About Face Unlock

With Face Unlock, you can set up HTC U23 pro to unlock the screen with your face when the screen is on.

For best face scanning results

Follow these tips when registering your face:

  • Do the face scan indoors in a well-lit environment.
  • Do not cover your face with an object such as sunglasses, mask, or hat.
  • Hold your phone at face level and at a distance of 20 to 50 cm (8 to 20 in) from your face.
  • Stay still and do not move your phone while the phone scans your face.
Note: Face Unlock is less secure since your phone could be unlocked by someone or something that contains or looks like your image. If you have concerns, use other more secure authentication methods such as a screen lock pattern, PIN, or password.

Setting up Face Unlock

  1. From the Home screen, tap Settings > Security > Face Unlock.
  2. If you haven't already set up a screen lock, you'll be asked to choose and set up a backup pattern, PIN, or password for unlocking your phone. See Setting a screen lock.
  3. Read the tips and reminders, then tap Continue.
  4. Follow the onscreen instructions to scan your face.

Unlocking your phone with Face Unlock

You need to be on the lock screen to use Face Unlock for unlocking your phone.
  1. If the screen is off, press the Power button to wake up the screen.
  2. Hold your phone in portrait orientation at face level and look at the front camera.

    Your phone will bypass the Security screen and unlock.
