    Hi all, just thought ad let you no if you didn't already, I used the face security to unlock the N7 but the wife had to use the code to unlock it, so I thought ad try and put her face in the security as well as mine and it worked with 2 faces to unlock it, I haven't tryed more faces yet but it works with 2 :)

    You should always use security, my mate had an iPad and got Broken into, but he had security on it and they couldn't get into it and he had the find my phone app and got it back, I wounder if there is an app for use ? To keep us safe

    I would hate to burst your bubble, but face recognition is a really poor security method, even with the blinking they introduced. That can still be spoofed with a photo.

    I don't really bother too much with security as I don't take the nexus out anywhere.
    I would probably be more likely to use a pin code since the face recognition isn't so good in low light.

    But half of the robbers won't think of that, like the idiot that robbed my mate, they only got him coz he was trying to get into the iPad and couldn't thats why the police got him

    How exactly did you get it to work with more than one face? I don't see any option for that.

    I just took some pictures of my face and then some of the wife and it let's the 2 of us to use the face security, you don't need to go in to the options to do it.

    You guys might want to consider encrypting your tablet but then my paranoia is legendary.
