True, the necessary menu item will have to be activated independently.

Well, it happened. Google has finally released the long-awaited update for the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL smartphones, which makes the face recognition feature really safe.

After six months, Pixel 4 smartphones have finally become really safe. Face Unlock no longer works with eyes closed

Recall that initially Face Unlock on these devices worked even when the user had his eyes closed. And this is an extra opportunity for attackers to gain access to the device when the owner is sleeping. How Google missed this point is unclear, but the company immediately promised to fix it in the future.

Usually in such situations, they say that half a year has not passed, but the irony is that just half a year has passed. That is how much Google took to fix the problem. This hints that Google initially forgot or missed this aspect, otherwise it would hardly have taken the company so much time.

The negotiated update for smartphones contains not only the Face Unlock improvement but also the April security patch. After installing it on Google smartphones, the menu item “Require eyes to be open” appears in the menu – you need to activate it. Interestingly, it does not turn on automatically after the update.
