes are closed, they can activate a security feature that requires a pin, pattern or password for the next unlock". Apple claims each device should be able to detect a face from more angles than their respective predecessors.
The Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL aren't even available yet and there's a serious security flaw been discovered in the way their super-fast Face Unlock feature works.

What's more, Apple specifically states an iPhone will not unlock if a user is sleeping. Nor does it say if it will be optional but default requirement, just like Face ID. He also posted a video showing the phone got unlocked while his eyes were shut.
"We don't have anything specific to announce regarding future features or timing, but like most of our products, this feature is created to get better over time with future software updates".
The Pixel 4 uses facial recognition as its primary means of unlocking the handset, but people quickly realized that this is far less secure that you'd imagine.
This tool can be added to the phone's power menu options that disables all biometric unlocking in favour of a traditional PIN.
