Techno 4 April, 2017

The unlocking system of the Samsung Galaxy S8 by facial recognition is not very effective. And it is the Korean giant who says so. The details !
On the day of the Galaxy S8 and S8 + presentation, a high-tech journalist managed to unlock the new Korean flagship with a single photo on another smartphone. This rapid unlocking calls into question the effectiveness of facial recognition. A situation that prompted Samsung to react very quickly. In the days following this incident, the Korean giant explained that facial recognition was, above all, a practical function . The manufacturer has not hesitated to recall that facial recognition can not be used for Samsung Pay or the Secure Folder.
“It is important to repeat that facial recognition, however handy, can only be used to open your Galaxy S8 and can not currently be used to authenticate access to Samsung Pay or the Secure Folder ” Says Samsung. But this speech runs counter to the argument of the Korean giant about the security of its flagship that would be closely related to facial recognition . As if, ultimately, the unlocking of another person’s phone from a photo found on the world wide web was not a huge security issue. But if not, a benchmark has already managed to decide between the iPhone 7 Plus and the Samsung Galaxy S8
