    Dear forum users,
    I would want to ask you for some help, as I can not get my phone to work the way as I do. To clear the things up, I searched the mobile and web forums ( including the broader internet) and haven't found am anwser yet. I also did clear cache and reboot my phone many times. I tried everything I could find but somehow I couldn't find a solution that would work, so now I am here asking you, the experienced modders of the OnePlus community to help me woth your knowledge.
    I have one main problems:

    The problem:
    When I first got my OnePlus 5T I set up the FaceUnlock and it worked perfectly. But now instead of [the phone] going straight to the home screen when I press the power button and look at it, it first goes to the lock screen, waits a second and then it unlocks (it really is one second, not less). After a day or two it began very annoying so here a fairly good time asking you for help.

    The Oreo update sure has more bugs, but I didn't notice anything I couldn't fix, only the problem with FaceUnlock which I couldn't find a solution for on the internet.
    Please keep in mind that this is my first forum post and English is not my primary language. I tried my best to be gramatically correct and also as polite as I can. I hope this post doesn't offend you, please understand that am relatively new to this and I just want to get anwsers. If you have any constructive criticism about my writing or anything else, please tell me.

    Thank you for taking your time I really appreciate it.
    I hope you have a good day.

    Your post language is fine ;) better than most in fact!
    Removing all registered faces, and fingerprint and other passwords.

    Clear data from Settings>Apps>Application list>3 dots>Show system apps>Face Unlock>Storage>Clear data

    Clear cache from recovery:
    5.Clearing Cache
    1. Power down the phone.
    2.Wait until the device is completely off.
    3.Then press and hold the Power and Volume. 4.Down buttons at the same time.
    5.Continue holding these two buttons during the initial OnePlus splash screen.
    6.When the OnePlus logo goes away, you can let go of these two buttons.
    7.And then wait until the phone boots into Recovery Mode.
    8.Tap on the language of your choice.
    9.Tap on the Wipe Data and Cache option.
    10.Tap on the Wipe Cache option.
    11.Tap the Yes option when asked to confirm.
    12.Wait for the phone to clear the cache partition.
    13.Then tap on the Reboot option to restart the phone.

    Then setup passwords and Face Unlock again.

    face unlock is fast and very useful if its annoying desable it
    this issue can be solved if OP officially implement facelock direct unlock option and another swipe to unlock option in settings.

    First, I want to thank you for a such in-deep and detailed comment. I really appreciate that you took your time to write it and that you read my post.
    Thank you for describing in detail what I need to do so I could do it. I did everything you said, many times, tried some other things, did all things in different patterns, but sadly it didn't work. I'm starting to think OP missed a bug or maybe they updated the face unlock to work like that? I hope it's just a bug because face unlock was great. Thank you for your time.
    I would like to ask you just another question, what do you suggest me to do?
    To downgrade it back to Nougat so I get the FaceUnlock?
    Wait a week or so if they fix it and then downgrade?
    Stick with it? Factory reset? Anything else?
    And if you know, could you tell me of you need to factory reset your phone if you want to downgrade?
    Thank you so much for your time and attention, you really are a good person, thank you.
