Submission + - Samsung Galaxy S3 Face Unlock tricked by photograph (ibtimes.co.uk)

AlistairCharlton writes: Android's Face Unlock security on the Samsung Galaxy S3 can be tricked into unlocking the phone by showing it a photograph of the owner.

In a test carried out by IBTimes UK, we found that the Galaxy S3 cannot distinguish between a photograph and a real person, leading us to suggest users should select a more secure way of locking the phone, such as with a PIN or password.
