On the Pixel 4, Google has abandoned the fingerprint sensor and relies entirely on its new Face Unlock system, which in terms of security is certainly not perfect. Here's how to secure the contents of your new pixel by hiding a cache option in your device's settings.
Google Face Unlock allows you to quickly and efficiently unlock the Pixel 4 with the new Soli Radar chip built into the top of the device. Unfortunately, facial recognition also works with your eyes closed or if you look away from the camera. This can only raise some doubts in terms of security. Anyone can take the smartphone and point it on the owner's face to unlock it.
Google has promised that it will release a software update to solve the problem, but we will have to wait. However, you can count on the features offered by Android that will help you increase the security of your Pixel 4 or Pixel 4 XL. It's like a walk!
How to activate the "Lock" mode
Do not worry, to activate this mode, you will not do anything strange if you do not enter your pixel and follow these steps:
- Go in Access settings> Display
- Access advanced settings available at the bottom of the screen
- Select the item Concentration on the screen
- Press and hold the power button for a few seconds to see the option Lock.
- Activate it by clicking on it (you will find it between the sections Restart and Screen capture)
Once activated, the locked mode will prevent your phone from being unlocked via Face Unlock. The only way to access it is to enter the PIN or password previously set in the device.
Lock mode disables smart unlocking, which means that notifications and locations of Bluetooth connects devices no longer appear as the lock screen. Once the Pixel is unlocked once with the password or PIN, the lock is automatically disabled.
And you, will you activate it on your Pixel 4?
