Submission + - Google's Proposed Facial Gestures Unlock Feature for Android Devices (

scorpio.pkt writes: For all those who forget the lock screen pattern too often or first spend a few minutes coming up with an ingenious password which no hacker would be able to get through and then forget it themselves, Google proposes to introduce an Unlock System that would require the users of the Android based device to make certain facial gestures while looking int the front camera of their device. That could include winking eyes, pulling out the tongue, rubbing the nose or a wrinkle across the forehead.
This proposed system will ensure that the data stored in the device (whether cell phone or tablet) can not be accessed by unauthorized people.
