If you ever wanted to use a second face to unlock your Huawei Mate 20 Pro and Mate 20 RS then here is a new update for your device that will allow you to add a second face to unlock your device. While no one likes sharing their phones credential with anyone, there are still chances you might want to allow someone to do so, maybe someone who is really close to you.
However, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro was launched in October last year. If you recall, the device came out with two different unlocking options, in-display fingerprint sensor and 3D Face Unlock.
The 3D Face Unlock feature on the Huawei Mate 20 Pro uses the 3D depth sensing camera system to securely unlock your phone. However, the MIUI 9 on the Mate 20 Pro only allowed users to use a single face to unlock the device until today. But now it looks like Huawei is finally adding up the support to use a second face to unlock the device.
