Kids can easily use your finger to unlock the phone when you are asleep, and "security" personnel and other people can just force you to touch the fingerprint sensor and unlock your phone even if you don't want to.
So as long as someone can access your data without your consent, that means the security features you have on your device are not secure at all.
The only solution is to use both facial scanning and iris scanning at the same time.

And no, fingerprint scanner is not old yet! facial recognition and iris scanner is useless or not a convenient as fingerprint scanner in dark environments
So? What if we put some screen protectors..... Does this feature still works fine?
