What can i do about the .face files? Thx
While trying to clean up some files I ran across the .face files. Anyone know what they are and what happens if I delete them?
Galaxy tab2 10.1 5113 4.0.4
I've never heard of them. My first guess would be face unlock but that's based simply on the name
Is it on the sd card?
From what I gathered, they are little thumbnails based on the face recognition of the camera and other downloaded images.
I opened a few of my .face files and oddly, one was a thumbnail image of part of a picture that I took of a vehicle...the thumbnail was the wheel of the vehicle.
Another .face file I opened was a thumbnail of again, the wheel, of a car wallpaper I had downloaded off of Zedge.
Wierd, I know, right? Why? I dont know. Can you delete them? I don't see why not, I deleted one of the thumbnails and I went back to the picture of where it came from, and there was no difference.
Edit: found this too:
Maybe it views the circular shape of the tire as the face its looking for in the picture
Either way, should be safe to delete
