Re: Vibe Z2 after Lollipop upgrade Smart Lock Trusted Face unlock don’t work + Lenovo Security missi

@Veco359

....but it don't work forward camera GUI don't appear on lock screen....

Ok.My fault,maybe that article wasn't the most relevant.You are used to the old face unlock function:see yourself on the screen(''mirror'')->device recognizes your face.....unlock.You still expect to see yourself(''mirror''),am I correct?

 

With Lollipop things got a lot more discreet(faster/efficient if you ask me),you don't see yourself anymore,no more mirror.

To unlock using the new ''Trusted Face'' feature-> ''start'' (couldn't find a better word at this hour :catvery-happy:) the screen->slide up the lock screen->if the phone has recognized your face(again,no more ''mirror'' shows up) it will simply unlock(just with a slide up).If it dosen't recognize your face(after you slide up) it will ask for the PIN or pattern you use.

It's not a bug....just an improved Android(this is Google's doing not Lenovo's) feature.

 

Hint:To improve face recognition Go to Smart Lock->Trusted face->Improve face matching and ''selfie'' in different ambient condition.The more you do that, the more your phone will know your face.

 

Another (more useful) articole & video on the matter.Keep in mind that Lenovo has a customized UI(VibeUI).The article presents stock UI(not much difference do).

 

PS.Don't know how well it works on the Vibe Z2(not Pro) but I just tried it on my K920 and seems to be working great.

 

Edit:The more you do that, the more your phone will know your face.Not overdoing it obviously....Might start to unlock just by ''seeing'' persons that only resemble you:smileyhappy:

@ctibor

First make sure that ''Smart Lock''(Settings->Security->Advance/Trust agents) is enabled.

Also you need to have/set a PIN or pattern unlock to use the feature.

 

Hope this helps,

Regards.

Re: Vibe Z2 after Lollipop upgrade Smart Lock Trusted Face unlock don’t work + Lenovo Security missi

Hi Team Lenovo,

 

I am using Lenovo Vibe Z2 from Jan 2015. I love this phone. Initially I was facing heat problem in this phone. But then with lots of updates and usage I am used to it, that doesnt grab my attenstion anymore.

 

Well before the Lollipop update there was Face unlock feature of Lenovo inbuild in the phone. It was working smoothly almost with no flaws. But with the Lollipop update the face unlock is google based and i need to use Pin for almost 70 times out of 100. Which is not really expected. I like to face unlock feature to open my smartphone. But this new feature has made me upset.

 

Request you to bring back the inbuild feature of face unlock of lenovo back in K920.

Shaan.

Hello supersmp at first I must apologies to you because I didn't answer earlier i been busy and forget.

 

Unfortunately your kind guide don't help seems that smart lock is bugged at least on Vibe Z2. You see in 4.4.4 it works without errors and recognize my face fast no matter if I wear glasses or not!

 

Now even face enroll system for improve face matching have problem with figuring that I look at camera before this process go smooth and fast. Second on lock screen i don't have icon of user and lock on its place for me is message icon.

 

Can you warn your Android programers about this problem and can you tell me how I can back on 4.4.4?

 

I hate that I need enter pin for every unlock. If I can help your programers to find where is problem tell me what I need to do and send back to you!

 

Cheers and thank you! :)

2. ThinkPad E540

4. Lenovo Vibe Z2

Yes, I can confirm that Smart Lock / Trusted faces  is buggy in Vibe Z2 with Lollipop.

It some times works some times, more often not. 

Even if I draw wrong pattern the phone unlocks for the second attempt, so there is no security.
