Setting up Face Unlock

When the screen is on, you can use Face Unlock to quickly unlock HTC EXODUS 1‍ by simply looking at the front camera.
  1. From the Home screen, swipe up and then tap Settings > Face Unlock.
  2. If you haven't already set up a screen lock, you'll be asked to choose and set up a backup pattern, PIN, or password for unlocking your phone. See Setting a screen lock.
  3. If prompted, choose how you want to show notification content when your phone is locked, and then tap Done.
  4. Tap Register face data, and then read the tips and reminders.
  5. Tap Next and follow the onscreen instructions to scan your face.
  6. Tap Turn on to enable Face Unlock.
Note: Face Unlock is less secure since your phone could be unlocked by someone or something that contains or looks like your image. If you have concerns, use other more secure authentication methods such as a screen lock pattern, PIN, or password. Or use your fingerprint for unlocking your phone.
