Android Q have face recognition like Apple
It was reported that Google is developing built-in support for secure biometric authentication features similar to the Apple Face ID in the upcoming release of the Android Q operating system for smartphones. Writing on the XDA-Developers Portal, Mishal Rahman points out “dozens of lines and a lot of methods, classes and fields related to face recognition, SystemUI and APK settings” of the released Android Q build, which is relevant with regard to the internal main version of Google Android Open Source Project (AOSP).

This build of AOSP Android Q included many features that Android fans will surely be interested in. The theme is in dark mode, working with applications that are not equipped with a built-in dark mode. A whole series of changes in the way that Android Q handles application permissions. An option that alludes to something similar to the Samsung DeX, according to the XDA-Developers Portal report.

However, the most interesting is the detection of a code related to the new face recognition authentication system, which can provide security similar to Face ID to unlock the phone, enter applications and for payments. This will be an important step forward for Android devices. Undoubtedly, some phone manufacturers already have their own versions of Face ID, which already work on Android smartphones. Huawei Mate 20 Pro immediately comes to mind. The problem here is that Huawei had to work hard to set up Android in order to get the necessary operating system support for this face recognition equipment.

Although nothing suggests that the implementation of Huawei is in any way unsafe, finalizing and tweaking the OS will never be as secure as the built-in support inside Android itself. As we saw from numerous examples on the Internet. The cost and complexity of the security implications in which security is not integrated can often lead to not-so-safe results. Built-in support for facial recognition in devices on the Android platform should reduce both the cost and the complexity that specialized biometrics presents, which should be good.

"Face recognition in Android? I think it’s great, but not really good for security, ”said Ian Trump, head of cyber security at AmTrust International. There are two main reasons for this caution regarding face recognition on smartphones: firstly, Trump wonders how accurate it will be, and also worries that it feels more comfortable and not a gain in security. Trump notes: “I am a person with a password; I’ll always be a person with a password, but I understand that a feature like face recognition can be a way to get people to protect their Android device. ”

In truth, getting consumers on the street to use any kind of security on a smartphone is a victory. Experience shows that there are more people who do not even have a basic PIN code than those who implement one or another authentication option to unlock their devices. “Why not just make passwords mandatory on Android devices?” Trump asks, “It seems to me that the time and development efforts could be better spent on implementing existing Android security features rather than face recognition just because Apple users have face recognition. "
