Many of us have passwords that either we have to type into our phones when we unlock it or swipe over a number keypad. If you want more security for your Nokia phone, you can try this. Facelock, a facial recognition security app has launched an app, which will let your face be your password for your Nokia phone. How it works is when you set it up initially, the app takes a picture of your face and saves it as code. When you then want to unlock your phone, the phone loads up the camera to look at your face again and if the codes match, you have successfully unlocked your phone.

The app is currently only available for Symbian 3 phones and up, so if you're running Anna or Belle, you should have no problem with the application. The app is available for free (with a beta tag) from the Ovi Store. Does this app make you feel highly futuristic? Using biometrics means we're next going to be able to unlock our phones with our fingerprints or laser eye readers. What do you think? Let us know in the comments section below.
