Google Pixel 4 flagship phone can be safely called one of the most odious devices of the past year. So many bugs and compromises have been found, especially with an eye to the not-so-pleasant device price tag. One of the biggest problems was the facial unlocking of the smartphone, working on the basis of special sensors that scan the face of the user.
On Google Pixel 4, Face Unlock could be used even with your eyes closed, so if someone wanted to abuse this “security method”, he could wait until you fall asleep and easily unlock the device. Google assured that programmers are working to fix this bug by adding an item to the settings, because of which the unlock would not work if your eyes were closed.
This option is still not available. However, you can find it by searching for the word “eyes” in the settings of Pixel 4. In addition to the caption – Require eyes to be open – there is a small explanation that says that your eyes must be open to unlock the smartphone.
Unfortunately, by clicking on this item, you will be taken to the familiar unlock settings screen, in which the long-awaited option is still not displayed.
Google has already released several monthly patches and two major updates for the Pixel 4, and yet this option still does not work. However, its presence in the firmware promises its relatively faster appearance on Pixel devices.
