If you are running the MIUI 9 Stable Official Rom 9.2.1.0+, you can have the Face Unlock feature (Recieved by Redmi Note 5 Pro in the Latest Update) enabled
Here is the procedure-
1. Download the zip file(link below)
2. Flash it using TWRP Recovery.
No need to clear any cache
3. Reboot.
Or
1. Flash the Magisk Module using Magisk Manager

Tested on Redmi Note 4(Mido) running the latest Stable MIUI V9.2.1.0.NCFMIEK (MIUI9) and Developer Rom 8.2.8 (MIUI9) MIUI 9.5.4.0 and 9.5.8.0 or
Redmi Note 4 (Nikel) Running on 9.2.2.0


Update- Working on these devices as well-
1. Mi Max Prime running 9.2.1.0

For Redmi 4/4x i'have made another port, here
Test on your devices at your own risk.

FAQs-
1- Works on MIUI8?
It doesn't work on MIUI8, Kindly update it to the latest firmware and flash this.

2- On custom roms?
For custom roms either this function is already there( if it's not why are you still on it, come back to stock guys, it's quite nice here.) or you can use the Trusted Face Unlock from google( For near vanilla roms).

3- On other Devices?
Regarding any other device, I really don't know.

4- Trouble after flashing this?
If you are facing problem after flashing this, kindly dirty flash the rom again and try this, most likely your earlier mods to firmware are causing trouble.

Compactable with China Stable 9.2.1.0?
[Edit] Also compactable with China Stable 9.5.1.0
But since the Setting.apk from this mod is for 9.2.1.0, some new features of 9.5.1.0 will be gone.

I haven't been able to test on that. It most certainly would work.
Revert back if it works successfully.

I am running MIUI Global 9.2 Stable (9.2.1.0 NCFMIEK).
Flashed the file and upon rebooting, I couldn't go past the boot animation (3 dots).

Though considering others here had better luck, confirming it's working for others, maybe it's something I've done prior to this that's conflicting.
