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.
