    How do I get face unlock on my Galaxy s2?

    Using Samsung Galaxy S2 model GT-I9100M on OS 4.0.3

    I went around and played with all the settings but I can't seem to find it. It should be in security with the others but I can't find it.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    oh wow, Now I feel stupid. I thought that screen lock thing was for the pattern thing only because it asked for my screen lock password first.

    Thanks!

    Didn't even know it was on this phone until I saw this thread. It works perfectly but my only worry is that well I'm sleeping my family can unlock the phone by pointing it to my face.

    hm. It tells me that face unlock and no lock have been disabled by the administrator. I checked and the only administrator set was Cerberus. after disabling it, I still can't pick anything less secure than pattern combination for the phone...what the hell? :thinking:

    I ran into the same issue setting up VPN connections yesterday. Do you have any certificates listed in Settings/Security/Trusted credentials? If so that's the reason - this level of security is required to use credential storage.

    You use the "Clear credentials" option in Security and should then be able to set a less-secure method, but if an app requires credential storage it will probably complain.

    You dont need to worry about them doing it while your asleep, the security on the face unlock is so low that your phone can be opened by using a photograph or even someone who looks like you!. :rolleyes:

    does it only look when you press the home or power button at the point the lockscreen appears? If its looking al the time it would use the battery up wouldn't it?

    well I did have to download a couple certificates to gain access to university wifi, they can keep you from disabling pattern protection with them? before updating to ICS I spent some time without any lockscreen and when connecting to campus wifi I would get asked for credential storage password..

    It appears so. I'm all for security precautions but it's more than a bit inconvenient for someone whose handset never leaves their person.
