Android Advices Verdict

The Visidon App Lock screen Android application is very few of those applications works perfectly to get face unlock feature. We were satisfied with the testing of it but the application interface especially when we configured for the first time seems bit hard and not user friendly for first time users. Yes, through the Face Unlock tutorial we were able to get the settings right after one or two attempts. Most of the other things are clear and uninstall procedure too is unclear.
