Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus has been promoting face unlocking as one of the OnePlus 5T, besides other upgrades that the phone brings. The feature is promised to roll out in the OnePlus 5 with the Android Oreo update. However, the yesteryear’s flagships are said to have been kept out from the list of phones that get the feature in the software update.
Step 1: Go to settings and look for ‘security & fingerprint’ option and click on it
Step 2: In the security & fingerprint option, there is another option of ‘Smart Unlock’ under the device security tab
Step 3: The smart unlock option provides 5 different ways that can be used to unlock the device – On-body detection, Trusted places, Trusted devices, Trusted face and Trusted voice. Click on Trusted face option to set up the face-unlock feature
Step 4: Find a place, which is not too bright or too dim before setting up the face-unlock feature, and hold the phone at the eye level
Step 5: The phone recognises your face in the same manner as the OnePlus 5T does.
Step 6: Voila! You can now unlock your device using the face-unlock feature.
