With face unlock, even when you do it in front of others and they try to imitate you later on, unless they have extremely similar features as yours, there is no way they will be able to enter your account. This is extremely advantageous especially when you usually log-in to your device in a crowded place or in an office where other people are close by. You need not try to conceal what you are doing to protect your privacy.Even when other people see you signing in into your device, they will not be able to imitate it.
