    My elder brother can unlock my phone one plus 6 by his face. I tried registering my face in better light several times but the problem stands still.
    I also turned off smart lock but no change is observed since then.
    Do anyone can solve this issue? It seriously disappointing me.

    It is always meant as a convenience feature rather than a security feature.
    Next time, search and read existing threads before creating a redundant thread.

    Don't want your brother to access your phone, disabled face unlock and use the fp-sensor instead... Security is limited on face unlock

    Disable face unlock and don't look back.
    It should never be people's number one feature for phone security.

    We have finger print for a very good reason and it's as secure as things will get.

    I have read this similar thing when op6 launched.
    I think this complain is fake.

    Brothers can look pretty similar even when not twins. What's scarier is when your bulldog can open your phone with face unlock. ;)

    Everyone is giving their suggestion to turn it off. I think OnePlus should remove it if it is not that secure.
    Even Samsung S8 plus has face unlock (iris scan is turned off), I can't unlock my brother's phone. But he cam unlock mine OP6

    Turn off smart unlock.
    You have to be smart to use it.

    I doubt that you have disabled all the intelligent blocking options and still have the same problem, unless your brother is twin.

    In any case, it is already known that facial locking is not a reliable security method, the oneplus system, oneplus said it; it is only a method of "convenience" for the user, not security such as apple or samsung.
