The new Google Pixel 4 smartphone comes with a Face Unlock feature, it has now been discovered that the feature works even when you have your eyes closed.
This could raise some privacy concerns as someone could be able to unlock your device using Face Unlock whilst you are sleeping. Have a look at the video from Chris Foxx from the BBC below that shows this in action.

As we can see from the video this is definitely something that could be a privacy issue, as well as unblocking the phone, Face Unlock is also used for payments and also app sign ins.
As yet there does not appear to be any official comment from Google on this, as soon as we get some more details we will let you guys know.
