OnePlus 6 is the first flagship device of the year from the Chinese manufacturing company One Plus. The device was launched in the month of may this year globally. And as usual, the device came with incredible specifications and followed the latest iPhone X like notch. Also, it sports the face unlock feature something like Apple’s Face ID.
However, it seems like the face unlock feature of the One Plus 6 have not worked the way it should and created a controversy.
According to a new report, it has claimed that a user was unlocking the One Plus 6 using just a printed form of the registered face.
The report came from a twitter video posted by a twitter user @rikduijn on Tuesday. According to the video, it was pretty clear that the OnePlus 6 can easily be followed using a printout of the registered face.

However, the video did not clearly display the One Plus logo during the unlocking process. Or we do know if the device face unlock feature was registered using an actual person face or with the same printed sheet of paper.
Talking about the statement of One Plus, well they have said that “We designed Face Unlock around convenience, and while we took corresponding measures to optimise its security we always recommended you use a password/PIN/fingerprint for security. For this reason, Face Unlock is not enabled for any secure apps such as banking or payments. We’re constantly working to improve all of our technology, including Face Unlock.”
This statement from the One Plus clearly mentions that the One Plus Face Unlock technology is not as improved as Apple’s Face ID or Samsung’s Intelligent Scan. So you cannot blindly trust it as of now. But it seems like the company would eventually improve their face unlock technology in future and offer the users a better security control over their phone.
