We need face mask unlock!  Some people just don't want to use fingerprint unlock And sometimes face unlock is much faster.

Why not use fingerprint? iPhone needs that feature because they don't have fingerprint support.

It would defeat the purpose of having face unlock if half your face is covered. Anyone with eyes and a mask on could unlock your phone...

Some folks want face recognition with masks. Yes, it's not as secure as face recognition without masks, but the facial rec software should still be able to identify the eyes, ears, hair, and forehead shape.

If you don't want facial recognition with a mask, just don't register your face with a mask.

There are parts of the world that use masks even before COVID, and this feature would be valuable for them even when the pandemic is over 🙂

Turns out there is a "Require eyes open" feature where you can turn this on and off. How about a "require mouth visible" option as well 🙂
