    Haha. Do you use any tracking apps in case your phone gets stolen considering there's no security on the lock screen?

    Nope, my phone doesn't leave me. It's like American Express, I don't leave home without it :biggrin:

    I just use the swipe. My phone's always in my possession and I've never lost it. I wouldn't think of leaving unattended anymore than a purse.

    I do use SeekDroid though, just because I have passwords and so much info on it and loss/theft is possible for a variety of reasons. I don't use the monthly subscription features (e.g., Breadcrumbs, Location Fencing, etc). I just want the ability to remotely locate and/or wipe my phone and SD card if need be.

    I have my works security policy enabled so that bypasses the face unlock. Non factor for me. Just wish the phone worked like it did before ics.

    I used it at first. I got bored with pretty fast. I kept it enabled mostly just to show it off to iphone people.

    I mostly got annoyed with it when it was too dark or I was holding it at an angle where I knew it would not be able to recognize me. There needs to be a way to quickly bypass the face unlock to get to the secondary lock screen.

    It was disappointing to see how difficult it was to be in exactly the right light and position to unlock the phone. I guess I'm used to working in a dimly lit cave.

    Agreed... The extra step it would take to have to go back into security settings and have it improve on the facial recognition. I'm too late for all of that now... And then for it to fail repeatedly while trying to unlock it in front of coworkers or friend... nope.

    I tried improving on the facial recognition, but it didn't make that much of a difference for me.

    I can relate as well. To an extent, it seemed like it started working fine after improving... but then I found myself having to "improve" it almost every other day, lol.

    It was a pita, lasted less then a day. Now if they had a voice command unlock i would use that.

    I'm still waiting for my dermal cell implant, then I won't have to worry about unlocking and security......

    Too many problems. It had difficulty recognizing me if I was either wereing or not wearing my glasses and also stumbled if I hadn't shaved in several days or changed from a goatee to a beard. Also had trouble recognizing me in extremes of lighting conditions. Too much of an inconvenience.
