WATCH: Samsung’s Galaxy S8 facial recognition feature tricked

Samsung introduced their latest phone offering ‘Galaxy S8’ with facial recognition as one of its features. Bascially it allows users to unlock the phone just by looking into the front-facing camera.

But the said feature was compromised by bypassing the feature by using a photo.

After the video was published, a Samsung spokesperson told Business Insider in a statement that facial recognition isn’t intended to be a secure feature. It’s just a way to open your phone to the home screen.
