Default Face Unlock (JellyBean)

I am finding new hidden features and one that I find very cool is the blink feature in Face Unlock. People used to complain that you could fool Face Unlock with a picture of the owner.

Well this really seems to make Face Unlock seem like less of a gimmick and more of a real security tool... that's bad ass

Also I used "Improve Face Matching" from waist level and now I can use face unlock without looking like a toolbag with my phone at shoulder level :thumbup:

Thanks for the tip! I've exlored it since yesterday and I just LOVE it. Project Butter seems to have vastly improved the "flow" of Android, and the new notificationcenter is awesome.

How agressive is "Blink to unlock"??

I have to open my eyes wide before forcefully close them. At best it takes two or three blinks, at worst it doesn't work.

Is anyone else having problems?
