Visidon AppLock – Face Recognition For Unlocking

There are many ways to protect your phone – entering a pin or a password but how about using face recognition? XDA forum member almaqdad has posted about Visidon AppLock, a face recognition unlock application by XDA Developers VisidonSupport.

The app provides a fast, convenient and cool way to protect your mobile with face recognition. Protect any application e.g. SMS, Gallery, Email etc on your Android device using face recognition.

Visidon AppLock lets you choose the apps to be protected with your face being the key to open them! The application uses the front facing camera on your device and verifies in real-time that the face matches the one allowed to access the private apps.

For further details, including notes and tips on using the app, head on over to the application thread. Visidon AppLock is available to download free in the Market and requires Android 2.3+.
