Android smartphone comes with many interesting features and locking screen is one of the add on of this OS. There are generally two main types of screen lock one in PIN where you have to enter numeric numbers and second one is pattern lock in which user have to draw the pattern to unlock the screen. Nowadays some more unlocker arrived like gestures, air blow etc. but here my question is you really getting bored from PIN, pattern lock or some other new types of regular locks. If yes then i have something new for you which is called face unlocker for Android. Now your question will be is this possible?

What if i tell you that you can use your face to unlock your Android smartphone. Isn’t interesting? If yes then continue reading. iPhone has fingerprint sensor to unlock the screen which is an quite interesting features. Now this is something which you can’t even think to try it in Android smartphone because it needs hardware and as well as OS compatibility. But you will be happy to hear that you can use the almost similar type of unlocking system which uses your face to unlock your Android smartphone.

There is no critical technology behind the face unlocker. It will simply scan the user face and compare it with the most recent head shot. You will be surprised to knew that this technology was arrived earlier with when Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich was launched. It is not so popular because it is not secure as Apple Touch ID or fingerprint sensor but however you can use this without any doubt because still it works great.

Note: Below tutorial is for Android smartphones having Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS.
